Mangoes grow on shoots that form on last year''s wood. Prune trees lightly, removing weak, diseased, or dead twigs and branches. Prune right after harvesting.
Any good, deep, well-drained soil.
Water deeply, keeping the soil moist but not wet
Fertilize with plant food formulated for tropical plants.
Harvest when the fruit has turned yellow or reddish and the flesh yields slightly when squeezed. Pick the fruit by twisting it sideways or upward sharply to snap the stem, or clip the fruit off with pruning shears, leaving a small piece of stem attached to the fruit. The milky mango stem sap can cause skin irritation in some people.
