MABOLO or what is also known as Kamagong is a big tree. But it can also be grown in a container. Through judicious pruning the tree can be maintained at a low height.
At the Sarian Farm in Teresa, Rizal, there are grafted seedless Mabolo trees grown in big rubberized containers that are fruiting. The important thing is to provide a growing medium that is rich in organic matter. The trees should also be fertilized regularly with either organic or chemical fertilizer, or both. Spraying the leaves with Alfonso Puyat’s Power Grower Combo, a plant growth accelerator, will also do wonders.
Mabolo is an old fruit variety that is not common these days. Most cultivars are seeded but there is also the seedless kind that is propagated by grafting. The fruit is fine-textured and with a distinct aroma.
