Update on Mango fruit setting !

First flowering was noticed in Mid December with the decreasing rains. We saw decent flowering in the month of January as temperatures increased. It too another 2-3 weeks when pea sized fruits were noticed on some of the trees.

Typically, it takes about 120 - 130 days from fruit setting for the fruits to mature for harvest. With the current trends, we should be ready for harvest sometime in mid May.

We are excited about about our first harvest. It will be small since these trees a little over 3 years old. Nonetheless, it will be great to see our effort and labor turn into tangible results.

Stay tuned. More pictures will be posted soon!
