Very heavy fruiting in mango trees!
I observed about 250 out of 365 trees , took 2 hours to watch the trees.
All trees were unique with dense fruiting. 95% Trees were very short, fruits were hanging near the ground, big sized. there were ten varieties- Dasshehri, Langda, Kesar, Rajapuri, Haapus, Aamrapali, Desi, Chausa, Mallika.
Fruits were not found on 12 trees.
Specific behaviour of few trees- They flower throughout the year and give yield round the year.
There is a picture of a tree showing fruits on one hand and new flowers on other hand.
Site: Mango orchard of YARN Manufacturing plant -RSWM Limited at Baanswara in Rajasthan.
Location23 55’ N and 74 45’E in state of Rajasthan.

Very crisp writing; to the point! The essential details like coordinates make the write up very useful. However, we need reference to the fact that the trees flower round the year. It surely defies the biological rhythms that normally control plants including mango trees! How do we explain this?

“…ten varieties- Dasshehri, Langda, Kesar, Rajapuri, Haapus, Aamrapali, Desi, Chausa, Mallika…”
Would be great to see photos of all these 10 mango varieties!
I am sure, in this season of mangoes we can assemble photos…,!
