The ᴍᴀɴgo is a fruit that originated in eastern Iɴᴅɪᴀ and southern Asia. ᴍᴀɴgoes are one of the fruits that are most frequently grown in the tropics. More than 500 different types of ᴍᴀɴgo exist. Some of them can grow as tall as 100 feet and as wide as 30 feet. Smaller dwarf varieties only grow to a height of 4 to 8 feet, making them perfect for residential gardens. Tommy Atkins is the ᴍᴀɴgo with the most cultivation. It matures to a height of 10 to 12 feet. The ᴍᴀɴgo fruit’s size, flavor, skin tone, and freshness can all vary. The fruit can be round or oval in shape, weigh 6 ounces to 5 pounds, and have skin that changes color from green to orange to yellow with fading red and green streaks as it ages.
Cultivars of ᴍᴀɴgo that do well in one environment may not do well in another. While some ᴍᴀɴgoes may only grow in dry climes, others can thrive in wet environments. ᴍᴀɴgoes can’t all grow in every climate. Speak with the local Cooperative Extension office, a master gardener group, or a local fruit producers’ association to learn which varieties will thrive in your area. When considering the cultivar’s height at maturity, dwarf cultivars work well for the majority of home gardens.
Choose a spot for your plantings that receives full sun and is shielded from strong gusts or breezes. A south-facing wall that can both absorb and emit solar heat is an appropriate location in cooler climes. Add compost or well-rotted ᴍᴀɴure to the soil. To accommodate the roots of the tree, dig a trench that is twice as wide and half as deep. Fill the hole’s bottom with a cup of all-purpose fertilizer. Stake should be buried at least two feet away from the hole’s side. ᴍᴀɴgo trees that are established have deep roots, however young plants need to be staked when they are planted.
When the plant is inserted into the hole, the soil mark from the nursery pot on the stem need to be ᴄʟᴏsᴇ to the earth’s surface. The roots should be widely scattered. Fill in the hole completely to avoid air pockets emerging between the roots by using a mixture of native soil, aged compost, or commercial organic planting mix. Make a small dirt basin around the trunk and moisten the soil when it’s time to water. Attach the tree to the stake using tree ties. After planting, make sure to water each tree well and fertilize it with a liquid starting fertilizer that contains a lot of phosphorus.
ᴍᴀɴgo harvesting tips:
Don’t expose recently harvested fruits to the sun. Both the ᴍᴀɴgo fruit and the stalk it is growing on should be harvested. Otherwise, the gummy mucilage will leak out of the fruit, leaving dark blotches along the stem end. It is conceivable for certain fruits on a single tree not to ripen all at once. As a result, it is suggested that an orchard perform two to three rounds of harvesting each week. When you are picking the fruits, don’t let them fall to the ground. Use specialized harvesters with a blade and nylon net for efficient ᴍᴀɴgo fruit collection and harvesting.
To avoid harm from sap flow, fruits that have been harvested should get their caps removed as soon as feasible. Fruit should be removed from the hot orchard environment as soon as possible after being harvested, and then it should be cleaned and dried before being stored.
