R2E2 mango

    3 responses

Kris starts with ...
Hi I have a air layered r2e2 mango tree which was air layered from a 5 year olds tree, it was planted in a pot for a year and have been transfered to the ground for a year and is growing well. Will it ever fruit and will it be able to witstand Darwin's wild wind and rain with a tap root

Regards
Kris

Kris, it is lychees,rambutans and longans that get air layered most often due to their vigorous rooting.Air layered plants are more prone to blowing over and root rot from wet weather but it is done with more tropcal fruits these days including mangoes.It should be fine especially if it is a bit elevated and water doesn't pool near it.If you prune it very short,keep a permanent stake or espalier the tree it could have a long productive life.

There are 2 pictures of my seed sprouted R2E2 which I planted on the ground in autumn 2011. (It would have been about 3 years old now, I guess).

Hi tecko1
how low did you do the heading cut on the R2e2?
I’m thinking of cutting mine to 5 inches from the ground
Thanks
