Mango - Kensington Pride grafted

Just picked and ate our first mango ,we live near Blue Mountains & get heavy frosts. It was delicious! Has been in 1 year about 1 metre high.We made a timber structure with mesh we can pull around it in winter against heavy frosts. | Jenny - Mulgoa, NSW 17-Apr-2010

Very healthy but have not fruited yet.  Purchased from Daleys.

August 2009:  Some flowering activity recorded

September 2009:  Some growth recorded.  Also observed tips of leaves becoming burnt / brown.  Will stop cow manure fertilising and replace with fruit fertiliser.  Will also water tree from rain water tank as salinity in town water may be suspect.  All brown edged leaves are snipped off.

September 08th, 2009:  Disaster!  Found one third of my tree on the ground; the possible work of cockatoos.  Pruned and hope for the best.  Applied sulphate of potash and watered in.  Only rain water is used for this mango tree.  Leaves still look normal.

October 2009:  Continued with watering with rain water.  Leaves look normal.  No browning observed.

November 2009:  Looking healthy and some growth recorded.

December 2009 to March 2010:  Noticeably much bigger with lots of growth recorded.  Recommenced watering with town water.  No more leaves turning brown since.

Mango - Kensington Pride grafted (Grafted) 9/10

Linnie's Edible Fruits
Update: 1722 days 21hrs

Comments: -

We started out with 6 mangoes. Two were Bowen seedlings given to us by a neighbour, two were Kensington Pride, which I think are just rebadged Bowens, (aren't they?), and two were Glen? and Florigan? Anyway, the Kensington Pride taste like real mangoes to me... the perfect balance of sweetness/acidity, so, when the frost almost killed the two dwarf grafted types, we cut them back to stumps so as to regrow the Bowen rootstock. We are looking forward to more Bowens in the next fruting season. 

Fruiting Months January and December

Planted: 1997

Height 3 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 2

First Fruited: 4 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Summer

Pollination: Cross Pollination

Cross Pollinator Variety: Did initially have Glen and Florigan, with Kensington Pride and seedling Bowens. Not sure what is ahppening now with pollination.

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Mulch, compost, Five-in-one, etc

When I Fertilise: Yearly

Pest Control:

Tried 'exclusion bags' to keep bats/fruit flies/possums out. Possums/bats just chewed into the fabric and we found dessicated mango mush in the bottom of each bag! If possums/wallabies get worse, may have to put tin collar around trunk and trim off l

Update: 1876 days 21hrs

Comments: - Flowering this year already and it's only August. I would prefer they flowered a little later as it can still get too cold for fruit setting.

Great tree with great fruit.......full of flavour and no fibre at all.  I keep all my mango trees at about 3 metres tall (I have 4 all together, and cut back 1 each year).  This one is in amongst my vege garden, and has a compost bin sitting right underneath, so gets all the nutrients it needs from there.

Pollination: No

These are doing ok - they have burnt leaf margins either due to wind or salinity issues.

There were pruned at 1m to encourage branching and strong framework. They are a bit slow growing - I think they need more water in summer to push them along.
