Notes for Identification:

An abundant harvest of juicy, red-gold fruit and attractive dark green, tropical foliage make mango (mangifera indica) a popular home landscape item in very large yards for warm climates. The trees grows to be 30 to 45 feet tall and almost 50 feet wide, so allow plenty of room for growth. New foliage is a brilliant purple-red, and flower and fruit clusters extend well beyond the long, glossy leaves. The tree is covered with very showy, white flower spikes in march and early april. Mango trees grow quickly into round, multibranched, dense, spreading shade trees but placement is limited due to the falling fruit. Some people are allergic to the pollen, the sap and even the fruit.

It seems like something is always falling from a mango tree to litter the lawn. Place it in a bed with other plants to hide the litter. There are several cultivars available which have been selected for fruit quality: `keitt', `hent', `edward', `glenn', `haden' and others are best for florida; `alolia', `edgehill', `haden', `manila'source: u.
