Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: New commercial variety of Mango available
« Last post by simon_grow on June 24, 2018, 12:21:51 AM »
These Mangos are in season again. I got this at Vinh Hung in Mira Mesa, San Diego.

I really wish I knew exactly what this variety is. Once again itís labeled as Manilla Mango

Man, that Bertanha cultivar is garbage. My workplace serves it in the cafeteria here in Dubai. Matter of fact, I just had it this morning.  Yes, it is big, bland, and semi-fibrous. I was planning to take a pix and ask you guys about it, but I was like "yeah."

Has anyone had a taste of this cultivar?

the fruits are purple, elongated, and look like a zeppelin

they look like they could tip the scales and beat the largest keitt or lancetilla mango out there.

Any feed back??? Brasilieros calling all Brasilieros!.
New PM sent.  :)

I manually take out the yellow eggs they put in new leaves.

I've never heard of anyone who put chokanon in their top 20 in taste or production.  The 2nd crop never ripens well in the off season.
So your plan to top work with lemon meringue sounds reasonable and better.

The only references I could find talked about gathering them in the wild, but they weren't sold in the market. People tended to just take them home to their families instead of selling them.

Hi DeeMango,
Yes Vietnamese name for this fruit is "Chým Chŗy". They often collected wild in the middle of Vietnam together with "Dủ Dẻ" (Melodorum siamense / Rauwenhoffia siamensis Scheff) as in the pictures.
But I don't know the ID of "Chým Chŗy".

I just had a super Julie for first time last night, picked it up from tropical acres...smalller than the normal Julie and not as square shaped, tasted as very sweet mango dipped in gasoline resin lol....I loved it, want to eat more and read more about the specs, may consider growing it.


Not sure that is how I'd describe it. To me it was like tasting the air in an Indian Market. Strong Indian Spice flavor.
