Thanks! A quick google search and there are a few places that sell its seeds, which is more than what I like to deal with as cutting is easier. I guess I will wait and see if my current "Yellow Dragon" will do well and how it taste, and if I don't like it, then I will be on the hunt to try the Hawaiian Golden.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Best tasting mangos of 2018
« Last post by palmcity on Today at 01:52:10 PM »
My IMO review and many things changed from year to year even some grown in my yard; I only went to two other places for a few of these. I will wait on some new varieties to grow.

Rosigold dropped from very good to below average taste and also poor disease resistance/fungus on fruit etc. in my location. Another disappointment is Sweet Tart in my yard for the second year in a row and varying ripening stages etc. I have found it (ST) to be worst than large Keitt in getting a consistent ripe fruit. It tends to hold more fungus on the fruit than Keitt also at my location and the splitting from the sun is worst than with Keitt in my location. Finally, the taste IMO has been extreme but extreme is not always desirable and unfortunately not for me yet. I do like salt and pepper on food but I do not like to eat only salt or only pepper and the same for the Sweet Tart mango so far. Hopefully, my opinion will change with next years crop as I found out with Madem Francis & Carrie developing a taste and the tree becoming more established and sweeter over the years.

Having mangos of varying taste profiles like tropical vs. lemony vs. lime vs. orange vs citrus vs. tart vs. sour etc. is great to create your own mango event eating your favorite flavor & then supplementing it with one of the other tasting profiles. This is why I consider many like philippean, for a lemony taste, okrung with eating skin to get a lime taste, orange essence for a orange taste, Florigon eating skin also for a citrus taste, as good as any other to eat with your favorite mango meal.

IMO Excellant: Carrie

IMO Very good: Keitt, Maha Chanok, Edward, Kent, Mallika (wife considers this her #1),

IMO Very good for flavors to supplement your main mango meal: philippean, duncan (for me this can also be a main meal), orange sherbert, okrung, sweet tart,

IMO Good: Madem Francis, Valencia Pride, Glen, Florigon, Haden, Young aka Tebow,

IMO Average Gift Mango: Pickering, Tommy Atkins

IMO Below Average: Rosigold

I did not try to try more mangos as no reason, no need IMO as long as you have this much variety, these choices are good to play with the various taste buds. 
(Never eat mangos or mango skin if allergic to them.)

Hawaiian Golden. Basically they are yellow H. Undatus they taste the same as the standard white flesh some people find it bland and others like it. FamilyJ and Spaugh have cuttings of that type and itís variations which are almost all the same. There is also the Israel Yellow but I find that one to have more accents of green on its fin so I donít think itís that plus itís restricted but some people have it.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Yellow Dragon Fruit variety.

I'm growing a yellow Dragon Fruit call "Yellow Dragon", which I think is the common one where the fruit has thorn. I come across this and wondering if anyone know the variety of the dragon fruit. You can see it from 1:59 of the video:

The  guy bought it from Craiglist in CA, but doesn't know the name of the variety.

Chennai does not have tropical weather like Florida and rest of the tropics. Chennai gets rain like rest of india in early summer to end of summer. Soursop thrives in tropical weather. Its probably the same reason Florida cannot fruit Cherimoya? could be.

behlgarden, I'm confused.  Are you saying it will fruit or not fruit in Chennai?

what I am saying that Chennai may not have the climate to support Sour Sop fruit. Its very difficult to grow in California and we grow Cherimoya just fine, Florida cant grow cherimoya but grow soursop and atemoya just fine. Do you get rain showers throughout the year like tropical areas?
