Hi,
 
I have another question today for this helpful group pl!
 
Could anyone explain to me why many mango trees are blooming ( an really heavily at that) this month? This is unusual right? Has it got anything to do with Climate Change?
 
Are the trees in bloom in the North of India?
 
Last year I saw mangos on the neighbours tree in Dec/Jan. Isnt mango a summer fruit -- April/May?

This is unusual for the mango tree to bloom at this time.   I think it failed to bloom during the flowering season.  I think climate change also could be the reason.  Can you please send us a photo of the Mango tree.?

Regards,

Mani.

Hi,
 
Here is the picture of the neighbours tree. I have seen mango trees across Bangalore in bloom. Could you let me know if this is happening now in N, W and E India too? Would make an interesting story for me.
 
regards,

Your neighbour's mango tree is beautiful.   I think it is due to the rise in temperature and the untimely rainfall.  Waiting for other reasons.

Regards,

Mani.
