Mango - Kensington Pride grafted

This variety is biennial so fruits more heavily every second year. Jan 2018 we had >200 excellent fruit from our 14 year old tree, this year none. We are near the beach north of Coffs Harbour. Do not water after flowering as it causes bud drop.

Bought from the local nursery, this grafted tree already had flowers and small fruit which I removed. Since going into the ground, it has done well. If it gets strong enough, I may let it fruit next year.

CONNOLLY, WA, Australia

This tree is about 5 years old it was bought from KMart for $10 as it looked sick, it gave two fruit the first year I planted it into the ground.  I then transplanted it to the current location and it gives about 5 to 10Kg of fruit in season.

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 mangoe...

I love mangos, and a dwarf variety would suit my backyard to a tee!

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.

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.This ph...
