Mangifera indica Mango tree Mangga Anacardiaceae
 

Mangifera indica, Mango, Mangga

 

Mangifera indica, Mango, Mangga

The tiny, greenish spring flowers are borne in large sprays.
The fruit resemble enormous peaches, though the skin is smooth, ripening to orange or red.
Seedling trees tend to have furry seeds, making juice extraction awkward, and their flavor is often marred by a bitter aftertaste. Selected cultivars have superior fruit, sweet to the last, with smooth pits; Alphonso is universally regarded as the finest.
Cultivation: Rain at flowering time can rot the blossoms and ruin the crop. Plant in full sun.Prune when young to encourage a single trunk.
In addition to grafting as mentioned above, they can be propagated from ripe seed.
Watch for fruit fly and fungal diseases.
