Mango: 2023 SoCal mango start flowering

<< < (2/4) > >>

My problem, at my location, is powdery mildew. No fruit or 2-3 from a lucky variety for the last 2 years. I'm trying to change this with sulfur spray.

John B:
My in ground  sweet tart(on atulfo rootstock) started to flower. All others growing vegetatively. Quite interesting that it still had hanging fruit and started flowering. I will not let the first bloom flush fruit since it always gets PM  early on.

wow, more than 3 months since I reported of the flower panicles on the trees, and now here they are still with flower buds not open yet. The cold weather slow down the flower development, I think. So far no bad sign of PM yet. I hope the buds will fully open for the bees in March and it should be warmer by then. I also think we only have the best wind from March to early May, before the marine layer moving in causing morning dews in warm weather and it a good recipe for PM. Took this pic this morning on LZ + O-krung tong grafted on HD mexican rootstock:

The tree is 16 years old but no that tall.

16 yrs old grafted tree planted when it's 2 ft tall? Young grafted tree takes forever to grow.

I got about over 2 dozen varieties blooming right now but since most were grafts from last year I don't intend to let the fruit mature.

But my larger trees are blooming quite a bit. I have 3 mature trees blooming(nameless seedling). Hoping for a good year.
