How to plant a Mango
First be sure that there is no possibility of freeze ever at the location
where you want to plant it. If there is an occurrence of 32 F. then you
must move it inside or build a temporary covering for the top and sides
all the way to the ground and possibly add heat (light bulb). The
construction of the temporary frame and plastic tent for trapping heat
should be thought out and practiced ahead, the materials, ladder and
tools made ready and any rain gear and work lighting prepared in
Plant the tree at least 50 feet away from any buildings, power lines or
anything that will shade it.
Countersink the tree by digging a hole within a hole...a hole for the tree
to go in centered in a very shallow, much wider hole to hold rain water
and heavy dew. First dig a disc shaped hole that's wide and
shallow, about 4 inches deep and two feet or more larger in diameter than
the center hole. Dig the center hole where the tree goes just a little
wider than the Mango Tree's root ball and not quite as deep as the root ball is tall.
About 2 inches at most of the root ball should stick up out of the planted center
hole after you drop the tree into the center hole. As you fill the hole,
putting dirt down between the roots and the sides of the hole, don't spill
any dirt on the top of the tree's root ball, none. Use
a long stick to pack the dirt down the sides between the roots and the
sides of your hole so you don't have any air pockets.
The purpose of the
"counter sink" is to cause any rain water to flow toward the
tree by use of the broad shallow depression-like hole. The purpose of
leaving a couple inches of the root ball uncovered, sticking out of its hole,
is it helps for
good breathing...air transfer and other reasons.
Don't put anything into the tree hole except the tree and enough of the
same dirt that came out of the hole. Put no
fertilizer, no nothing. The reason is that we want the roots to grow
quicker so we make the tree hungry. Water it in really, really good.
Submerge it. Water it until there are no more bubbles and then some more. Flood
it WITH A HOSE for ten minutes once every day for three days. Then water
for five minutes with a hose every third day for a month then
after that only during dry spells. Too much water or fertilizer in the spring can burst the
fruit. The leaves point straight down when the tree is really dry.
New growth leaves on the top is red or yellow colored until the sun turns
Spray KOCIDE, (copper sulfate, buy at Garden Center) for fungus, (black
spots), properly mixed, every two weeks but in damp weather spray once a week. Use a fine mist sprayer
(spend money for a quality plastic adjustable one quart spray bottle) and be sure to
spray the ends of the limbs real good as well as the undersides of the leaves. The
roots hate the copper so don't let it drip on to the soil, use plastic and
on the dirt to absorb the drippings. The first six weeks after planting is
the only risky time. Mango Trees are historically used to bad conditions,
they are hardy survivors...don't baby them to death.
For the first 3 years apply about one level tablespoon of 12-5-9
(scattered) per foot of tree height in fall after all the fruit have been
picked. After the tree is three years old start using 4-4-8 with trace
elements, apply about 1/4 cup once yearly after all fruit are picked.
(Palm and Avocado Fertilizer works great also Citrus Fertilizer is good.
Remember Mango Trees are hardy survivors.) Fertilizer is mixed with a
gallon of warm water and applied to the DAMP soil, not dry, not wet. Apply
about a quart daily for four days. Do not use too much fertilizer.
Mango trees need less fertilizer than
the same area of lawn grass! For more go to

All quality mango fruit come from grafted trees. It is about impossible for any mango seed
to produce worthwhile fruit. All mango trees grown from seeds are correctly called
"Wild Mango" and their fruit is always inferior, usually small, fibrous and pine
flavored. The only use for wild mango is as rootstock, which is the bottom part of the
graft. Remember the scion, which is the top part of the graft, is a part of one individual
tree...one DNA, the cultivar. Grafting is very close to cloning.
Be a Good
Whenever you discover a mango tree that has frozen back to the stump and it (the
rootstock) has branched and grown, kill it, so no one will sample it's inferior
"free" fruit and form an aversion to all mangoes.

Gardening and Drip Irrigation (Low Volume) are Absolutely Genius Ideas!
Gardening in America is more and more about water conservation. Drip irrigation and
container gardening, two water saving ideas, can be especially successful with evergreen
trees like the Mango. Remember, Mango trees are fruit trees as well as decorative house
plants. Think of them as a tropical, living Christmas tree in a pot! Mangifera
Indicia L. are live trees, containerized, and they yield gourmet fruit! Plus they have
beautiful flowers. Use them as a live Christmas tree or for any holiday. They are green
potted plants that make great birthday presents. A sweet gift. Imagine the mango recipes
you can be cooking. You can be eating delicious, organic foods ... home grown fresh fruit!
