Heidi Mango Tree

R275.00

Mangifera indica

This medium- to large-sized late season fruiting mango has a distinctive heart shape and is deliciously sweet. It is perfect as a summer snack or in smoothies. It grows well in South Africa, and is often grown in the Western Cape.

When planting in a cold climate it will be necessary to protect with frost cover during the winter.

Mangoes offer great fibre and protein. They also have calcium, phosphorous, ascorbic acid, iron, tryptophan, and vitamins A, B1, B2 and B3.

Watering

Water your Heidi mango tree every two to three days in the summer and every two to three weeks in the winter (if at all). When you first plant your young tree, you may need to water it a little more frequently for a few weeks. This helps to establish it and prevent the root ball from drying out.

Fertilising

Just before flowering, use a rapid-release nitrogen fertilizer to boost the health and abundance of fruit and flowers/dig in some aged manure if available. Use our slow-release nitrogen-rich all plant fertiliser Apply 1 teaspoon every 4-5 months. The roots will absorb what they required.

Pruning

Remove dead and diseased branches to give your mango tree the best conditions under which to produce the healthiest fruit. For the best results, prune your tree to have only three or four main branches and plenty of space in the canopy.

Fertilising

Just before flowering, use a rapid-release nitrogen fertilizer to boost the health and abundance of fruit and flowers. However, using too much fertiliser will give you an abundance of flowers and no fruit.

Our high nitrogen slow-release all plant fertiliser works well with all plants and trees. 1 teaspoon every 4-5 months.

Harvesting

Pick your juicy fruit about 4 or 5 months after the tree has flowered.
