Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: 3 mango Talks This Week

Went to the Broward Rare Fruit and Vegetable council tonight. It is definitely worth spending the evening listening to someone passionate about mangoes. Make the trip mango lovers you wont be disappointed.

I have been whispering sweet nothings at my first, one and only Lemon Zest for the last few months, I opened up the protective clam shell and it had a split from stem to stern. #%$&^*

The Fairchild festival is truly no longer worth making the trip for.  You are much better off visiting local growers and farms and sampling fresh picked/ripened local grown fruit at one's liesure and enjoyment .

You can buy quite a few bags of different tasty mangoes for that Fairchild entrance fee

Honey Kiss appears to be a mid to late and easy to keep small in my yard.

Lemon Zest a dud this year? dab-gumit  My first year fruiting and I am waiting for some color change on this fruit, it is in a clam shell(maybe I should use two) for it being highly prized. The 1/4 sized fruit that was purged from the tree was intense.

Mine is producing well, it is still a young tree, maybe year 3 or 4 out of a 3 gallon. Slow growing in my yard.

I shipped Mauritius this year, 7 boxes of the sampler size, maybe just over a pound each using the USPS priority. All seven made it with no damage. 2 days to Texas, Minnesota and Washington State. I packed them loose in the box. This was before Texas hit 100 degrees.

My Pickering which was severely damaged a year and a half ago is holding a fair amount pea mango from the second bloom. All the regular timeline blooms/mongolets fell, yea for the late bloom.

lychees are like crack cocaine, or that of a potato chip. You are not eating just one.

This mango fell from my Hatcher. I can see fine splits in the rot spot. What dreaded disease is this?

My grumachama fruits are really good...beautiful fruit, rich and sweet...as long as you don't chew the peelings. Is it normal for the peelings to have a terpentine taste?
Mine sure do, and it gets Fruit Fly worms also. Seriously thinking of cutting it down.

thanks
Does Carabao usually produce this early? Is it a different variety within the Philippines mango? I saw a Philippine tag today that said June-July. Having the Rosigold (at least 2 weeks till ripe) and looking to add another super early.

It’s the same as “Philippine”. I’d say it usually starts in May. One tree had a significant March/April crop though.

Rosa is a more consistent spring mango. Edward and Dwarf Hawaiian also.
