HOW TO PLANT PINK MANGO

If you want to have a pink mango tree in your home, check out all the procedures to be able to plant this fruit. First, it is worth mentioning that the mango adapts well to places that have clearly defined dry and rainy seasons. The driest time must occur before the flowering of the mango tree, which will allow the plant to rest vegetatively. In addition, this period should be extended until fruiting, to avoid damage caused by pests such as powdery mildew and anthracnose.

After the tree bears fruit, rain is very welcome as it encourages the fruit to develop further and prevents them from falling to the ground. In other words, the best time for planting is during the rainy season, unless the site has an irrigation system, which will allow the cultivation to take place at any time of the year.

It is possible to plant pink mango in both clayey and sandy soils. Land located in lowlands, which can be subject to waterlogging, as well as rocky places, should be avoided. The pink mango seedling should be grown 10 m apart.

With a hoe or a plow, a 20 cm deep pit should be dug and existing stones, stumps and clods removed, especially after 10 days. In the turned over land, 10 to 20 liters of manure from the corral, 1000 g of limestone, 500 g of simple superphosphate and 100 g of potassium chloride should be applied. After this step, mix the fertilizer with the soil and place a seedling over it, completing the hole with the rest of the mixture. This is true both for orchards and for gardens in residential areas.

It is important to manually remove the native vegetation that grows over time in the mango tree to avoid interfering with fruit development. In addition, the soil must be fluffed and irrigated frequently, and during the summer, watering must be daily. In general, the mango tree starts to bear fruit from the second year after the start of cultivation, which will yield great pink mangoes for consumption.
