This Bowen Mango weighed in at 754g and although it is not the heaviest mango we have had, we are very happy with this one. It is another of the mango trees we gave our son to grow on his acreage at Elimbah.

He doesn't do anything to it,  other than chasing crows away from them.  His soil isn't the best either, a bit of clay underneath. Sometimes we molly-coddle our trees too much.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
