Mango Cultivation in the Canary Islands

Mangifera-cv-Gomera-1 Canarius | 01 de junio de 2016 |

Description

It is a very robust medium sized tree, with dome shaped crown, and stiff, thick, arching leaves. Flushes of new leaves are deep red-burgundy. It is able to flower up to 3 times a year. If it is too cold or wet, it will loose the inflorescences and flower again, about 2 months later, until the right season for fruit set is matched.

Fruits are yellow with pale dots and sometimes with a hint of pink. They are produced in groups, with a small to average size (250 g average), very good flavour, aromatic, with a high content in fibres.

Genetic analysis shows it is very closely related (not the same) to the Cuban Mango ” Filipino “, and to the Floridan Mango ” Turpentine “. It is possibly the same of the Cuban ” Manga Blanca “.
