Mango Tree In Adelaide

    13 responses

Sort:
Sheepcoate starts with ...
I have a mango tree which I planted a short while ago and it seems to be growing well so far.

Iím a little concerned that over winter the tree may die as I live in Adelaide. We donít get frost or through it does get cold. Just wondering how sensitive Mango trees are too cold? Or should I just resign to the fact that Iím living in a dream world by trying to grow Mangoís in Adelaide? Are there any tactics I can adopt of trying to keep it alive over Winter, or should it survive without any intervention?

There is also an even larger mango tree at Payneham on Port Rush Road, Opposite the BP station (not the BP at the traffic lights). It had plenty of fruits lat time I drove that way.
My in laws also have a nice fruiting Kensington Pride down the western suburbs but only about 2 meters high.

I buried in my garden the stones and skins of a box of KP mangos late 2010. I forgot they were there and about 2 months ago planted a plant in the same area. With regular watering and some TLC for the ailing plant I was surprised to see several shoots appearing. I now have 3 healthy looking mango trees about 22cm high... As I have no room in my garden I plan to put one in a large pot and hope for the best... There is quite a lot of info on the net re growing from seed so have a go TK

They have Kensington Pride (under the name Bowen) at Parafield and Mile End Bunnings currently. Only a few plants left. $30. I've also been growing Honey Golds from supermarket seeds, they're very vigorous and should be true to type, as they are polyembryonic.

Don't worry Sheepcoate, I've got a mango tree growing pretty well and I live in Melbourne. Mango trees should survive down to 0 degrees (which is our lowest minimum) with really basic protection (a cloth draped over or a anti-dessicant spray such as Yates Droughtshield applied) and I'm guessing they could survive down to about -2 degrees if covered as mentioned above with an additional heat source (candle etc.). Here's 2 websites I find helpful: http://www.phoenixtropicals.com/frostDamage.html

Hi Nima, bought an Irwin to grow in a pot and i live in Melbourne. I don't get frost and also my ~2yr K.P potted seedling was unaffected by the winter.

To get them to fruit i will put them in the garage at night to help it fruit as flowers don't like really cold temps and water on them.

You could probably do the same provided your garage/shed has temps over 12 degrees during winter nights when its flowering.

Nima i'm in Adelaide, and both my Florigon and Dwarf Irwin survived winter outside in pots for a few weeks, just to play it safe I put them in a greenhouse which doesn't even really get much sunlight but it's protected from winds etc and the Dwarf Irwin is throwing out new growth.

I reckon it could survive here ok, but it'd probably need to harden up and grow a bit first.

I hear Palmer has a better cold tolerance and disease resistance though? So maybe get a Dwarf Palmer?

Hi Peter91. Thanks for your reply.
I end up getting dwarf Irwin couple of days ago. I decided to plant it in the ground in a corner of my fence and the garage wall (full sun)and I will cover it with clear plastic cover for first 4 or 5 winters.hopefully that Protects it.i was thinking of planting it in a pot but unfortunately I don't have big enough garage or a suitable shed.if this plan doesn't work and I kill it I might get Dwarf Palmer next time:).if it flowers for first 3 years I'll cut them off so the tree gets stronger and can tolerate our climate better. See how we go.
