Just bought a house with this living in the yard. Some type of fruit tree but not sure which. Any help would be great.
Thanks

Close up on the leaves

looks like a mango to me but I'm in zone 7

I agree with John. The leaves look very much like mango's leaves.

What zone you are in? Planting a mango tree out in the yard is impressive.

We are in San Diego so a mango tree would probably have a pretty tough time I would think. Then again they must have planted it for some reason. I do love mangos so I would love for it to work here. If not, maybe I should pull it an plant another tree instead?

Well,it's growing.Why not see what it does?

Looks like a mango to me as well. Mangos do quite well in San Diego county, especially if you're close to the ocean. My mango froze 2 winters ago, when we had that ridiculous cold snap. But then, I'm 6 miles from the coast and up in the hills, so I can get a fair amount colder than at the coast. With protection it would have survived.

If your microclimate is good/warm enough for mango, it has a good chance. Some mango varieties tolerate cold weather better than the others. If you know the variety, you can look it up.

Where I am, it's in the middle of winter. What does your tree look like now?

If you have enough space, why not keep it? It looks very healthy. You may need to protect it during a very cold spell. Good luck.

We are just under 1 mile from the ocean in Cardiff. I will definitely keep it because like I said I LOVE mangos. Can't say the same for the loquat tree that is in the yard as well though.

Gregorio, you're in mango country. Just watch if we get a ridiculous cold snap like last year, but looks to me like a mango. Keep us posted.

I love loquats. First fruit of the season....though if it is from seed it can be problematic.

Is there any way to tell what type of mango tree it is without waiting for the fruit?


 o
RE: Anyone know what this tree is?

I'd say it'd be very difficult. Where I grew up, even mango growers had hard time telling different varieties apart by just looking at the leaves.
