Mangos require a frost-free climate above 40° F and good air circulation. Plant in full sun and provide good moisture. The mango must have warm, dry weather away from humidity to set fruit. Mangos will grow in almost any well-drained soil whether sandy, loam or clay, but avoid heavy, wet soils. They need deep soil to accommodate their extensive root systems. Prune mangoes in late winter to control the size of the tree. Mango sap can be irritating, always wear gloves. The mango is the apple (or peach) of the tropics, and one of the most commonly eaten fruits in tropical countries around the world. Mango trees make handsome landscape specimens and shade trees. The fruits grow at the end of a long, stringlike stem, with sometimes two or more fruits to a stem. Mango trees tend to be alternate bearing and can live up to 300 years.
