So far the largest Mango fruit I've ever had..still ripening. Its bending the branch over by itself. So,I now know...the larger the tree,the larger the fruit. I wasn't sure all these years if I was going to get the previous seasons small but sweet fruit or if this tree's fruit will ever get sizeable. I got the the answer.
I am though more realistic in growing these. If you are in the bay area? Plant 3-5 at least. One tree will take 5 years to produce something,and at this rate 10-20 years for one Mango tree give you plenty. Numbers will decrease the wait for more fruit.
Another must have if you hire me as your bay area mango guru :lol: is That you need a spot that gets dawn to dusk sun..and a wall to add to that is even better. Do not bother me with "Its not growing" if you have it under a Redwood tree or on the shady side of the house.
Here's todays Mango photo-

Wow Stan! You really are spoilt living in such a nice warm sunny climate, I can imagine what it must be like to go outside and pick your very own fresh mangoes.

Thanks Adrian :D . Its a once a year brief experience. Usually,you wait until just the lightest tug,gets it to give. Last time..they were green like this until one week in September..it quickly turned all tan. I dont know if thats just me,or a California thing,or the variety.
You can always grow Lemons in the UK with the usual protections. Avocados are the same hardiness,but unlike Lemons they wont bear much if at all in a large pot.
Somebody in the UK must have a GH with subtropical fruits. I wish he or she would post.

Since my tiny tiny Licuala Mapu pulled I would say
the Kerriodoxa Elegans is the most exciting palm. :mrgreen:
