Two newb questions Mango flowers
« on: January 13, 2021, 04:59:09 PM »
This tree is flowering. At the top there is flush growth that happened over the Thanksgiving holiday. Any chance that the new growth can flower later on?


Do late season grafts usually flower?


Phoenix grafted in August.

The growth can still turn into a partial bloom if the weather is cool enough. If the previous flush was able to rest for an extended period of time, you will have a better chance of partial blooms. You also have the chance that other parts of your tree will bloom later on.


Late season grafts, if they push during a period of cool weather can easily push blooms or partial blooms.

Yes and yes.  Make sure no fruit develops on the new graft.  As I described in the other thread, pluck any fruit off when eraser head size.  Definitely dont want any added weight stress on the new graft.

Phoenix is an awesome variety I got the bud wood at the beginning of the week I did not want to wait till the weekend. After a long day  my mind and eyes were tired so I basically sharpened them  like a carpenter pencil  I attempted a side veneer graft but I burger that up and just  pruned branches off.I did cleft graft and amazingly all three took a first for me. Phoenix is the perfect name for that variety.

Thank goodness for (music)( mangoes) and this forum. :)
