One reason I am across the border. My Dad lives in IL, I did ask him why once. He retired from a job of 23 years on full pension and another job for 30 years on another full pension. In IL he pays no income tax on either.
I know of two dwarfed mango trees here. They are both in the ground, and one is only about four feet tall, and the other (in a better location) much bigger, maybe five feet with a spread of seven feet. Neither has had but three or four mangoes, in the last three years that I've known them. Maybe they ought to be root-bound in a pot in order to fruit.
cool thanks guys sorry I haven't been on the holidays decided to take a bad turn and have been busy...Dave I'm gonna put mango trees in a conservatory on the 33 acres in Missouri...and maybe a small one here at the house, unless I can find a place that will ship me mango juice...LOL
I let the seed dry, then cut it with the scroll saw on one end. Got a screw driver and opened the shell after I cut it and put it in a gallion of potting soil. I got it at the Grocery store. I also have a passion seed that has grown. Don't believe either to be winter hardy. I just want to grow them.
