It is a nice fruit, one of my wife's favorites.  The texture of the flesh is firm, not quite crisp but almost -- very different from most tropical fruits.  Flavor is often compared to apricot and sometimes raspberries.  The ones I have tried have an essence of these fruits but the flavor is not strongly "in your face" of these fruits.  It is worth growing & the seedlings seem to grow pretty vigorously.  Be aware that the seeds are big (but so are the fruits) so shipping may be more expensive.


As far as I know, they have the tree in 3, 7 and 15 gallon. But it is wholesale; you will need a license to get trees from there.
Anyone know..What sizes of mango trees does Zill offer for Maha Chanok..I'm looking for 2 -25 gallon

Did you find this one?
This page ( is in Spanish but has an email to contact for more information for those interested in making their own pulque. Don Guillermo at Hacienda de Xochuca - They have a web page and two pulquerias - La Paloma Azul and La Pirata which have Facebook pages.
I sent some mails

About Guabiyú:

Guabiju needs a bit if light to sprout, maybe they will sprout into the package, but if they doesnt, sow a bit buried into your soil, water but dont drown them... they need an humid soil, dont drown while sprouting... then, when there is a plant, you can water more... their natural habit is near the rivers. In any doubt, just PM me or mail me, thanks.

Hey thanks guys for the information on those heaters. I will look into them. I used burn barrels because I have a ton of wood but used oil will be easy to come by as well. Many in my area were reporting these low temps but I was unaware that radiant cold can give a false reading. Thanks for the information all.

I am amazed.....I have only been to Florida in summer, never knew or even thought Florida would get those low temperatures.  Absolutely amazed by this post.....learn something everyday.
The photo that Guavaking is using for "Langra"mango was ripped from a gardenweb thread about an unknown seedling:
