The plant arrived quickly and looking healthy. I put it in a larger pot and it handled the transition well. It’s been a little over two weeks and the plant still looks good.
Tree was packed well in the box on arrival and the tree is in good condition.
This grower needed some more praise since my original review. My 4 foot Orange sherbert Mango tree hasn't slowed down since delivery a bit over three months ago, almost every week it seems to burts with new growth. The attached picture is of the tree now 3-1/4 months later, with a 7 foot fence behind it. I have it in a 20 gallon cloth grow bag protected by a 110 gallon stock tank (keeps the pests from bothering it and drains any excess water through the bottom plug). The grow bag probably adds about another foot to the original container it came in, so by this average it has grown about one foot each month. If the tree continues at the same rate, I'll probably have to use the stock tank as it's container by next year. Keep doing what you're doing Evergaldes Farms!
I posted a review back in April 10 and this is an UPDATE. It's been a little over 6 months and into its 3rd flushing. Branches were drooping because of the weight of the new growth. The last week in August, I decided to prune for structure support since there were 3 branches and a central lead. WOW. Growth exploded. There are 26 new branches (on 4 limbs) about an inch long. Never seen any thing like this. I am growing strictly organic- no chemical fertilizers. I owe Everglades a big thank you because this is a very exceptional tree.
I was a bit hesitant about ordering a tree online but I'm pleased to say this little 3 gallon orange sherbet arrived in great shape! I'm very thankful that Everglades farm will ship to us folks here in California and at a great price point. So far my orange sherbet mango tree has produced a few new flushes and is looking strong! Here's to hoping I will get some fruit in the next 2 - 3 years. Thank you Everglades farm
