Don't water mango now. It is normal a mango will shed some fruit this time of year. But, when you water the tree thinks it is growing season and will shed even more. At least that is the theory. Once a mango is established, and it doesn't take long, maybe 3 months. Don't ever water it again. I don't. My Glenn mango probably has about 2,000 fruit on it right now.

However, Irma did hurt most of my other mango. They have bounced back.

My mango is FULL of fruit. Going to be a huge year in spite of small fruit drop every now and then.

Well Water: depends on the quality. A lot of salt probably not good, especially for avocado. Avocado needs more water and care. Sort of like a citrus in care. Mango....never water it. especially this time of year when in full bloom. So far we have had perfect dry and warm conditions for mango. Mango like it dry this time of year.


Our squirrels have become accustomed to the sound of the daisy BB gun getting cocked. They freeze as soon as they hear it. When the BB's roll down the barrel, they take off. I take great pleasure in lobbing a BB in to the hindquarter of the furry bastards.
