The Haden mango is a large tree that should be planted in moist, well drained soil with full exposure to the sun. It can grow to over 20 feet in height when mature, but will still produce well when kept trimmed at 15 feet. If provided adequate nutrients, young trees will begin producing fruit in as little as 5 years. The Haden mango is susceptible to certain kinds of fungus and should be treated on an annual basis. Mature trees will tolerate cold temperatures, but care should be taken with younger trees if temperatures drop below 30 degrees. Regular fertilization will assist in increased fruit production.
The large, ovular and open canopy of the Haden mango tree defines the essence of a tropical setting. Because of its large size, it is often used as a centerpiece around which broader tropical plant landscape settings are developed. Both the long clusters of flowers and the yellow-red fruits add a delightful backdrop of colors from early spring to late summer.
