Growing Alphonso and Valencia Pride mango in pot

    3 responses

Db starts with ...
Hi All, is anyone growing Alphonso or Valencia Pride mango tree? How is the growth habit of these varieties? I know VP is vigourous grower, can these two varieties be kept small in pot by regular root and vegetation pruning? Has anyone got Alphonso mango tree from Daleys to fruiting stage? If yes how is the taste?

I grew up eating Alphonso before moving to Australia so I know its very good quality.. Not sure if we can get that quality here in Australia. After long wait I recently received Alphonso mango tree from Daleys so very excited to grow it.. Planning to grow in pot to keep it small but unsure of its growth habit, productiveness etc.. Any comments on these two varieties will be highly appreciated..

I did research into those two varieties, they are quite big trees and led me to give up on the idea of growing in pot.

However, having said that, KPs are massive trees and members here have success in fruiting them (from seedlings).

So I'm going to say yes it is possible but that's my own 2 cents hunch.

One alternative to the Alphonso, which I grow is the Ataulfo. And I've had that fruited over 2 seasons/years. First time it tasted 8/10 but this year, and not sure why, they were only 6/10.
