hey Awal, how's the mango going? cheers gabs.

hi there,yes that was some time ago and i believe the mango unfortunately died during the winter. If i try again i will need to seriously consider some winter protection for it while it establishes. Cheers.

Oh, that's a shame. I would like to try growing a Mango.

Growing well,fruited in second season in fround but fruits were eaten by pests before ripening.Look forward to this year.

Have had heaps of massive fruit since and this time no pests got to my fruit so we baked them in hte oven and ate with honey and cream.Delicious.

Ambarella 8/10

Awal7505's Edible Fruits
Update: 2858 days 10hrs

Comments: -

Plant arrived full of foliage and in good condition.However,due to the cooler weather still persisting in SA,the plant slowly lost all its leaves and we thought it had died.When the warmer weather started,the plant began to grow back with vigour.It was then we planted it in the ground facing a northerly direction.Kept well watered over Summer,Autumn and the plant thrived and gained a lot of new growth.Now into Winter,once more it has lost all its leaves and here's hoping it will spring back to life for the new season.

In the Spring/Summer,plant regained all its leaves and produced new growth,enough to use in Thai food.Very happy.

Planted: 2008
