The fruit vary a lot is size,taste and flesh yield and there is a big difference between good ones and bad ones.The trees get very large but are highly productive.One around the corner from me has filled an entire backyard.

Luc it is the average 1/4 acre housing lot backyards I was talking about and the particular large tree may be over 40 years old.They can be pruned to 15 to 20 ft but if they are let they can get a bit outa hand.I have only noticed a couple of whoppers and they have been from very large fruiting types.The canopy can be very broad also.

Mike , maybe i'll just plant one then....It is a nice fruit to have in a collection but a good mango is still better to eat.

Hi Mike,

It takes how many year for the tree from seed to bear fruits.

I have seen quite small trees with fruit on and could only guess their age at 4 maybe.They grow pretty fast.
