Glenn Mango Tree

The densely foliated canopies of Glenn Mango Trees are reminiscent of sprawling fruit orchards in southern Florida–full and colorful, with a gentle sway. Even so, these trees can be easily grown anywhere in the country!
Did you know that Mango trees are self-pollinating? This means they produce fruit on their own without the benefit of having other trees nearby. For this reason, Glenn Mango Trees do quite well on their own whether outdoors or in a pot near your sunniest south-facing window. That said, you’ll be delighted by the effect planting additional trees nearby will yield! Doing so attracts pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and other insects, thus increasing fertilization and an abundance of sweet, delicious fruit every June and July.
Harvesting your Glenn Mangos is a fun and rewarding experience. All you have to do is wait until your Mangoes are fully grown–baring a slightly firm consistency and a green to yellowish-orange color–then you simply pull the fruit. You’ll notice the stem snaps easily and you don’t need any fancy tools to get the job done.
If you’re looking for a soft, rounded tree to add to your landscaping, you should consider the Glenn Mango Tree. These trees have an exotic look and diffuse a subtle, sweet smell. These unique characteristics make them an excellent choice for outdoor spaces that include a hint of tropical or Mediterranean aesthetic.
How tall and wide do Glenn Mango Trees grow?
These trees can grow up to 30 feet tall if they remain unpruned and are grown in the ground. Indoor or potted Glenn Mango Trees grow to 10 feet tall, on average. Their width stays at an average of 8-10 feet.
Do Glenn Mango Trees require full sun?
Glenn Mango saplings enjoy the bright sunshine, but not all day direct sunlight. As your tree matures, it will not only withstand but thrive in as much sunlight as possible. You can think of it this way–more sun equals more flavorful fruit! If you are growing your Mango tree indoors, you can take advantage of the sunshine during the spring and summer months by moving your tree onto a deck, patio, or near a garden in your yard. Keep in mind that your Glenn Mango Tree requires 6 hours of sunlight a day during the growing season.
Planting your Glenn Mango Tree is a straightforward endeavor, even for the novice planter. You will begin the process the same way you begin nearly all gardening projects–by digging. If you can dig a hole, the rest is just details!
The hole should be a couple of inches deeper than the pot your tree comes in. Before planting, be sure to break up the soil so it’s nice and loose, and remove any debris, such as twigs, rocks, or rogue leaves. Once the planting area has been prepared, simply position the tree so the top of the root crown is at ground level. Next, replace the soil and tamp down lightly.
Your Glenn Mango Tree should be watered daily for the first 2 weeks upon planting. For the next six weeks, you can water it every 3 to 4 days. Once your tree is established, your tree will only require water once a week during the growing season and once a week during the winter months.
If your soil is rich, you can fertilize your tree as needed. Similarly, you can prune your tree as needed. If you choose to prune your Glenn Mango Tree, the ideal time is directly after harvest.
