Fruit FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the “Mango Farm” and who are you?
We are California Exotic Specialty Fruits. We have been here since 1981 in Fallbrook, California. Our Mango Farm is just a portion of our entire Exotic Fruit Grove. Our property is 10.36 aches. We are exotic fruit growers who live & work here full-time.
What kind of growers are you?
We are Conventional Growers. That means we prune our trees and set them into dormancy, once they are dormant, we fertilize and they set a bloom. We do not use sprays. We do use fertilizers one time a year to get a bloom. Atemoyas and cherimoyas are Hand Pollenate Each & Every Flower to get a commercial crop. We Really Are Hand Grown. Each & Every Fruit is Cared For & Tended by Hand from Planting, to Fertilizing, Pruning & Shaping of Trees, Hand Removal of Insects, Use Of Beneficial Insects (we love bees) & Organic Pest Control.
When do you have Baby Green Mango Available?
Each year is different depending on seasonal behaviors and climate. This Year (2017) Our Mango Season Should Start around Mid June or July and Lasts until November or December (2017).
