New Mango pruning? Opinions wanted

jwthought81August 21, 2012

Hi all,

I recently acquired an ice cream and a mallika mango at Home Depot which are grafted trees from Pine Island Nursery. I got these youngster about a week ago and I did some pruning as soon as I got them home. Now, Im looking at them and Im wondering if they would benefit from a more severe pruning or "pugging", in the interest of keeping them bushy.

Here's a few shots. What do you all think?

they look pretty lanky, wouldn't hurt to pug them, especially since you want a bushy form.
