Good morning all. I have recently moved to a property that has a lot of fruit trees. I've been able to identify a mango trees (1 large 2 small), lemon tree (1 large 1 small), lime tree, mulberry tree (very large), mandarin tree (gives small, sweet, has seeds fruit), guava tree (large), pawpaw tree (large). How do I maintain these to get the best possible fruit from them? How often to water them? Do I need to prune them? When are they suppose to fruit? Etc
Thanks for any and all advice.
Stevie

None of your pictures are working for me.

My suggestion would be to drive around the area and look for a garden with reasonably well tended fruit trees and drop in on the householder. I don't know any fruit grower who wouldn't be willing to discuss someone else's fruit trees in a situation like yours and local advice is likely to be good advice.

One thing though - young citrus trees are seedy but they improve with age. Beyond that, without seeing it I wouldn't like to comment on fertiliser or pruning needs.

Here's pictures of all my fruit trees. I've asked around my neighborhood but no one was in an info sharing mood. I just want to know how often I should be watering them, should I prune them, do I need to use fertilizer?

Thanks for all your help.

Should also mention that a lot of the trees have a plastic tube that seems to go from the top of the soil to the roots. I'm assuming that is where I'm suppose to water the trees instead of just all over the leaves and ground. I've attached a photo.
Thanks.
