The mango flowers in bloom

In the picture is a portion of our mango tree with the blooming flower that would later on turn into small fruits. If you have sharp eyes then you probably can spot one small mango, the green one as small as a corn kernel. The rest of the flowers will follow suit to bear small mangoes that would grow big if there is no interference.

The biggest problem of the mango when blooming is the rain. When the flowers are opening to get ready for pollination and the rain pours, for sure there would be no fruits because the pollination will not push through. And when the pollination is successful and the fruits are starting to come out, insects that produce cobweb could ruin the small fruits. When the mangoes grow and starting to ripen, the birds and bats would be feasting on the fruits. So you can imagine the hardship of the orchard farmer for bringing the mango to the market for you to buy.
