Nam Doc Mai mango trees

Postby thewayes » Fri Sep 24, 2004 7:00 pm

Hi all I am new to this so I will try.I have around 35 different fruit trees and they are all healthy and produce a lot of fruit but I have a Nam Doc Mai mango tree and it only produces around 3-6 mangos each year. The tree is very healthy and around 5-6 years old. My other mango trees bowen and R2E2 produce well. I live in the south east of Brisbane. Does anyone have an idea of what could be wrong?

Regards thewayes

Welcome to the site. It's amazing what you find out when you go back over the old topics too. How old is your mango? My book says they do not come into heavy bearing until ten years old. :-? Fertiliser high in nitrogen for young trees, established trees feed with citrus food. Mid Spring, early Summer, late Summer and mid Autumn. I have a young one growing from seed and another one about two years old, so it will be a while before I get any fruit :!:
