The Mango Tree
A lush, juicy mango is just so sweet to eat. August is the season for mangos. The mango tree that I planted 6 years is finally giving us fruit this year. So, much fruit most is going to the birds. There have got to be at $1,000 mango on the tree. We were thinking of picking them off and putting them at our street with a "free mango's" sign so others could enjoy the mangos as well. My children have mango ball fights. I am glad we only have one tree, that's all we need.
The mango tree needs lots of water to grow and produce so much fruit. It does not like the wind. When choosing a mango tree I suggest the "dwarf mango" as the mango tree tends to grow 40 plus feet, making it quite difficult to pick the fruit. With the dward mango you can just go right up to the tree and pick a mid morning snack.
