Hi Thao,
There are lots of people growing mango in SA.
Check out these threads

Bowen / Kensington pride or R2E2 are probably your best bet and seedlings which are polyembryonic.
I have a 10 foot fruiting KP which I grew from a supermarket seed.

Longan, No problem, Lychee a bit more fussy but I have fruited one in a sheltered spot.
Jackfruit, I have grown the "more cold" tolerant varieties out in the open but they were very young trees and never fruited. Daley's have a listing which includes some of the more cool tolerant varieties, such as Yulaten.

There is an amazing large mango tree on the corner of Portrush Road and John Street in Payneham here. It produces full grown fruit each year. Every now and then I check it out. One day I must talk to the house owners. The tree grows on the fence line frontage on Portrush Road side with heaps of traffic going past every day. Hope this helps....cheers Theresa

Last week I saw a 3 meter tall mango tree along James St (just off Lower North East Rd) in Campbeltown. It certainly had lots of fruits on them. Planning to door knock and ask the houseowner to find out which mango species and where he/she bought the plant from and how long ago.

I'd grow mangoe in SA for sure...? If it can grow and fruit in the south west of WA - then why not?
The only problem may be rain at flowering time...but (apparently) you can snip off those unfortunate rain affected flowers - and the tree will soon flower again...? (and maybe at a better time)

The micro climate is important. The north side of a house where it receives good sunlight in the winter and has some protection from wind will help. They are sensitive to frost, and low lying areas will be more subjected to the likelihood of frost. As they get older they can handle frost better. The classic ideal situation is on a north facing hill where winter sunlight is maximised. If there are cold temperatures during flowering then you may get poor fruit set. Mangoes are grown commercially at Renmark, and although it is further north, it is inland whereas you are closer to the ocean which should give you avoid winter frost.

There are some in Auckland and they seem to prefer a volcanic soil and a slow trickle irrigation. Open to a bit of air movement can help.

Hi Grant,

Do u know where to buy longan tree in Adelaide?

Do Longan trees need a pollinator or is it self-fertile?

I live in Hallett Cove and would love to plant a longan tree. any advise will be appreciated.

Try Perrys Fruit and Nut nursery at Kangarilla Nick L, not cheap but good plants and excellent advice.

Large mangoes and Longans are also growing near my house in Melbourne so they should also grow in South Australia.

But I want to try the grafted dwarf Longan now, but can't find them. Daleys and Forbidden don't have any. I think the grafted ones should also produce fruit better on their own.

Hey I planted a mango 5 years ago and it fruits extremely well now.
My tips
1 . Plant on mound especially if got clay soil
2. dig in some peat moss b4 planting and occasionally add more.. they love slightly acidic soils.
3 Plant on north side of house if you can. Mine is between my north brick wall and neighbor's fence so there's extra heat during winter.
4 prune tips to create bushy growth.

Mangoes can grow in Melbourne which is a lot further south than Adelaide and also avocados as well, get the grafted ones don't try and grow from the seed.
