Restarting: Daleys Fruit Tree Forum

We have re-opened the Daleys fruit tree forum where you can ask questions about your backyard fruit trees, edibles, rainforest trees and anything plant related.
Last month we made an announcement that we closed the forum. However many people contacted us and told us how they enjoyed the forum and what it meant to them.

To make the forum work we are now moderating each comment before they are posted live so that the forum is a safe and fruitful place to hang out.

Grafted Mango Tree - Should I keep the flowers?

If you have a young Grafted Mango Tree it is probably flowering right now so this is timely advice on the question "Should I keep the flowers?"

Seedling mango trees can take 4-9 years before they even start flowering and when they do they are quite mature but your grafted mango tree can flower & fruit even in the first year like this mango tree in the video. So what happens if you don't interfere with your grafted mango tree and just let it flower and fruit? Are you doing the right thing?
