Northern California Mango Tree Update: Carrie, Lancetilla, Glen, Icecream
Here is a quick update of my mango trees. I bought them in January/February 2009 and did not protect them during the cold spells we had and they took quite a beating. They got hailed on but still survived.
Here is the icecream mango. Instead of sending out new growth flushes it keeps on sending out inflorescence (flower stalks). I keep cutting them off because I want the energy to go towards producing leaves since this is one of the slower growth trees and it took quite a beating during shipping and the hail storm.
My Glenn Mango tree has had 2 growth flushes since february. It is about 4.5-5 feet tall.
Here is a picture of a mango on my lancetilla mango tree. I thinned the other mangos off so that only 2 remain on the tree. I will keep you updated on how long the tree holds the mangos. I don’t think much longer.
