Growing a Mango Tree From Seed

gjnlen added on June 28, 2016 | Answered

I have a mango tree that will be completing its second year of growth this August/September. It is slightly over 5 ft tall and straight with no branches. It does, however, have all of the leaves it has produced since emerging from the seed. My 2 questions are these: how do I force it to produce branches, and when should that be done? My present thoughts are that I need to cut the top of the newly forming main shoot just shortly after the new reddish leaves turn green. I would really appreciate your help here. Thanks, Gary

Pruning for shape and production begins when the tree is 4 years old.
