|Maha Chanok Seedling|
It is pleasant to watch the development of flowers on prized trees. Of our mangoes, the Maha Chanok seedling is furthest along the path to flowering. It has many healthy, developing pannicles.
|Nam Dok Mai Seedling|
Our third backyard mango, a Harumanis seedling, is very young. Time will dictate whether developing buds are solely leaf or are the first flowers of a juvenile tree. We hold no expectation of fruit with our fragrant Harumanis... next year, perhaps.
All of the trees are being sprayed with a copper-based spray in an effort to fend off anthracnose infections which will cause flower-drop and a loss of productivity. I will follow the flowering and fruiting of the mango trees in future posts.
