Leaves are a deep red. Seems like the Glenns have more color than the other types.

WHAT!

You've got to be joking!X!X!X???

Sounds like you've got quite a history with them and some
acreage too! Really.....116 trees?

Well that would make you the southwest desert mango expert....Have
any more pictures of the mango gang? What's your favorite and what grows best in our harsh climate?

Just 1/5 acre. All but a few are in pots. Far from an expert, Im still an amatuer learning what we can do here in PHX. Ive found that they like to dry out a bit between waterings, use peat moss in the potting soil, and dont baby. The newly grafted stuff like a moist soil. They seem to do better starting in a 1, then 3, then 7, then 15. As opposed to 1, 5, 15. So far I like Kent the best. Summer no prob, winter I move onto the east patio. Im going to try a few in the greenhouse this year to see the different growth in those that get the humidity. So far have been real easy trees. I know enough to ask questions of others to get experiences bad and good. I also like to hand water.
