As reported a few months ago, the stand-off between Sig and our mango tree has come to an end. Sig brutally pruned the tree after our last harvest (two years ago). It was supposed to be a dwarf mango after all. Then the tree balked and focused on growth instead of fruit last year. It is now way bigger than it had been prior to the pruning. This February even I was starting to suggest replacing it with something else. Apparently the tree overheard my thoughts on the matter and decided to bloom after all.
We have a fair number of mangos growing on the tree, and even more blooms! I’m so excited! This variety is amazing!
