Mosambi, Sweet Lime (Grafted) – Plant
Twice a year, in May/June and September/October (after the rains start), all trees get two or three kilos per tree (depending on the size of the tree) of a citrus fertilizer compound which is sprinkled about one meter from the trunk (it must not touch the trunk). This is a mixture of nitrogen (20 percent), phosphorus pentoxide (12.2 percent), potassium oxide (10 percent), magnesium oxide 2 percent), and sulfur trioxide (10 percent). In addition to this, occasionally when trees seem to need it (yellowing leaves or general weakening), they get an additional small amount of magnesium.
HARVESTING YOUR MUSAMBI
The harvest season is usually between June and September, depending on the variety. Fruit matures three to five months after flowering. Mangos should be picked before they are fully ripe, at which time they soften and fall. Fruits are usually picked after they develop some red, orange, or yellow color. Mangos will ripen and may be picked when the flesh inside has turned yellow, regardless of exterior color.
