How many of you here have cold-hardy citrus that you grew from seed?
I ask because this could lead to new hybrids. Seedlings don't always have the same genetic mix as their parents. Sometimes a seedling will have better tasting fruit or be more cold hardy.
It's also a simple cheap way (although time & effort intensive) to propagate more plants.

PSM is a solid recommendation as well. I enjoy it much more than NDM. Though I think NDM fruits can be larger and may be more productive. Avoid NDM on root stock #4 (more incidence of fruit splitting). I can only speak about my experience on that Okrung takes a while for the tree to mature to flower and bear fruit versus other popular Asian varieties.

The atrophied seed is very likely not viable. The larger seed looks polyembryonic to me so you should take care with that one. Good luck with the seed.

high sweetness, no acid, no piney, turpentine or citrus notes, just sugared mango flavour with low fibre

Pim Sen Mun and Okrung have that to my taste buds. Doesn't crack when ripening for me like NDM.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: 36-8 Mango
« Last post by bsbullie on Today at 07:39:10 AM »
36-8 had a very mellow rose component to me. I’ve been told that’s the Indian resin component and I enjoyed it very much

Fruit cocktail tasted like a mellow medley of flavors. Also enjoyable... the first one around when it was green. I had another after it turned yellow. At that point the medley of flavors was a mere hint and the mango otherwise tasted like cheese. I couldn’t finish a bite and my kids took one bite and spit it out. I kept the seed because I remembered how good the first one was...

E4 was great. Sweet and clean, cooonutty. Kept its flavor throughout multiple stages of ripeness.

Creme brûlée was more sweet and seemed to just be sweet. Enjoyable still. Never tried a cotton candy but it seemed to me like candy mango.

If you never tasted it,  how can you comment on its taste?

What condition do you recommend for winter/overwintering? I am +- same zone as you..

thanks, Daniel

In winter you should not water them. Keep the land very dry. Leaves will drop and growth will be on hold. It's not because of temperature but light. Mist the plants to take water but that is a little bit tricky inside the home where is very dry. Also a hard water will accumulate salts which will kill the plant.
