Got mine yesterday  :)
Thanks Behl

Thanks... I'll definitely check with Alex. Planning to head to Miami and surrounding areas come July for some serious mango gorging with the family.

Thanks for the info. Nice to know that it is available. Wow!! $117.00 (reduced price) for a 3 gal. I'll pass and continue looking. It's one of the few mangos, including the bacang (M. foetida) that were available in the boonies in Malaysia. While M. foetida grows wild, M. siamensis is grown in backyards. IIRC siamensis is much better than foetida.

Came across a vendor offering a seedling Siamese mango tree for sale. It is one one the mangos I grew up eating in SE Asia and would like a tree in the yard. Question is, without knowing who or what the daddy species is, can I expect at least a good approximation of the Siamese mango flavor from this tree? Or better yet, can I get a grafted Siamese mango tree in Florida ?

Good advise, Rob. We don't actually let the mangos drop to the bottom of the cage. We're so antsy that one of us is out there daily "fondling"  :-[ those mangos, which are easily accessible through the bottom of the cage. Nice thing is if they drop, the fruit doesn't get bruised. And they do oftentimes drop, but those that are ready will come off easily with a gentle tug.

You could fabricate something like this. 1/2 in vinyl-coated steel mesh (22 ga or thinner). Keeps the critters out. Last for years (4 and counting). I don't believe in sharing with squirrels and other pests...they always pick the best fruits  :(

Most likely A. galanga, wasn't aware of the other spp. Positive that this is the one in oriental markets.

Google for "Tom Kha Gai" recipes. The ginger ingredient for this Thai soup actually galangal. This link has a pretty authentic Tom Kha Gai

Where in S Fla did you get the plants? I'm planning a trip come July and would like to pick up a couple of the plants, esp. the pink and red.

Pandanus is the closest thing the SE Asians have to vanilla beans. Its fragrance is much appreciated when making desert, esp. those involving coconut milk. Also used as a natural food coloring, with the additional perfumey benefit. Rarely, if ever, is it eaten uncooked/raw. Also used in cooking rice (Chupa King's post above).
