Wow! It's looking good! Maybe this will be the year it will take off in growth. :>))

I put much effort into the Mangoes. I never let them go so dry they wilt. I fertilize.
I notice my Santa Rosa Plum is in flower. Love them. I wish I had planted one 20 years ago.

Most mango trees are extremely drought-tolerant. However, extreme drought over years will kill them. I know this really nice one that used to have really good mangoes, died a few years ago because it was so extremely drought-stressed! It literally just dried up a few summers ago.

Santa Rosa plums are my favorite! My neighbor has one which she just had trimmed back. She always has people trim her tree who don't know anything about pruning. All the bearing wood was taken off. Crazy!
