Mango season just ended, at least in our tree. We have Pirie mango and Hayden. The mangoes in the picture are Hayden. I have a good time picking the mangoes in the backyard. This year I was able to make lots of mango jam.
As soon as the last mango was picked though, the trees had to be trimmed. I guess, it would help in having more fruits next season.
In my grandparents farm, they would build a bon fire beside the tree and made sure there are lots of smoke. I guess the Carbon dioxide helps the mango in producing more fruits or maybe its also a way to repel all the insects that might have been pestering the tree. Either way, its an organic way of farming and I’m proud my grandparents are responsible farmers.
