Mango 'Valencia Pride' (Mangifera indica)
Valencia Pride Mango is a mid-late season variety and very reliable producer. It originated in South Florida in the early 1940's and is a decedent of the Haden Mango. Valencia Pride's fruit is juicy, sweet, and delicious. It has a very aromatic tropical flavor and smooth creamy almost fiber-less consistency! The shape of mango fruit can differ by variety and the Valencia Pride has a more oblong shape than others and weighs in at about 1-2 pounds per fruit! Valencia Pride trees reach mature heights of about 20-30 feet tall with a canopy spread of about 10-15 feet.
Mango trees are perfect to plant in the subtropical to tropical home landscape. The glossy evergreen foliage of mango trees makes for a beautiful, shady canopy that requires little upkeep. Pick, peel, and eat mangoes freshly off the tree! How can you tell when a mango fruit is ready to harvest? Your nose will know! You should be able to smell a sweet, piney aroma from mango fruit before plucking it off the tree.
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.
