Mango cultivation practices for the subtropics

Code: 9781838794484
Victor Galán Saúco, Instituto Canario de Investigaciones Agrarias (ICIA), Spain

Chapter synopsis: Mango is well adapted to hot, tropical climates. However, it can also be grown in the mild subtropics, where cooler winter temperatures improve flower induction and cause early bearing and lower annual growth rates, which help to control size and favour high-density plantings. There are also disadvantages to growing mango in the subtropics: cold spells and low temperatures can damage vulnerable young trees or areas of young growth, or can induce flowering of very young trees at the nursery, causing premature ageing of inadequately managed plants. This chapter reviews the differences between mango cultivation in tropical and subtropical climates and explores the factors necessary for successful subtropical cultivation.
