Mango Tree (Mangifera indica)

Mango Tree (Mangifera indica) (Mango Tree (Mangifera indica))

This mango tree had hundreds of little grape-sized fruit at the end of the branches. It's going to be a very good mango year for these people. Photo taken in San Diego, CA. on March 3, 2020.

Yes, it's a good-sized tree. It's been there for many years. I think more than 40 years. It was mentioned in a book called: Exceptional Trees in San Diego back in the mid-to-late 80's. I know a few years ago it was drastically cut back. It looked really awful! Someone just hacked it back!

Well it's done really well for the cut back. They will have to get another photo for another book if they do one.

I see buds on mine..but not close to having fruit yet. March and small fruit?..pretty amazing for California.

I noticed several mango trees flowering in November and December here. I'm surprised it set fruit, wet conditions during flowering, as you know, is not good for fruit set in mango trees. The flower in the dry season and grow fruit in the wet season. I do remember back in 2015 driving through Los Angeles and seeing mature ripening fruit hanging on the mango trees in early June. That's south Florida's mango season, not in California. Lol!

They love sunny dry days. Makes me wonder if Mangoes are native to an Indian climate that has a long..but warm..dry season?

Yes, mangoes are native to India and Southeast Asia. It's where there's usually a monsoonal climate. Typically the dry season is in winter. I think that's why mangoes flower in the winter, for the most part.
