Mango Panicles Setting Fruit

The mango panicles that I have been photographing are starting to set fruit and now begins the much slower and selective phase of this cycle. There may be 10 to 50 small fruits that set on each panicle but as time passes many, if not all, will drop. Last year, I tagged 3 panicles on 6 Keitt mango trees and only one of these panicles produced one mature fruit.
