The Mango Tree in Bloom

Few people outside of Sri Lanka know how beautiful the tree looks in bloom, and though we hope that an abundance of flowers gives us an abundance of fruit, we are supposed to cut off many of the flowers to keep only a few left from which the fruit will come, as otherwise having too many flowers may even reduce the size of the fruit or even produce small bunches that will fall off prior to maturity! Lets see in a few months, whether I will even get one fruit from this tree, as this tree has yet to produce fruit despite flowering, and being about 4 years since planting.
