My husband and I are so fortunate to have had our big mango tree in our front yard since buying our house in 2010. There was a year where the mango tree along with our avocado tree didn’t bear any fruit. It was sad, especially being that we enjoy both the mangoes and avocados so much. My neighbor advised me to drive three rusty nails into each. You could imagine the skepticism with which I took this advise but I knew better than to question it, being that she had much experience with plants and trees.
So I gave it a go, drove three rusty nails into each tree along with fertilizing them and our other fruit bearing plants every 14 days for a whole year. A year later, both our trees are bursting with their fruits! The first of the mangoes that have fallen were used to make this oh so creamy and tropical tasting mango gelato. I hope you enjoy some soon!
