Mango Tree 'Glenn'

Mango trees are only suitable to grow outdoors where temperatures do not usually dip below 40 F (4 C.). Anywhere cooler would need to grow it as an indoor plant. They are deep-rooted evergreen trees, and usually produced off root-stocks that increase the hardiness of the plants. They usually fruit in three years. 'Glenn' is a small tree suitable for container growing - and can be grown outdoors, as long as temperatures don't dip below freezing. Outdoors it will grow rapidly to 20', or if kept it indoors, can be kept to a size of 4' - 8' .

Planting outdoors

From Late Winter TO Early Spring

When planting remove the weeds from surrounding areas and make sure the hole you dig is at least twice the size of the roots. It is advised not to add fertiliser at this time due to the possibility of damaging the tree, however well rotted compost or manure should be forked into the bottom, the tree placed in the hole and back filled, firmed then watered in thoroughly. Keep well-watered until the tree is well established.

 

Propagating by seed

From Early Spring TO Early Summer

Usually mango trees are grown from grafted rootstock, but they can be grown from the stone of a fruit - but bear in mind a tree grown from a stone will not bear fruit for at least 6 years. Slit the husk of a mango stone, and remove the stone from inside and plant it in a pot of compost with 1/4" protruding above soil level. Keep the soil evenly moist and place the pot where temperatures remain at least 70 F. (21 C.). Sprouting may occur as early as eight to 14 days, but can take longer.
