Q.What Kind Of Growth Is Normal For New, Young Mango Trees?

Zone Palm Springs, CA, Sunset zone 13. | Anonymous added on April 17, 2022 | Answered

My new young, small (18″) grafted Nam Doc Mai mango tree that I just planted out is putting out flowers instead of leaves. I don’t think this is good for the tree. Should I leave it alone, remove the flowers and hope it then puts out leaves, or what? I planted it out in February and it just sat there, doing nothing, until mid-April, when it suddenly shot up a 3″ flower inflorescence. What is going on and what should I do? I don’t think it can afford to put energy into flowers instead of leaves. If I remove flower inflorescence will it harm tree? Never seen this happen in such a young fruit tree. Need help.
