Has anyone grown them off season before? I was curious if the quality is lower. I struggled with mangos for years (killed so many trees) and finally grew my first one (ate it 1 week ago). My plant (Pickering) flowered in the fall cause I left it outside until September. I got my first fruit around jan 10. Tasted great, but then again Iíve only had poor mangos up here in Canada. So I was thinking I could try and stagger my trees and get them fresh all year.

It looks like it's going to be a good year.  I've got confirmed bloom on Banganpalli, Jehangir, Kesar, Jumbo Kesar, Julie, Dot, East Indian, Janardhan Pasand, USDA Himsagar, Neelam, Mahmood Vikarabad, #11, and Alumpur Baneshan.   I'm spraying the heck out of them this year cuz I'm tired of losing fruit to powdery mildew attacks.  Waiting for bloom on Borsha, Malda, Sindhri, Manohar, Sonpari, Panchadarakalasa, Dashiri and Royal Special.

Probably most interesting collection of mango trees, why did you decide on these varieties?

Thanks,

Joe

It's not the best to grow mangoes in the winter in my experience. I try to time mine in coordination with the FL schedule. The summer heat really helps with it. My trees will flower around march but this year it looks like early to mid feb. If it blooms during fall, I'd try to remove and reset the flowers. The ones I let fruits during winter up north just never grew big and didn't have the best taste they could have gotten.

Orange Sherbert is jumping in now, and a recently planted Edward is pushing blooms too. Oh, and Kesar is getting busy with the blooms.

Waiting on Kasturi, which may be stressing from no rain, along with Coco Cream and NDM4. All others are either flowering, in pots, or not ready to hold fruits.

I now have 100 percent FULL bloom on Baileyís marvel, Pickering, sugarloaf is blooming from
all stems except for the New growth below large branch I trimmed last summer.

 Side note:

Maybe this always happens ??

Pickering oozed white sappy liquid from all stem ends while pushing bloom spikes out, and sugarloaf is oozing black sappy liquid from all flower spike ends as they emerge.

Wow, great news most everyone!

Seems will have a long season here, with flowers currently in all different stages.

Feeling really happy, as I just found blooms on Coco Cream. Such a great mango, when it produces.

I just had my Alphonso start flowering up here, I tried keeping it above 65F to prevent it from flowering but it didnít work.

As per request of someone here are some pictures of the flowering trees now. Photos donít go through pms so now you all have the privilege of seeing them lol. Mango trees are not hard to grow or fruit so this year Iím going to invest in several more varieties especially after tasting and selecting my favorites each summer. This year it looks like my blooms are more in line with FL as opposed to blooming later like most years. Hope you all enjoy!

Let's hope this year makes up for last which for me, stunk!
My couple year in ground trees looking like i'll have fruits to remove if panicles keep coming!  :)
M4 & Pickering almost every branch will have them.  Last year zero on all.
Cogshall starting, Maha nothing, Peach cobbler nothing, Phoenix nothing, Raw honey nothing.
Big ol Kent starting.
Hope they live up to the tasting table vids, i never tasted any.  Heck i love my Kent though.

Thank you! Not really a secret, but they just seem to grow for me. I did struggle with anthracnose or something and maybe sooty mold, but spraying with neem oil and copper fungicide cleaned things up. The trees pictured are in ground or in rootmaker pots that are bottomless so they are growing directly into my native soil which is part clay. Seems to be doing fine. It must be those turpentine rootstocks carrying them LOL.

This is happening on my pickering as well. Its a new tree for me so wasn't sure if it was normal.

On a different note, my glenn is pushing pannicles from all over the tree the last few weeks.

Hi Ed,
I've had anthracnose on a tree before, but spraying got rid of it. The greenhouse can get pretty wet and condensation can drip at times which is not the best. Luckily it's only during winter.

Thank you! The same to you also. Mango is such a good fruit I regret not buying more when I first started of collecting. Oh well, that just means getting more trees now!

Jaboticaba45: Your mango trees look amazing. And doubly impressive that they are flowering already. How warm do you keep the greenhouse in winter to get bloom this early?

Thank you! I let it go between 40-45 sometimes even lower. Seems counterintuitive, but as long as it's above freezing, it's ok to get cold temps (I know people who keep theirs at 55 out of fear the plants will die) This year it may have gone below that when it was super cold (maybe 35?). Other than that, not much. Normally they bloom later. I don't know what's happening. The mallika panicles are only 2 on the tree right now, and are just early ones. I suspect the main bulk will pop in a month or so. Still pretty early though. I guess downside is there are no bees, but not worried at all. Plenty of ants and others going around. I've never seen bees on mango flowers.

Guava/Sein Ta Lone








Fruit set shots should be coming soon

Miami-Dade had a near record low for Jan 2023 (.05 inches), which is about 5th least rainfall since records have been kept.

At out home, via my weather station, we got .03 inches of rain in January. Have barely used the sprinklers as well.  I think that and the cold spells have been contributory to the flowering extravaganza.

Time to water
