My seedling mammea americana has finally flowered after 8 years. I am trying to figure out if this is a male for female flower or otherwise.

Thanks in advance for your responses.


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: 2021 Mango Season (Florida)

Mostly luck I guess. Last year all the flowers dried out and I didn't get a single fruit. I spray my trees pretty frequently with all sort of concoctions. Not necessarily all at once, but I'll spray with micros, kelp, neem oil, copper, sulfur, and some other stuff like 'ripe blend' (kelp4less). Also mix in copper/sulfur depending on time of season. My trees definitely look nice and healthy.
I definitely need a consultation from you. When to spray copper,  sulfur  and in what form and how often. i try to keep everything organic as possible. And what is ripe4less?

Can anyone help me with this PPK? No flowers and no growth this year. You can see it is also only growing on one side. I gave it a healthy dose of Helena 8-2-12 about 6 weeks ago and still nothing. It has been very dry this year, but every other mango I have has flowered or pushed or done something. This one has just been dormant. It had a those green bumps like it was trying to push, but nothing happened. Any ideas?

Not unusual characteristics for a PPK.  Make sure it gets water to go with the fert this growing season.

As for one sided growth, it looks to be lacking any true main branches on that off side.  Without doing major pruning to reshape, it may remain that way.

Remind me in a few months I should have plenty

Thanks skhan, Iíll contact you in a couple months. Cheers,

If the fertilizer has stayed dry most days, it hasn't been doing anything most days.
Yep, I'm in Zone 7a/b and I am doing in ground citrus. I am doing mangos and guava in an unheated greenhouse.
in an unheated greenhouse?? What are your general lows in winter outside and inside of the gh. What is the lowest temp that u have experienced in the gh , thank u :-)

To be honest, I didn't collect that data this year. Sorry.
Yes, both of you Fang & Simon for your input's on growing Yangmei, Fang it's good to see you posting again either I have missed your other posts or whatever but I do know that you have most experience here besides Richard in San Diego area who had good luck with first try at growing these tree's.
