Details: Mango 'Nam Doc Mai' (Mangifera indica hybrid) This superior Thailand mango is the most sought after mango variety in Asia for its sweet, delicious flavor and juicy, fiberless fruit. The fruit has an elongated shape that tapers to a point and ripens to golden yellow. It's considered by many to be the best tasting, dessert quality mango. The fruit ripens from summer to fall depending on your climate. Mangoes can be eaten green or ripe. We prefer to harvest them once they ripen to golden yellow. They may be eaten as fresh fruit and are also tasty in fruit salads, desserts or juices.Grow in a large pot and move outside for the summer in northern zones or plant directly in the ground in warm climates. 'Nam Doc Mai' is a prolific fruiter. This is a grafted plant that blooms and fruits sooner. Hardiness Zone 10 Bloom Season Spring Sun Requirement Full Sun Grows to 4-6' Minimum Temperature Indoors 50 Light: Full sun; a southern exposure is best. Temperature: In pots in the north it's best to maintain temperatures above 60°. Humidity: As a general rule relative humidity of 50% or higher is best although they will tolerate lower levels without harm for short periods. Watering: Always bring the soil to visual dryness between waterings and then thoroughly saturate the soil until some water trickles from the bottom of the pot Fertilizer: Feed with a balanced fertilizer at moderate levels when in active growth. A liquid feed diluted by half once every two weeks or quarter dilution once a week. Topdressing every month or two with an organic fertilizer also works well. Be sure to use a low balanced fertilizer no higher than 15-15-15. Pruning: Trees in container need little in the way of pruning with the exception of maintaining form and height. Flower buds form from the previous year's growth so a pruned branch has to go through one cycle before flowering. Insects and Disease: Highly susceptible to root diseases. Grow in clay pot and manage the waterin
