Here's my report from SW Broward County:

Mature Trees:

Julie - Best fruit set since living here, but tree was in bad shape when we moved in.  Looks like anthracnose will take out almost all the fruit.  I didn't spray it before or after blooming.

Phillipine - Amazing fruit set, it's alternate bearing in my yard, but the amount of mangos it produces in the "fruiting" year makes it totally worth it.

Kent - Sets and fruits a very good amount every year, reliably.  Has a lot of fruit set this year.  Maybe more than last year.

Younger Trees:

Ice Cream - Had a full bloom and some fruit set, but I think PM set in at the last minute and now only 2 fruitlets hanging on.  Didn't get around to spraying it.  Tree has been in the ground from a 3g in 2019/2020.

Carrie - full bloom, about 30ish fruits hanging on.  Tree planted 2 years ago from a 3g.

Orange Sherbert - No bloom, but did bloom back in 2021 and set fruit, but I had planted it from a 3g that year and took off the panicles.  Did not bloom last year.

Sweet Tart - No bloom, planted it from a 3g in 2021.  Did not bloom last year, but had 3 little fruits I cut off when it bloomed in 2021.

Pickering - Planted it from a 3g in 2021.  Set fruit last year, but cut the panicles so it could grow.  Has a lot of setting fruit for being so small.

Sugarloaf - Planted it from a 7g in 2021.  Has been blooming and setting fruit every year I have had it, but it took a hard trimming last year for shaping purposes, so not all the branches have bloomed, but there is a decent amount of fruit set on the flower panicles.  This is the first year I will let it carry fruit.

Seacrest/Triplesec - No blooming this year or last year.  Planted from a 3g in 2021.

M4 - Planted from a 3g in 2021.   Full bloom and lots of setting fruit--very excited about this one! 

Honey Kiss - Tiny, very slow-growing tree.  Planted from 3g in 2021.  Bloomed and has about 15ish fruit hanging on right now. 

I trimmed trees pretty hard last year to encourage more branching, so it's possible that OS and ST didn't like that, though I think I trimmed before August (I can't remember for sure).  I think Seacreast wants to be a huge tree and will take some maturity to bloom.

This year I will be planting: Lemon Zest, Fairchild, Saigon, Cecilove, Imam Passand, and Zill 40-26 and am excited about these varieties.  :)

Good to get detailed info like that sumognat. You should have a nice summer.

Happy to have found some guava and at least 1 m4 still holding. Trees are young and plenty to back them up, but really want these to start pumping out primo mangoes.

Anyone seeing flowers/frutis on m. casturi? Mine has been just sitting there for 2 years now. Not even the extended dry period (drought?) here in South Florida has triggered flowering this year. Gonna put a tv near it playing The Bachelor nonstop to see if that stresses it into flowering. Something has to work, or the axe.

Update:

Sugarloaf/Zill E-4 : 8 by 7 foot tree with 3 inch across trunk girth. planted October  2019,  ..set 11 fruits that are grape size. I would expect a few to fall off for sure. Set fruit through mild powdery mildew.

Baileys marvel: planted august 2019: 12x10 foot tree with 6 inch across trunk girth- set over 150 fruits up to grape size. Set through mild powdery mildew also. Of course I expect the tree to drop quite a few but very happy with the promising fruit-set.

Other trees I have removed  fruit from , too small: baby Pickering set 8 fruit even though only 3x3  foot.

Pineapple pleasure: planted last summer I tip pruned throughout year so just pushed leaves. Next year could be its year if good rainy season growth and no nutritional/disease issues.

It looks like Truly Tropical/The Mango Place in Delray Beach is going to have a great mango season, too.

Anyone have a forecast from what they're seeing now as to the peak of the season this year? I am considering a trip out to FL again, was a blast last year but was at the tail end. Don't want to miss it this year if it's truly as epic as y'all are saying.

Mango harvest season in Sebring, FL



The Rosigold was blooming after the first cold spell in late November. I picked the first ones about a week ago. No Blooms on Maha, Sweet Tart, Glen, Son Pari, Yehangar and Venus. Pickering, Sugar Loaf and Angie are doing particularly well.

Congrats Yoski! I live in the area but have no early variety mango tree. Enjoy them!
They look delicious!

Sugarloaf coming along:


Coconut Cream seedling fruitlets:


Was hoping other seedling trees would push some blooms, but guess I have to give up on that this season.

Your Sugarloaf is loaded (for SL standards)!  Congratulations!  How old is your tree?

MangoMaven888, it was planted as a small 3gal April 7, 2019. It grew rapidly and first fruited in 2021--I removed most of the fruitlets, but missed a couple. My timing on picking them sucked, so I hope to do better this year. Last year the tree bloomed but the freeze ended that and set the tree back quite a bit. It bounced back rapidly and lost a couple limbs in Hurricane Ian, but this is where it is today. I doubt it'll hold on to all, but still hoping for a good amount to make it.



bovine421, how old is that graft? Looking forward to a taste report!

That's awesome!  I know Alex mentioned SL will grow out of the disproportionate male to female flower ratio as the tree ages.  It's sounding like 4 years might be the lucky number to start rounding 3rd base..based off 1 sample size haha! 

I have a 3 gallon, planted in June 2020 and this is the first year it's large enough to hold fruit.  Flowered enthusiastically (but mostly male flowers), and expecting only about 14 mangos on a 7' - 8' tree.  Hoping next year will be loaded like yours..or I may just have to plant more of them haha!

Great pics and updates everyone! Still looking like a nice season.

Planted our 3 gal Sugar Loaf 4/2019. It held a few fruit last year, but critters beat me to them.

She's holding more this year:

I also planted one 2019 it’s about 8 foot by 6 foot tree now and set about 14 fruit and holding 9 at the moment. I think you’re “plant more of them”
Idea is actually a good one and if you get one that is more productive you can always top work or eliminate the others…thinking about planting another one myself. Maybe a seedling that I sprouted to see if the male flower thing isn’t as much of a problem as it is on my tree (it’s MAJORLY male flowers every year). ButAlex said the trees may grow out of that trait as they get bigger and older…

I have a E4 similar size but only 1 left after the wind, fungus, & normal drops. The 1 is about the size of yours.

However, 2  panicles bloomed and about 4 miniature bb size fruits are on it so maybe a late season possibility also on the reblooms.

Carrie trees have many many reblooms.

Same. Should get my first fruits this weekend. Hoping the rain didn't wash out the flavor. Then again, I mostly love Glenns just for the smell.
On another note, finally got a good crop on my Coconut Cream. Such a shy bearer for me.
