LIFE OF A MANGO

Rootstock is propagated from suckers, which are identical copies of parent trees (or clones)

Scions are grafted parts taken from a grown mango tree. These scions are then inserted into the rootstock

Rootstock with the integrated scions are then planted in a nitrogen positive mix for a couple of years. A fertilizer mix of phosphate and potash is added 2-4 times per year until the mango tree is fully grown

Planted rootstock can take 6-8+ years to become fully grown

Mangoes take 4-5+ months to grow on fully matured tree
