Your own Compact Mango Fruit Factory. Glenn is an abundant producer in pots or in the ground. It quickly grows to a manageable size. 20  feet when planted outdoors, or you can keep it indoors at 4 to 8 ft.

Glenn Mango can easily be grown anywhere in the Country. It reportedly tolerates brief temperatures down to 26F, once established. In colder areas, you can bring it indoors for the winter. You'll feel like you're in the tropics.

Glenn Mango is the best for home growing. It produces a compact, round canopy and is disease resistant. The fruit is sweet, delicious and not as fiberous as most mango varieties. You should see about 2 to 3 feet of new growth each year.  It will limit its growth by the size of its container.

This exotic tree has vibrant green leaves and an aromatic scent that will enhance any outdoor or indoor space. It adapts to most soil types and thrives in full to partial sunlight. The Glenn Mango is self-pollinating, which means it will produce fruit all by itself.

Your delicious mangos are oval with a rounded base, and will develop an orange-red color as they ripen in the sun. They are medium to large in size. Beneath their skin lies a sweet, rich flesh that is great for biting into or adding to deserts, salads or savory chutneys. Your mangos will be ready for harvesting in late June to July.

Don't Wait 8 Years for Fruit! Our Glenn Mango will typically produce fruit your first year. Seed grown Mango Trees can take 6-8 years.

We graft our trees, just like most commercial fruit growers. Basically, we take a cutting from a tree proven to make sweet, delicious Glenn Mangos. We graft that on to a Mango root stock variety... proven to be disease and insect resistant. Grafting is a natural process that has been around for hundreds of years. It's time consuming and can add a year or more to our growing schedule. This is why many nurseries don't do it.

The benefits for you are huge. You get a tree that fruits years sooner, because your tree thinks it's mature. And you get a hardier tree, that will produce better tasting fruit for decades to come. 

You can save thousands of dollars over the life of your tree. Plus you can feel better knowing that your mangoes are non-GMO and can easily be grown organically. Order yours today.

It's Easy to Plant your Glenn Mango Tree

Specific Directions for Glenn Mango Tree

Growing Your Mango in a Container:

When You Receive your Mango –
Your Mango will arrive in a 3-gallon pot, ready to be potted up to a larger size for the first growing season. After repotting, you will need to acclimate your plant to being outside all day. Place it in a shady spot with for the first couple of days, then gradually give it more sun each day until after a week, you move it to its permanent spot in full sun for the summer. When picking that permanent spot, keep in mind that they love heat and sun!

Transplanting to a Larger Pot
As your tree grows, it will need to be moved to a large pot every 2 or 3 years, until it maxes out to around a 30-gallon pot. Your tree comes in a 3-gallon/10” pot, and you can step it up gradually as follows:
3 gallon/ 10” pot
7 gallon/ 14” pot
15 gallon/ 17” pot
25 gallon/ 24” pot
Etcetera

Re-potting Your Mango

  1. You will need a good, fast-draining gritty soil mix. You can make your own, using equal parts Pine Bark Fines, Turface and granite grit (or perlite). You can also use a commercially prepared mix like Jungle Growth or Miracle Grow Moisture Control potting soil. You can add a small amount of slow-release fertilizer to the mix.
  2. Many recommend using a clay pot because it breathes better than plastic, but you may also use a plastic pot, if it has plenty of holes in the bottom for drainage. Use one a size larger than your current pot size, as shown above.
  3. You might want to place the pot on castors before you fill it, to make moving it easier.
  4. Line the bottom with loose stones, and make sure there are several drainage holes. Add potting mix to half-way full, wetting it as you go.
  5. Remove the plant carefully from the pot, keeping the root ball intact. Do not pull it out by the trunk, as this may damage the tap root. If roots are starting to circle around the outside where they met the pot, gently loosen the ends to encourage them to grow out into the new soil.
  6. Hold the plant in the middle of the pot (or get a friend to help!) and fill in around it with potting mix so the top of the soil around the base of the tree is still visible. Burying the tree too deeply can cause the trunk to rot.
  7. Gently firm the soil and water until water drains out the bottom of the pot. I f you wish, you can apply a couple of inches of organic mulch to the top of the soil, though it should be several inches from the trunk, not touching it.
  8. After 6 weeks, begin fertilizing as shown below.  You can use a slow release fertilizer (18-6-8 or similar analysis) available at your local garden center, or an organic fertilizer if you prefer.

Watering Your Container
A general rule of thumb is the smaller the pot, the more frequently it will need watering. Also, you will need to take any rainfall into consideration in your watering schedule. That being said, you should water your pot every 2 or 3 days in the summer, and cut back to once every week or two in the winter. The goal is to keep the potting mix moist, but not wet, and to let the top couple of inches dry out before watering again. Your container should have several drainage holes and when you re-pot, you can place pebbles or shards in the bottom of the pot to help give good drainage.

Feeding Your Potted Mango
A plant growing in a container does not have access to nutrients in the ground, so you will need to feed it keep it nourished. There are a lot of differing opinions about the best way to feed your Mango, but it is generally accepted that nitrogen should be given sparingly if at all, as it will impede fruit production in favor of foliage; however, if you need to encourage flowering, you can apply a small dose of a rapid-release fertilizer just before flowering.

For the rest of the year, If you use a commercial fertilizer, use one with low nitrogen, such as a slow release 18-6-8; you can apply it in a slow-release form in spring and midsummer. Many recommend using an organic fertilizer like fish emulsion, and applying a mulch to the soil surface, but not touching the trunk itself.

Feed only when the tree is in active growth, and leave off in the winter. In the summer while the tree is active, you can also apply a foliar spray with micro-nutrients that include magnesium, zinc and manganese; chelated Iron might be needed, also. This may sound like a lot of trouble, but when you are eating those luscious Mangoes, you will be glad you took the time to grow your tree correctly!

Pruning is Important – and It’s Not Hard!
Your tree has already had a several prunings to get it started right, including tip pruning the terminal bud to encourage lateral growth. However, it will need regular pruning its whole life to keep it a manageable size and to promote fruiting. This is not a difficult or exacting process, so don’t panic!

  1. A major key to pruning a Mango is tip pruning the new shoots when they reach about 20 inches. You should do this several times the first growing season you have it, and 2 to 3 times during the next couple of growing seasons. After that, you will need to tip prune every year after fruiting in midsummer. You don’t have to be selective, but simply cut off the growing tips of all the branches. Branches in the center of the tree that are growing upright should be cut back farther than branches growing horizontally on the sides of the tree. After 4-5 years, the tree should be about 6-8 feet tall and wide in a pot, and the goal is to keep it that way for its lifetime.
  2. When the tree is 5 years old, you should start removing altogether the thick, woody branches growing upright in the middle of the tree; a small hand saw should suffice. Hold the branch upright until the cut is complete so the end is not splintered and torn. Leave the smaller branches in the tree center; the goal is not to make a vase-shaped tree, but to open up the center of the tree to air and sun, as well as to remove thick, woody growth that saps energy from the smaller fruit-producing branches.
  3. Prune annually after harvesting in midsummer.

Bringing Your Mango Indoors for the Winter
Mangoes are not hardy, and can be damaged when temperatures go below 40⁰ Fahrenheit. In fall, when night temperatures get in the 40’s, go ahead and bring in your plant. You need a sunny place to put it – the more light the better – so a south-facing bank of windows would be good, or if you have a heated greenhouse, that would be even better. Cut back watering to once every week or two, and stop fertilizing. Moving your pot is easier if you have a dolly or if your pot sits on a platform with castors. It will make the change easier on your plant if you continue to put it outside in the middle of the day for several days until leaving it permanently inside for the winter, though this may not be practical once your plant gets large.

Pollination on an Indoor Plant
Though your Mango is self-pollinating, pollen is usually transferred by insects of the wind; your Mango will flower in March and April, probably before you can bring it outside. To help make sure there are plenty of fruits, you can try shaking the tree to disperse pollen or use a paint brush to gently transfer pollen from one flower to another.

Growing Your Mango in the Ground

Where to Plant
Mangoes like a lot of sun and a lot of heat, so bear this in mind when selecting a spot. Think what would be the warmest part of your yard during the winter months and that will probably be the best suited location for your Mango tree; this is often on the south or east side of your house.
Mangoes also require good drainage.

You will need at least 8 to 10 feet of space to accommodate your tree’s width. Its roots are not prone to damage pavement or pipes outside its drip line, so you can plant 8 to 10 feet from pavement or a pipeline, or 12 feet from a structure.

Soil
The Mango is not particular as to soil type, providing it has good drainage. If soil is too rich and too well fertilized, the tree will grow quickly, but be reluctant to flower and fruit. It likes loose, sandy soil and performs well in sand, gravel and even oolitic limestone. If you have heavy, wet clay soil, you will need to amend it substantially with substances like decomposed leaves, grit, and fine bark and sand. If you have a high water table, or wet soil, you may want to create a raised bed for your Mango.

Planting

  1. Make your hole 2 to 3 times as wide and twice as deep as the container. Amend your soil if needed. Fill in the bottom of your hole with the removed soil so when you place the container on it, the top of the container is at ground level; planting too deep can rot the trunk, so the top of the soil around the base of the tree in the pot should still be visible after planting in the ground. Do not add fertilizer to your soil.
  2. Remove the plant gently from the container, keeping the root ball intact. You may cut the sides of the nursery pot to make removing the plant easier, if needed. If the roots are starting to grow around the edges of the pot, gently loosen them so they will be more inclined to grow out into the new soil. However, take care not to damage the tap root.
  3. Hold the plant in place and back fill your hole around it. Be sure the top of the soil around the base of the tree is still visible when you’re done. Use any extra soil to make a small 3-4” berm in a circle 2 feet from the tree trunk, which will help hold water near the roots for the first few waterings.
  4. Gently firm the soil and mulch with 2 to 3 inches of organic material to buffer soil temperature, conserve moisture and reduce weed competition. Water in your plant.
  5. Apply 2-3 inches of organic mulch around the base of the tree to a distance of 3 feet. Leave at least 6 inches from the trunk with no mulch touching the tree. Organic mulch will supply nitrogen as it decomposes, suppresses weeds, retains moisture and helps prevent damage from string trimmers.

Watering
The first 10 days after planting, water every other day, then gradually reduce frequency so that after 6 weeks you are watering twice a week in the summer while the plant is in active growth. Simply fill your ring (see #3 under Planting, above) with water and let it soak in. The ring will disappear by the end of summer. If you have rain, of course, you can reduce your watering. In the winter, your Mango will need very little watering: once every couple of weeks should suffice, unless you have enough rain to fill the tree’s needs.
           
The Mango needs consistently moist (but not wet) soil if it is to produce high-quality fruit, so it should receive water regularly during spring and early summer, whether from rain or from your hose. Once the tree is established (2 years after planting), a weekly soaking should be plenty during the growing season, whether from rain or from your hose. You probably will not need to water in winter unless there is a prolonged drought.

Feeding Your Mango
Your Mango will benefit form a regular fertilizer schedule, but it does not need to be fed in great amounts. In fact, over-fertilization is worse than under-fertilization! Organic fertilizers such as fish emulsion, liquid seaweed or compost are often recommended, as the tree is subject to fertilizer burn, especially when young. Micro-nutrients that include magnesium, zinc and manganese and chelated Iron are important for a healthy Mango, so if your soil is sandy or lacking in these, you may use a foliar spray to supply these nutrients.

  1. 6 weeks after planting you may apply fertilizer, either an organic one or a low dose of a slow release, low analysis fertilizer that contains low levels of nutrients, though some recommend staying away from chemical fertilizers until a couple of years after the tree is planted out. Apply at the drip line and irrigate immediately.
  2. In subsequent years, apply either an organic fertilizer or a slow-release, low level  formula chemical fertilizer (such as 6-6-6 or 8-3-9-2, with the 2 indicating magnesium) in spring just before flowering and in summer after harvest. Apply at the drip line and irrigate immediately. Additionally, apply a foliar spray of micro-nutrients that include magnesium, zinc and manganese as well as chelated iron in early summer and again in late summer.
  3. Do not fertilize after during the fall and winter.

Your tree has already had a couple of prunings to get it started right, including tip pruning the terminal bud to encourage lateral growth. However, it will need regular pruning its whole life to keep it a manageable size and to promote fruiting. This is not a difficult or exacting process, so don’t panic!

  3. After the first year or two, prune annually after harvesting in midsummer.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Glenn Mango Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Glenn Mango Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Glenn Mango Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

I purchased my tree in May 2014 and left it in its original container sitting in the backyard patio in Southern California. In March 2015, less than a year later, it flowered and produced 8 baby mangoes. I can't wait until they ripen. I'm looking forward to some good eating.

Glenn Mango Tree Died
Unfortunately my Glenn Mango tree died shortly after arriving here. I called customer service and submitted pictures of the dead little tree. Lucky for me I had purchased their warranty and I had no problem receiving a store credit. I am waiting for cooler temperatures to re-purchase the Glenn Mango tree.

Great Service
I was a little nervous about trying to grow a tropical tree in the southeast, and had a little trouble with the local bugs. But when I emailed customer service with photos of my plants and explained I am growing organically, they told me exactly what I needed to fix my problem.

I have not yet taken my trees through the first winter, so I can't speak to winter hardiness as yet. I grow my trees in containers so I can bring them indoors during winter months.

My trees are now thriving and doing great. I would recommend Fast Growing Trees to others, and I will be buying from them again in the future.

Be carefull
This tree is shipped at about three feet in height and is very well along in growth. However I did not desire to plant it right away because of the weather and also deciding where. So I kept it watered a put it in a good location still in the pot it shipped in for about 2 months. I noticed it never changed in all that time. No growth of any kind. I found out why when I finally planted it. There was no root ball at all and the sawdust it was planted in fell off and left me with the stringy bare roots. As soon as I planted it all but 4 of the leaves fell off and I will be surprised if it survives. There has been no growth in the 2 weeks it's been in the ground. Fast growing trees?Really!????

The second one arrived looking weak with leaves pointing down. I didn't call this time because I thought it would recover. It didn't recover, only kept getting worse. finally the Glenn mango tree dried up. Bought expensive twigs. Gave up, sorry.

I really can't say much just yet, the tree is young and is kind of putting out a new flush of leaves.

A shopper on Aug 13, 2014
Best Answer: Unfortunately Florida has agricultural laws put in place that legally prevents us from shipping Glenn Mango Trees there.

Hello,

I live in Austin, Texas. Ground is rocky Texas Hill Country, and in winter, we have a couple of freezes. I really wanted a Magoe tree for my backyard.
Do you think that Glenn Mangoe will survive Texas cold?
What would be best time to plant it outdoors?

Thanks,
Umar
Umar S on Nov 22, 2014
Best Answer: Enter your zip code in the link below to make sure your in zone 9. Zone 8 will be too cold for this tree and it will need to be planted in a container and brought indoors during the winter.

Can I get instructions on how to care for the Glenn Mango tree?
Carlos H on Sep 27, 2014
Best Answer: Place your Glenn Mango Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Glenn Mango Trees can tolerate shade but prefer full sun. If kept indoors place your Glenn Mango Tree by a large sunny window.

Glenn Mango Trees will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Keep your soil moist, not over saturated. Water your Glenn Mango Tree when your soil feels slightly damp to the touch, and every other week in the Summer.

Fertilize your Glenn Mango Tree early every Spring and Fall with a fertilizer that's high in nitrogen. Small flowers will emerge on your tree around March. Once your flowers have been pollinated and your fruit begins to grow they will be ready to be harvested around June or July when their skin turns a bright yellow color.

Is the Glenn Mango tree self pollinating?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2014
Best Answer: The Glenn Mango Tree is self pollinating. However the fruit yield will be much higher if it had a mate to pollinate with.

I plan to plant this mango tree in the ground. How do you protect it from the california winter?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2014
Best Answer: To protect your Glenn Mango Tree from winter conditions cover your tree with a sheet or a towel at night to protect it from frost. Also spread mulch, hay or pine straw around the roots to keep the heat in.

how to protect my mangoes from birds before they are ready to be picked?
lita c on Jun 12, 2015
Best Answer: There is no sure way to completely protect ripe fruit from being eaten by birds, outside of building a house around it. Like I am growing my tree in a greenhouse.
HOME DEPOT HAS NETTING which will cover most trees with some effort up to 15 feet. Another point, the sugar content in most fruit is reached just before they are really ripe, so pick them a little early and let them ripen in the house, because ripening is a process of converting starch to a simple sugar which can occur after they are harvested. Share some with the birds.

What is the best time to plant a mango tree?
Gloria M on Jul 14, 2014
Best Answer: It's best to plant Glenn Mango Trees in the early Spring or late Fall. If temperatures aren't scorching hot, in the 90's or above you can plant now.

I can plant in PA 19115. How can i keep in winter time?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
Best Answer: Since the Mango is a tropical plant you would want to keep it in a container so when the weather gets cold you can transport it indoors.

My tree has sprouted three shoots and has killed the main tree. Can I cut the shoots and get the shoots to grow separately of each other? If so, how do I go about this? We love our tree and don't want it to die.
Catherine M on Jul 29, 2015
Best Answer: My lime tree behaved similarly. If it is still within the warranty timeframe (that you hopefully purchased when you bought it), they will replace it. Otherwise, you are pretty much SOL. They might let you pay 3/4 of the cost of the original tree if you are lucky. But if you are trying to save the tree, I would google some gardening forums for advice. They were very unhelpful with mine, basically just putting off my claim until it was out of the warranty period. So if the warranty is still active, I STRONGLY suggest you get the replacement BEFORE it is over.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most dormant trees shipped in the
late fall through spring arrive bare root

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
