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.
