Should I remove the flowers of my young mango tree still in a container?

It is a good idea to remove the flowers from a young mango tree that is still in a 3-gal or a 7 -gal pot as Flowers can negatively impact its growth. Focus should be on providing proper care to the tree, including proper watering, fertilization, and pest management to promote healthy growth and vigor.

If the flowers have become small mangos, they will most likely fall off, as the tree is not strong enough to hold them. However, a few may make it.
We have seen where a small mango tree can produce one to two eatable mangos.

If your tree is less than three feet tall, we recommend removing both flowers and small mango fruits. So that all the tree's energy goes to its growth and not fruit production.
