Mangoes are one of my favourite fruits. Love tropical plants and growing them in Melbourne is a challenge but also quite rewarding when it's successful.I had blossoms and tiny fruits on my mango tree in the second and third year but all the fruits fell...

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.

Very tasty fruit, but fruit set depends very much on the weather being right at flowering time, so some years get very little fruit. In 2017 got a huge crop due to the combination of dry weather at flowering time and good rain after fruit set.
