This is a small Mango tree I bought for my friend Madeline at Fairchild Tropical Garden to replace the one she had in her back yard which had met with an untimely death. You see, her rambunctious dog Bruce likes mangos a lot. He had eaten the fruit off her old tree then proceeded to eat the tree itself. I’m not sure what precautions Madeline’s going to take this time to prevent her new tree from meeting a similar fate. I know she’s put Bruce through various rounds of obedience training but I doubt any of that is going to work once he is faced with the temptation of tasty mangos. Anyway, your new Rosigold Mango is at my house waiting for you Maddie… and Bruce.
