Question & Answer
Will it be suitable for Sydney climate Is this the best type for my area From: BARDEN RIDGE NSW
Palmer Mango should grow and fruit in the warmer areas of Sydney. Maybe might be better to try Bowen Mangoes as I do know for sure that they crop in Sydney. #MangoBowen659

Keep small by trimming it twice a year. First cut at knee height after 6 months in the ground and now I have a balanced and branches tree. Doesn't seem to need any ferterliser for strong growth. | Julijana Lozovskis - Pacific Pines, QLD 23-Oct-2019
