I may pick some of these Mango's as this one is ready



Maybe a little longer for these ones there are about 10 or so on the small tree



These have come up in the spring onion bed the leaves look like watermelons
Being a volunteer they could be anything remember that white jam melon last year





And the Pumpkins are on the go.. I wonder how Daniel's are going.

Butternut..



And Kent, only tiny yet but they grow very fast here..

I thought I had lost all of mine in the heat but they are coming on now. They are growing in a mixture of compost, mulch and soil...and the photos probably do not do justice for them. They are nowhere near as progressed as yours Mary-Anne. The plants growing from your seeds are more advanced than others. The ones from Richard in NZ and some others have not survived at all.





There other plants in this section including zucchini and paw paw...and mulberries growing on the side...

I don't blame you Val I would be jealous of someone else Mangoes too Laughing

Tony said not yet, I say he is not a gardener and I am going to pick that top one tomorrow I like to pick them when they are green with a pink blush on their cheek, they ripen very quick at room temperature

I think Tony forgets that last year the Crows got into them because he left them on the tree till they got a little softer, and no jolly Crows are going to get them this year.

Mary-Anne, do you water/fertilise pumpkins or just let them live on water from skies?

You are correct MA my son in Darwin grew mango commercially and they always pick mango's as soon as the deep green turns a lighter green , they don;t grow any bigger if left on the tree . they ripen into a beautiful juicy mango that way . too much danger to leave them on the tree [ birds ] and there is no advantage to doing so . Here also they are always picked green as well.

I know little about growing mango so my question is genuine. If netted and left on the tree will the taste continue to develop like other fruit?

Thanks Gwen I agree that's the way to go.. thumb2

Yes .. The pumpkins get watered by buckets Tony job as they are no where near the Tank if they didn't they would die, no need to water them when its rains.

How can you net a mango tree Daniel they grow into a huge and wide tree.

No it doesn't to me they are like Avocado pick them when they are a little green and ripen them indoors that's the way I have always done it and believe me they taste so much better than shop bought one even if they are picked early.. And don't pull the stem off them in case the sap burns your skin do it later when they are on a table or something..Please bookmark this link http://www.agroforestry.net/tti/Mangifera-mango.pdf it has everything you would possibly need to know about growing Mangoes even if it was written in Hawaii, they pick them like Gwen and I said its on page 20...

How many mango trees do you have..
