Mango tree care is similar to that of any fruit tree. Water the trees deeply to saturate the long taproot. Allow the top surface of the soil to dry to a depth of several inches before watering again. Withhold irrigation for two months prior to flowering and then resume once fruits begin to produce.
Fertilize the tree with nitrogen fertilizer three times per year. Space the feedings and apply one pound per year of tree growth.
Prune when the tree is four years old to remove any weak stems and produce a strong scaffold of branches. Thereafter, prune only to remove broken or diseased plant material.
Caring for mango trees must also include watching for pests and diseases. Deal with these as they occur with organic pesticides, cultural and biological controls or horticultural oils.
Mango trees are deep-rooted plants that may become large specimens in the landscape. They are evergreen and generally produced off rootstocks that increase the hardiness of the plants. Mango trees begin fruit production in three years and form fruit quickly.
Growing mango trees in the home landscape will give you a lifetime of fresh pungent fruit from an attractive shade tree.
The juicy, ripe mango fruit has a rich, tropical aroma and flavor that summons thoughts of sunny climates and sweet breezes.
