Mango Tree

I have a few leaves on a young potted Mango tree that are brown and curling on the edges. The pot seems plenty big enough, so I don’t believe that root binding is a problem. Any other ideas?

Fruit cracking can be caused by several things: watering issues (like over or under watering), high temperatures, low humidity, and calcium deficiency.

Can a Mango Tree, Grown From Seed, Be Maintained in a Pot and Not Planted?

I want to grow mango from seed but want to keep it in pots. Is this ok and will it still bear fruit? I live in northern Florida (Panama City Beach), but like some of my fruit trees to stay in pots.

Yes, you can grow them in containers as long as long as it is large enough to accommodate the tree once mature. Your seedling tree, however, shouldn't require too large of a pot for at least the first year or two. The following article should be of some help to you. Though it's for dwarf types, the same principles will still apply: http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/fegen/dwarf-fruit-trees-a-planting-guide-for-fruit-trees-in-containers.htm

Mango Tree – No Fruit

We have been in this house for three years and our mango tree has never bore fruit, although for the last two years it has flowered. Can you advise if we need to do anything else apart from watering regularly and fertilizing every now and then in order for it to bear fruit? We are in the Canary Islands.

When you get blossoms but no fruit, or when blossoms drop, this is normally an indication of poor pollination. If there are not enough natural pollinators around or if it's grown indoors, the tree will have difficulty producing. This is why we sometimes have to intervene by hand pollinating. Just use a small paint brush and swirl it around the inside of the flower and repeat on all the flowers on the plant.

You can encourage additional pollinators to the area for outoor trees. Here is more information on that: http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/beneficial/insect-pollination-process.htm

Green Ants

How do we get rid of green ants in our mango tree?

If you are seeing ants, it probably means you have an aphid problem. The ants are not a problem, but the aphids are. Once the aphids are treated, the ants will leave too. Here is some information on treating aphids:
