Mango Trees Flowering in Puerto Rico

Mango flowers off road 429. I also noticed trees along 115 were also flowering.

I like plants, and I can't help but to notice mango trees are already flowering for spring.  Since I moved to Puerto Rico I noticed trees flower in January, but this year they flowered in November.

Global warming? A rainy dry season?  Who knows?

The trees in my back yard have yet to flower.  They give us 2 great crops a year.  We have the typical mango here, and I believe they're called Bombay Gold.  They're sweet and tasty.  We dehydrate them (with lemon and honey), make jams, and smoothies.  I'm growing pineapple mangoes, but they've yet to produce fruit.
