R2E2 Mango Tree in Australia is great for cold climates Seedling vs Grafted


We show you just how large the R2E2 mango tree is and we talk about the seedling and grafted mango tree selections. The r2e2 is actually very hardy once established and is a great choice for cold marginal climates in Australia. This is for the seedling r2e2 and not the grafted r2e2. If you are in a subtropical to tropical climate best to get a grafted variety if your climate is cold and marginal than best to get a seedling. You will still need to protect it until it is at least 3m tall.

Now these great big Mangoes are the R2E2 mango and they are one of the largest of the Mango Fruits. They have this beautiful coloured fruit it's got a good flavour. We grow these as a grafted plant and we also grow them as seedlings. So if you have a seed grown mango tree some of them will be grown true to type but some of them aren't going to be grown true to type so you are going to get some seedling variations as we say. But they are a really fabulous tree it's quite a large tree give it plenty of space. It's going to grow more than 6m so be prepared to have a big tree in your backyard. But they are a lovely shady evergreen tree as well so a great tree to have in your backyard if you have the space. That's a beautiful tree beautiful fruit. The R2E2's are one of the best varieties to grow if you are in a marginal climate so if you live in South Australia or Victoria or south of Sydney and you want to try growing a Mango the R2E2 is one of the best choices to try. It's a bit hardier than the others. So although we can't promise you success if you're in a frost free location and you can protect your tree for the first few years until it's about 3m tall or so you are going to have a good chance of getting Mango fruits. So you might find that you have good Seasons and bad Seasons and that's pretty much Weather dependant. So you haven't got a great deal of control on that it's just something you have to take with growing Mangoes. But worth trying if you want to try growing Mangoes in a difficult Mango growing climate. So like all Mangoes best suited to the Tropics and the Subtropics. Give them a frost free location, good drainage, full Sun and you will be cropping Mangoes like this off a Seedling tree in about 6 years and off a Grafted plant in about 3.
