Encouraging branching on young mango
I saw an older, similar post and replied to it, thinking it would bump up but I guess that doesn't work on these forums. Anyway, as the other poster did, I have a young mango about 5 ft tall just growing straight up so far. I know I need to cut it but I'm wondering if I should wait until after "winter" here in Central Florida. I don't know the tree variety, it was grown from seed by a coworker and given to me. I'm not getting my hopes up for a great crop because I know they're not always true from seed, but I'd like to give it its best shot.
I'm also wondering how short I should go. Stu123 asked a question on the other thread and I think it was misinterpreted and not answered correctly. If I cut it back to 3' and get new branches, those branches will always be 3' off the ground, right? There's no growth from the bottom?
Thanks for your expertise!
