Northern CA mango 2020 : this is going to be a great year for mango for us. We should call it year of the mango. 

With less rains and Warner winter , Got lots of flowers on my trees . The lemon zest is going crazy with the blooms.

I used to live on the other side of the bay from redwood city. I'm surprised you are able to grow mangoes there.
I'm an hour north of sacramento and they are struggling here.

funny that the rosigold is the only tree that is 100% in ground , but not doing that great with growth and blooms.  The rest of the trees are in large pots with the bottom cut off.  not sure if the gophers are attacking the rosigold or something .  And some flowers survive the winter and is saving a small fruit.  In the green house, plantogram Mahachanok is also having little babies and also toe size fruit that is ready to pick. 

Lemon zest :

Iíve neglected my yard this year but my Lemon Zest is on itís second bloom which is coinciding with this week long rain event going on right now. There is Powdery Mildew on my LZ blooms and new foliage so we will see if any fruit holds. Even with the PM, I usually still get some fruit set but most the fruit eventually drop at approximately 1-2 inches in length. I donít want to use PGRs in an attempt to increase yields, I donít even know if such a thing exists.

My Sweet Tart on Double rootstock is flowering and it usually holds several fruit to maturity. I did not get any frost at my location this year, first year with no frost in the last 6-7 years that I can remember.

I have not visited Leo Manuel in about a month because I donít want to get him sick, my daughters catch a lot of bugs from school. Leo has so many varieties that were selected in his yard that he always has several varieties of Mangos producing well in any given year.

Both the rats and squarely will most likely beat us to it before it turns ripe.   Funny ,even my chickens are eating green cherimoya.
