Choosing a Right Variety A dwarf mango tree grows up to 2 – 4 m. tall and can be tried in containers. There’re some specific dwarf varieties of the mango tree that you can grow in container— Irwin and Nam Doc Mai are best. Some other varieties you may try are King Thai, Carrie, Cogshall, Glenn, Neelam, and Palmer The Best Time for Planting The best time for planting mango tree is spring. However, in their native habitat like India, mangoes are planted before the beginning of the rainy season (July, August) or after the rainy season. Requirements for Growing Mango Trees in Containers Soil It needs light, well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter, of pH level around 5.5 – 7.5 (slightly acidic to neutral). Instead of using regular soil from the garden, use a high-quality potting mix.

best dating a dwarf mango trees - Palmer Dwarf Mango Tree
Mango, the country’s national fruit is considered as one of the finest in the world. It is the third most important fruit crop of the country based on export volume and value next to banana and pineapple. It has an established domestic market and has bright opportunities for the international market both in fresh or processed form. The country’s export variety, The “Carabao Mango” is one of the best varieties in the world. But in order to harvest enough quantities for commercial purposes, you need to have a large land area to plant the trees.
And as we are all aware of, mango trees are big and tall so the the harvesting will require labor cost that might not be feasible or might reduce our profit. And in addition to those disadvantages, harvesting is also time consuming and if we will use pesticides bigger trees will cost you more. So what is the solution then? we have to make trees smaller to reduce the overhead expenses.
The following is how you create a dwarf mango tree by the technique of LOW BARK GRAFTING AND PRUNING OF MANGO TREE. Mango like other tropical fruit trees is propagated by several methods: • Sexual –through seeds • Asexual- vegetative methods Propagation by seeds results to enormous variability in the progenies.
Therefore, asexual or vegetative methods are adopted to get true to type plants. The technique of cleft grafting of mango in the Philippines is very common using tall and overgrown rootstock ( 1 meter high).
Now, a new method of grafting is being introduce called LOW BARK GRAFTING AND PRUNING MAKES MANGO DWARF… ADVANTAGES OF DWARF MANGO 1. High number of trees per hectare –India-3m x 2.5 m(1,333 plants/ha) –Israel-3m x 5 m, 5 m x 8 m(200-600 plants/ ha) –Thailand-200-600 plants/ha –Australia-200-1000 plants/ha 3rd Mango Marketing Congress, August 15-16, 2006, Davao City 2. Easier management of trees: – Pruning – Pests and Disease Monitoring – Minimal losses of fruits – Minimal damage and bruises – Easier bagging and harvesting – Efficiency in spraying So if you wanted to learn how to graft the mango tree, here are steps in Low Bark Grafting: • Prepare a mango root stock, it’s a mango seedling having a stem big enough to be grafted as shown in the picture below.
• Decapitate or cut the stem leaving about 2 to 20 cm from the ground. Make a thin side cut in the bark so that you can insert the scion to graft it in. Take note that this is different from cleft grafting which is the most simplest kind of grafting where the cut is on the center of the stem. In bark grafting, only the bark should be cut to insert the scion. For more info with regards to grafting, follow this link => • Prepare the scion and cut the leaves.
Only the stem should be left. • Make a V-shape cut on the end of the scion stem. Insert the scion into the side cut of the rootstock. • Wrap the joint of the rootstock and the scion tightly using a plastic strip. • Decapitate the apex to induce branching. Pinch-off the growing point to induce branching. • After 30 days expose the plants to little sunlight for hardening.
There you have it. It looks simple enough but I think the waiting is the hardest part. But after the many months of waiting it to grow, it will look like the picture below. Maybe after six years it will bear fruit and ready for mango fruit production.

I want to grow a large ultra high density mango orchard in Florida, USA using cultivars from Pakistan. Is there a root-stock that is dwarf in its characteristics or the dwarfing happens only as a result of low grafting and/or pruning. 2. Can I induce flowering/fruiting within 2 years and every year?
Thank you. PAUL, IF YOUR MANGOES ARE PLANTED FROM SEEDS, THEY USSUALLY BEAR FRUITS FROM 10 TO 15 YEARS. YOU COULD LET THEM BEAR FRUITS WITHIN TWO YEARS BY TOP WORKING THEM WITH A CLEFT GRAFT OR ANY OTHER GRAFTING METHODS, WITH A CHOCANAN CULTIVARS FROM THAILAND. I HAVE TRIED THIS AT SISON, PANGASINAN AND IT WORKED. Hi. please help me this- Im planning to grow mangoes on my 2hectares lot in calaug quezon but locals from that place says that Mangoes is not good in that area- it grows but didnt bear fruits- sometimes I almost agree with them -I saw several mangoes tress 5 years or more not producing any fruits- MAy I know your opinion on this- Thanks in advance don Concessa: If your mango tree is standing alone and far from other trees or fence, prune the lower branch of the mango so the nasty squirrel could not jump from the ground to the branch, then try wrapping the trunk snug fit with a galvanized thin sheet metal from about a foot from the ground to about 36 inches upward.
The sheet metal is slippery, hopefully this would solve your problem. Pls let me if it works. Lito S lomahan I tried grafting roses in my garden in San Francisco, CA . I grafted 10 scions, only one was successful. I do not know what I did wrong. But my suspicion is that I have a bad scion. The successful one is going to have flowers, a small flower variety with five or more flowers in one stem. I do not know what kind of rose it is.
The rootstock bears bigger flowers one flower in one stem. I tried grafting a calamansi scion to a avocado and apple tree. Did not do any good. I suspect they are not compatible. Please give some input. Thanks Fred Mr. Ver Loquias: I saw your reply to Mr.
Kanti Patel that a Kent mango is availble at Davao. There are Kent mango fruits for sale here in Chicago, Illinois USA from Mexico. This mango is very delicious like the chocanan from Thailand. I am interested to obtain a scion from your orchard to graft or to top-work into my seedlings at Sison Pangasinan.
How could I contact you by Text. Internet is not available in the Barangay where I live. Ill be home a couple of months Sept. Lito Lomahan Dear Ms Shella: Dont despair. If the branches are pencil size you could TOP-WORK with a Cleft Graft with any good variety of Carabao Mango. If the branches are now too large i.e.,2 or more inches in diameter cut the branch with pruning saw,but leave a nursing branch to manufacture its food.
Wait for 6 t0 8 months for a new branch to sprout,leave 3to 4 branches by pinching off the rest. AS the new branch are pencil size then cleft graft. Try to find A Thai CHOCANAN cultivar that bear fruits in two (2) years. I have lots of Chocanan scion in Sison ,Pangasinan. There chocanan scion also available from Bernie Dizon at Magalang, Pampanga. I LIVE in Illinois,USA going to Sison by September .
If you want more info,pls email me. Lito S Lomahan sir, several years back we planted some grafted mango trees to our farm but unfortunately the grafted part dies and only the rootstock survived to become “manggang bisaya” as my mother would say..can we still graft that tree with the carabao mango variety or shall i just have it uprooted and plant a newly grafted seedling?
sayang po kasi yung puno…please help! yes u can do it again, first what you should know is try and protect it from sunlight for at least two weeks and also after you do it it will require much water, and the best time to do it is when the weather is a little warm or hot so that it will shoot in good time, i tried it last two weeks and they are all successful though i am in west Africa.
it is now raining but is our best time now. Hi, I am from North India. I tried two time to get a bark grafted mango plant. Both time I got failed. I don’t understand the reason. I tried to do the things same as mentioned the tutorial. Some where I did mistake that I am not able to find. Please suggest some good suggestion to get success.
One more thing – can you suggest in which month I can try it in North India? Thanks in advance, Vinit VEER, I have tried low bark grafting with 10 pencil sized seedlings,but only 2 survived. Tried to graft higher 10 seedlings and 8 out of 10 grafts survived,80 %.FOUND out that leaving 2to3 leaves below the graft helps the plant to nourish the graft and more chance of survival.
I ALSO TOP-WORKED A TWO YEAR OLD PLANT. An Indian mango root-stock with a Chocanan(Thailand mango) scion and it bore 5fruits in two years with about 500grms each fruit. THIS happened in Sison, Pangasinan PI. I have around 1500 5to6-yr old doubled root-stock grafted in Sison n Pozorrubio,Pangasinan,mixed varieties of Chocanan ,Guimaras, Sweet Elena, Golden Queen,and Lamao.CHOCANAN BEARS fruit after two years.
I AM am a mango grower, my advise to the mango stakeholders, concentrate more on the production, on how to have an abundant harvest and how to control pest and diseases, these know how will determine the outcome if you are a succesful mango grower, if your attending seminars insist on the lecturer to discuss more on the mango production, like when to induce the trees, what chemicals to use and other concern relative to fruit development.
for that is the reason why you plant the tree to have an abundant harvest and make money… Hi, leave in UP faizabad have 20 mango trees,12 gouva tree ,im also intrested in lemon have 15 on grafted plant .but they are not grow as i think but ,i dont know also how to care them i have no idea to mentain them but im very intrested in plantation .I have also meny typr flower but also i am unable to taking care my rose plant any how…….
Please sujest me how to maintain these plant and update regarding plantation … i will be very thank full to you. Hello Mr Patel. Your name is very common in India. Haden and kent are famous in Florida. We have also planted haden and kent here in Davao City, Mindanao, Philippines. We have also the heaviest mango in the World which is planted in Iligan city, Lanao del Norte.
This is already registered in Book of Guiness. VEER LOQUIAS I am looking for 10 mango trees for my yard. I am looking for haden or kent mango trees. If 3 gallon plant also ok for me.
Please let me know where I can get it? and how much cost for each plant?diwata zamasta (texas)has 5 ft. trees in a pot in a farm?
is this a rootstock or dwarf mango trees. send me a email. Please. Putting covers after grafting is a standard practice especially during rainy season.Covering in any form or material will protect the graft union from absorbing water which cause its death of the grafts. Grafting on big trees can also be done but you need to use rubber bands for tying the union for better and faster callus or approach.If tying is loose, then grafts will die.
The size of the scion can be pencil size for small 6-12 months old rootstocks using the cleft grafting method and for bigger rootstocks you can adopt low bark grafting. Well, if they are already planted on the ground, can we try covering them to protect from direct sunlight until they recover?
Much like putting a tent over the newly grafted tree. I think Bernie Dizon did this in Mr. Capulong’s orchard. He more or less made a Batangas tree into a chokonan(?) tree. Is pencil like diameter is good for grafting, is there such a thing as too big to graft?
Can we do this on a branch instead of directly on the trunk? nagtanim po ako ng 30 ka puno na manga pero di ko alam kung anu ang susunod kung gagawin para maganda ung laki ng mga manga ko, mainit kasi ngaun sa dating palayan ko sya tananim diniligan ko tuwing hapon kalahati ng balde ang dinidilig ko tama ba ung ginawa, magpaturo ako kung kaylan ko sya lalagyan ng fertilizer at anung klasing fertilizer.
Maraming salamat Dear Basher; Just contact me in this adress. I have visited India twice in Gujarat and Marahastra. The variety of mango famous in the locality is the Alphonso and Kesar.This varieites are good in quality. I was there to visit the growers of Desai Fruits and Vegetables and Cold Storage in Navsari, Gujarat.That was in the year 2005 and 2006. If you have some inquiries just send your questions.
Thank you and more power. VIRGILIO L. LOQUIAS Lei, Lito Lomahan, LOlamarge Fruit Nursery in Mintal, Davao City(Davao-Bukidnon Road are selling Low-bark grafted plants.Chokanan and Guimaras variety are also available.
Potassium Nitrate can be used as foliar spray for flower induction at the rate of 2-3 percent.Chicken dung or Vermicast can be used as organic fertilizer.
VEER Mr. V. Loquias; What kind of insecticide/fungicide to use in grafting mangoes? I have a 5-year old mango from seed and I want it to bear fruit in two years time. Where could I get a Chocanan from Thailand and Guimaras scion. I also heard that there is a mixture of fertilizer that makes a fruit very sweet.Is this a proprietary mixture? I tasted one in Sison ,Pangasinan and it is really very…very sweet.Lito Lomahan i’m from davao city and very much interested in dwarf fruit trees really fascinated with dwarf mango trees and any other dwarf fruit trees available in the market but i dont where to buy them could you please tell me if they’re available here in davao city or from any provinces nearby hope you could help me find them.thanks so much
Wurtz, Holiday, Hazzard, Gwen, Whitsell. My Sharwil WAS of moderate vigor and dwarfish. Am keeping my Reed down to 10' with about 2 toppings per year. Funny as it bears very low, never above 3'.
Pickering and Mallika mangos have been very dwarfish for me. Am shortening the internodes on my Lemon Zest and Sweet Tart via Bonzi (a PGR) apps and severe topping right after planting. Lemon Zest has responded really well and it's super vigorous. Topped it down to a stick this spring, right above the first node. Nov. 16, 2016 BTW, might wanna use the search feature. We had 10 pages of discussions on this topic. As recommended to me by Rob, not for being dwarfs but being less vigorous and more size manageable, we have Fairchild, Pickering, and Honey Kiss as or keep em smaller trees.
So far so good. Huge difference in vigor compared to our PPK and CC trees. But have kept those under 10 ft CC is almost 4 years old and PPK is coming on 5 years and has not been difficult to maintain but have done much heavier pruning than pickering and Fairchild. Were you a hall monitor in elementary school? I'll mention whatever I feel is the best approach to keeping a tropical tree dwarfed.
Sorry Rob but there is life after Florida......suffer. Paclobutrazol aka Bonzi has been used forever in India in mango orchards --> Application rates etc. Having said that Pickering is a true dwarf. Mark Pickering is an outstanding tasting mango........I planted a Glen at my old house about 5-6 years ago and only got 2 fruits last year......I pruned the living daylights out of that thing to keep it small and I'm figuring that's why it didn't bear hardly any fruit.....I drove by my old house the other day and that tree is blooming like crazy....I didn't prune it last summer knowing I was going to move....the tree is now 10 feet tall or more....I'm gonna go back and ask the new owner if I can take any fruit that bears this year Dwarf?
My 4-year-old Pickering is more of a midget. Took the picture minutes ago. The tree behind it is a 2-year-old Maha, which is also flowering but not as profusely as the Pickering. Like Zands says, not to hijack the thread, but compact avocado suggestions would be welcome (in another thread, of course). I have a Day, a Wurtz and a Lula, and they are doing well in raised beds.
