RIP Alphonso Mango Tree
Well, I have a little sad news to report. My Alphonso Mango tree has died. It survived the winter and put out a flush of new growth and inflorescence. I felt pretty confident that I might even get some small mangoes off the tree this year.
Unfortunately the tree was killed by a mole. I saw a bunch of mole trails near the tree and was worried that it might have damaged the roots of my mango tree because mango trees have very sensitive roots (I lost one last year when I re-potted).
I will try to take some pictures and post. Luckily my husband was able to catch the annoyance before it did anymore damage.
The Glenn Mango tree is doing fine. It got a little tip burn on the new, tender leaves during a cold spell we had when I had the trees uncovered.
