Forcing mango to not bloom by using high temp?
« on: January 31, 2023, 07:12:47 PM »
I am finally having some success (not killing them within 1 year) with container mangos. I was wondering that if you keep your mango warm during the winter, and it doesnít get any chill time, will that make it put on extra growth cause itís not spending energy on flowers?

Yes, if they are kept above 60 very few varieties will bloom.

Are there some that will? If they donít will they do a flinch of leaves instead?

If its warm when they flush it will be leaves. Bloom is very sporadic without cold but I have heard of some varieties that supposedly can do it. I think Choc Anon is one.
