Traditionally, mangos are commercially grown in tropical areas. They adapt successfully in higher-lying areas and can tolerate various climatic conditions. Mango trees cannot tolerate harsh winds. They have a deep tap-root system (up to 6 metres) and many feeding roots are closer to the surface. They are evergreen trees and new leaves form in flushes 2 or 3 times a year.
The cultivar ‘Tommy Atkins’ is one of the most popular as it produces abundant well-sized and -coloured fruits and is disease-resistant.
