Grow the King of Mangoes at Home!
Always wished for home-grown mangoes? Now, you have the opportunity to plant the “King of Mangoes'' right in your yard!
That's the common name for the Alphonso Mango, one of the most popular mango cultivars. It's highly sought-after due to its incredible flavor, and it’s common in recipes, from desserts to smoothies to savory cooking.
The Alphonso Mango is an evergreen tree, with lush green foliage and tropical growth year-round. It flowers in early December and produces fruits from March to June. The large, oval fruits are dark green when young and golden-yellowish when ripe, while the flesh develops a deep saffron hue.
The best part? You don’t need a green thumb to grow the Alphonso Mango Tree — just make sure to find a spot with well-drained soil and full sun. You can even grow it in cooler climates - just plant it in a container that you can bring indoors in the winter.
If you’re looking to add a mango tree to your garden, you won't want to miss out on the King of Mangoes. Get yours today!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Mango Trees can be planted outdoors in the ground in warm, tropical climates, or in containers in cooler climates. In either case, find a location with full sun - 6-8 hours per day is ideal
To plant your Mango Tree in the ground, dig a hole that's twice as wide and as deep as your Mango Tree's root ball. Place your Mango Tree, backfill with soil, and water generously.
When potting a Mango Tree, choose a pot with good drainage, 1-2 inches larger than your Mango's shipped container. Place your tree, fill with an acidic potting soil blend, and water well.
TIP: Mango Trees prefer sandy, acidic soil. When planting or potting your Mango Tree, use an acidic potting mix to amend your soil to the ideal pH!
2. Watering: Your Mango Tree needs a lot of water while it's establishing - water daily for the first two weeks, and then back off to every 3 days, and then every week. Water more often for container-planted Mango Trees or in times of drought. For ongoing maintenance, water when the soil is dry 2 inches down.
3. Fertilizing: Mango Trees are sensitive to chemical fertilizers, which can burn the leaves when applied incorrectly. For best results, use an organic fertilizer rich in mycorrhizal fungi and beneficial bacteria.
4. Pruning: Pruning can help Mango Trees develop more lateral branches, and produce more fruit. For best results, prune after harvest, creating an open crown so that light and air can penetrate to the middle of the tree.
5. Pollination: Mango Trees are excellent self-pollinators, so you'll get fruit with just one tree. However, you can increase your pollinator power and fruit harvest with more than one!
Alphonso Mango Tree Pollination
Alphonso Mango Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Alphonso Mango Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
