Yeah, I think so too. My folks just bought me some Valencia Pride for $55 or something.

Agreed. Armstrong has mangos in 5 gal or possibly larger for $35 or $50 or something like that. Certainly <<<<<<<$100.


I think they were grafted Keitts, but I didn't take a photo of the tag.

Re: Home Depot/Lowes mangoes: size depends on when you buy them and when they restock them. I've seen some relatively large trees.

Laguna Hills Nursery has some grafted mangoes -- I saw an Edwards there a few weeks ago.

Champa nursery in El Monte has lots of Florida mangoes mainly from Pine Island Nursery.

H&H nursery in Lakewood has lots of LaVerne nursery mangoes

HD and Lowe's have a much more limited selection, but you can order various LaVerne mangoes from them (I'm pretty sure).

Good luck. HD/Lowe's prices are 25-40$, 70$ for Keitt. Same with H&H. Champa and Laguna Hills will charge more but you can get other varieties from them.
