Mango tree growth stages
Mango trees go through two stages:
stage of vegetative growth
The growth stage of the mango tree accompanies it throughout its life, from planting to the stage of productive deficiency and death. This stage is the vegetative production, which includes the stem, leaves and roots. This stage needs large amounts of water, fertilizers, and care to be able to produce a large amount of carbohydrates that contribute to the division processes that occur in the cores of the tree.
As for the stage of fruiting growth, it is the stage of maturity of the mango tree. Fruit production begins in the winter and spring seasons, when long vesicles filled with self-fertile flowers appear. The mango tree is able to pollinate itself without the need for another tree. These flowers gradually turn into fruits containing slowly developing seeds. During the fruiting growth phase, the process of formation of carbohydrates is concentrated in the fruits, and the process of floral transformation occurs when some vegetative buds turn into flower buds.
