Cac Hoa Loc from Toptrop, or fake?
« on: October 09, 2017, 06:15:32 PM »
I bought this special Vietnamese mango at higher price --  from Toptrop a few years ago. This year it had a few fruits, and based on the look it is not Cac Hoa Loc as sold but rather Mahachanok to me. So far I have two incidents that they seem to have mis-labeling the trees: wrong Edward and Cac Hoa Loc. I hate when this happened because we spent lots of effort and times, especially outside of idea tropical climate area, to nurture the trees and then ended up with something else.

I could be wrong but this pic shows it is Maha and not the yellow Cac Hoa Loc. Now I have two Maha trees.

Place has an unbelievable mis-label rate.

Fruit in the photo is a Maha, definitely NOT Hoa Loc.

You're not wrong.  I've had Mahachanok in Thailand, and Cat Hoa Loc in Vietnam.  I agree with the above posts.  The trees look different too.

Sure looks like a Maha to me.

This is not Vietnamese mango 'Cat Hoa Loc' friend.
And the correct name is Cat Hoa Loc, not Cac Hoa Loc.
Here is the pictures for Cat Hoa Loc:
