Mango 'Glenn' (Mangifera indica)
Glenn Mangoes have quite the reputation for excellent production and flavor. The fiberless fruits ripen quickly and dependably from late May to June, making them an early season producer to warm the groves up for the rest of the mango season.
Native to Miami, the small to medium Glenn Mango tree was first born from a seedling of the Hayden variety and grows a dense canopy with up to 20 ft. in height. The Glenn’s pleasant yellow fruits ripen with an orange-to-red blush and are considered a favorite among many mango enthusiasts. Pick them when their green skin begins to blush and let it ripen the rest of the way from the kitchen!
Tropical / Subtropical Evergreen Fruit Tree
Late-Spring to Late-Summer, depending on variety
In the early spring, Mangifera indica blossoms with clusters of flower spikes, and fruits mature over a matter of months, giving way to delicious juicy oblong fruits just in time for summer.
The mature size of a mango tree really depends on the variety of mango. Dwarf Mango varieties (aka condo mangoes like our Pickering Mango) can be dwarfed in planters and max out at around 6-10 feet, whereas some mango varieties reach upwards of 20-40 ft tall. A mango tree's canopy spread will be almost as wide as the height of the tree.
Soil & Moisture:
Mango trees prefer neutral to slightly acidic soil that is well-draining, rocky, sandy, high, and dry. It requires moderate moisture throughout the year with more watering throughout flowering and fruiting season and less during the winter. Mango trees will generally grow well in many soil types as long as there is good drainage.
Outdoors 9-11 (with frost protection until established); Patio/Greenhouse 4+
There is some slight variation of cold tolerance depending on variety. Dwarf varieties of mango trees are really well-suited for containers and can easily be brought indoors during the winter.
