Ripe Glenn Mango in Northern California = SUCCESS!!
I have been a little MIA but I am slammed here with 2 babies.
Well, just here to report that I got a mango to ripen here in Northern California. I kept the plant outdoors without any winter protection and it went through 2 winters. I think if I am able to protect it through this winter I will be able to get mangoes on both my glenn and alphonso.
I know you are all dying to know, but the mango was really tasty, sweet with no fibersÃ¯Â¿Â½my 1 year old ate most of it and he looked like he thoroughly enjoyed it.
So for all you doubters that said you can not grow mangoes in Northern California, I guess this proves you wrong. I hope this helps encourage those that want to pursue growing tropicalsÃ¯Â¿Â½.just be sure to pick the right growing spot, be prepared to protect it, and of course a little luck doesnÃ¯Â¿Â½t hurt.
