fro what I have read

on younger trees many people thin fruits or remove them completely if the tree is very young. A gentleman in Florida reccomends thinning after the fruit has set and grown some. If it is done to close to bloom time some trees reflower. Because his trees are still smal, he thins by hand. If the trees are mature, thinnig would produce less fruit but in theory they would be larger and perhaps of higher quality.

once again, thiis is just from what I've read, my mango trees are very young.

good luck,
