How to plant a Mango Tree: 
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 advance. 
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 them green.
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 rags laid 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 Page three.

Don't  Plant Mango Seeds...
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 Citizen...
 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. 
See our page, "Growing Mango Trees".

 Container 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!

MANGO TREES DIE OR SUFFER GREAT DAMAGE AT 32 F. 
...SO COVER THEM UP OR BRING THEM INSIDE.
