Mini Mango Tree
I'm a new member, but a lurker for a while, but I finally have a question I couldn't find an answer to anywhere, so i had to sign up :)
I planted 3 mango seeds. I live in winnipeg, canada and I'm not really expecting much from them, as we have -30 to -40C winters. (obviously these are indoor plants). I basically just planted them for fun and to see what would happen. I'm guessing they're all different breeds, but they're all growing VERY differently. One I planted about a month before the others looks a lot like all the mango trees I see in pictures... about 8 inches tall now, lots of long, pointy leaves that are each about 5" long. The second and third I planted at the same time... one is now about 6 inches tall with leaves that are about 8 inches long (they drag in the dirt when they first come out), and the second is about 2 inches tall with leaves about the same (2 inches).
Is there typically this much variation in the plants between species? The tiny one was probably the best mango I ever ate (no fibres, with almost a pineappley-mango taste)...thus my desire to plant it... but it seems so odd that it's that much smaller than other ones that were planted at the same time. They are all planted in the same dirt, get the same light and same water/fertilizer. They're all really healthy, and all between 8-10 months old.
Has anyone here had a mango plant that small?
