How to Grow a Mango Tree in a Pot Easily

Also called the king of fruits, the mango tree grows in the warm tropical climate, not winter hardy, and dies in the temperature below 25 F (-3 C). Usually, it requires a lot of space to grow. But if you’re short of space or living in a colder climate, where growing a mango tree on the ground is impossible–Growing a mango tree in a container can be an option.

3. Planting a Mango Tree

Select a planter according to the current size of the rootball of the plant and update the planter as the plant gets bigger in a year or two or whenever it’s required. You’ll need a large pot to accommodate a mango tree.

In the beginning, a two-size bigger planter than the rootball would be sufficient. If you’ll grow a dwarf variety, your compact mango tree will fit well in a 30-40 gallon pot once it becomes mature.

The Best Time for Planting: The best time for planting a mango tree is in spring. However, in their native habitat like India, mangoes are planted before the beginning of the Monsoon (July, August) or after the rainy season.
