Mangos Your 1st Year - Not 8th!

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.

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.

First season with Mango trees - looking good but will they bear fruit?
The mango trees are growing well. They seem very healthy. A local nursery said they had never heard of a mango bearing fruit in our area - Fremont CA. Can you confirm that the trees will not only grow but can bear fruit in our growing area? Do they need a special micro climate or soil & fertilizer to bear fruit? How soon should they bear fruit?

Happy with the mango
I have to say that since I've only had my new mango tree for a couple of months, so far I love it. It has over eight inches of new growth and is doing wonderful. No fruit yet, but I'm not worried about it.
Now, on to my review of fast-growing-trees. I must say at first I was skeptical, my tree arrived late due to a horrible snow storm on the East Coast -- but it was held up by the postal service, not fast-growing-trees -- and when it arrived it looked half dead. I took a picture and sent it in and they assured me it was alive. Every week I sent them appraisals as I slowly watched the poor thing die. The company stayed with me, making suggestions along the way and when finally, a couple months later, and no denying that the tree had died, they sent me a new one. When the new tree put on a growth spurt and all the leaves were a brownish red, again I worried, thinking I wasn't doing something right or the tree was lacking certain nutrients. I contacted fast-growing-trees and within twenty-four hours they contacted me back and let me know that it was normal and that the leaves would turn green as they matured. Since then, they've done that and the tree continues to flourish. They let me know that I will have to protect my tree in my growing zone during the winter and I will be bringing it indoors. I can't speak highly enough about this company. I will definitely buy from them again.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Glenn Mango Tree


Glenn Mango Tree Planting Diretions

Growing Your Mango in a Container:

When You Receive your Mango –
Your Mango will arrive in container, 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 when it was young 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.

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 mango classified as a hardwood or softwood tree?
Brian M on Feb 29, 2016
Best Answer: I believe mango trees are considered hardwood. When I used to make pens, I bought a small piece of mango splint. It has consistencies of bamboo, but not as hard as bamboo. The wood is easy on your tools too. I loved working with it, however, I could not get the proper shine that I needed in order to get the grade of finish I needed for my pens. There was more sap than I expected. Hope this helps for your project. My tree that I got from here died last year though. I got too busy and forgot to bring it in after the first frost.

Is this stock from GMO seed?
Jesse C on Oct 9, 2015
Best Answer: I cannot answer this question because the biggest modifier in nature is nature. My experience with the glenn mango is that it was mango that we found in Hawaii, probably an offshoot of the many plants that grow wild in the tropics. I don't know what your experience with so called GMO is but my experience was with the USDA which I worked for back in the 1950es. They had to keep developing new varieties of wheat at various Universities just to stay ahead of the natural fungus (Wheat rust) so that we could keep this marvelous grain as a food. Nature produces genetically changing fungi, which attacks our food products continually and I am sure you can remember what happened with the potato fungi that destroyed this crop in Ireland.

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: I assume that you purchased the tree which was probably grafted.
as long as the shoots come above the graft any shoot that comes out will be fine to produce fruit. You probably can cut the shoots and and get them to produce individually. Use a rooting hormone to induce rooting of cuttings. Use sand or perlite as a rooting medium. I usually root stuff in a pot like a 5 " pot with one inch of potting soil in the bottom and 4"es of perlite on top to root cuttings. This seems to guard against rotting of the cuttings before they sprout roots. Keep the material damp but not wet maybe once a week until the top of the cutting puts our leaves. May take a month or more

I live in Venice, Florida 34293 and would like to plant a mango tree in my backyard, when I planted my avocado tree I put 2 bags of compost in the hole before I planted it, would this work for the Mango tree also, and what type of fertilizer is recommended, the numbers on the fertilizer bag?

Best Answer: The Glenn mango is one of the best ,sweetist, small seed mango trees on the market. I cannot tell you what or how to plant this tree only that we have a neighbor who has one and he shares his fruit with us. I planted one of these and it died,it froze.
My neighbor who lives on a hill and is frost free does fine, he has a fairly dense clay soil which drains well. My only experience with mangos was in Hawaii where we had a very large tree and many fruit which were wonderful. This was at Lahaina, Maui. The fruit from this tree was great but quite fiberous. My experience from my neighbors fruit is that the fruit has little or no fibers around the seed, very sweet, flaverous and as the picture tells you the fruit comes in clusters, medium apple size. Any well drained soil should be fine

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 live in Birmingham, AL. Is it too late to buy and plant in the ground?
Lewis H on Aug 19, 2015
Best Answer: I would not recommend planting these in the ground in your area. The winters are a bit cold for this mango. A lot of customers grow this tree in a pot so it can be taken in during the colder months.

My tree has beautiful blooms but they fall off and I don't get any fruit, what do I need to do?
Barney H on Mar 28, 2015
Best Answer: It could be they need fertilizer. Dont use chemical fertilizers! Mangos are easily burnt by fertilizers high in ammonium nitrate. The best fertilizer is a natural, organic one with mycorrhizal fungi and beneficial bacteria. If you want to know a little gardening secret that the Indians used to do that works wonders on mangos, bury a fish touching the roots of your plant. The fish contains lots of nutrient crucial to a mango in its first years.
