For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Mango in a partially shady place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. During the winter season we advise protecting the roots of the youngest species with straw or dry leaves; when planting young plants we can ensure them to a stake, which maintains them erect.During this time of year we shouldn't worry about minimum temperatures, in fact the The Mango can bear temperatures a few degrees below zero.
The development of the The Mango is erect; in genereral in the lower part they have a pretty bare stem, while p many ramifications develop towards the top. Mango Is an evergreen; during summer iIt assumes a red colouring; the adult specimens are medium in size and reach 20 m high. As they grow, these plants become the size of a tree.
The fruit plants are fertilized using manure or other organic fertilizers; Towards the end of the winter letís plant the fertilizer at the foot of the plant.
Letís avoid watering the The Mango excessively, always leaving the soil dry for a few days between one watering and the other, therefore letís irrigate the substratum deeply every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water . From April to October letís remember to clean our orchard periodically from infesting plants, which otherwise use a part of the water and of the fertilizer that we feed our plants.
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
They favour dissolved soils, with an excellent drainage.
