Mr. Nagrecha,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

I suggest you contact Mr. Julian Sauls who is the expert on such fruit crops in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. The only area where mangoes can be grown is the southern tip of Texas. His contact info is:
