Ya can't argue with success, way to go!

See the Haden I transplanted last year. Your tree is a baby compared to this one. We hacked every leafing branch off and dug a good root ball. Transplanted it and every other day for the first 30 days I drained a 55 gallon drum of water mixed with Super Thrive onto the base of the tree. The two photos show the treeís recovery not even 10 months later. Didnít show one sign of stress at any point. IMO mango trees are amongst the easiest trees to transplant. For me, Mamey is the most difficult

Florida or Hawaii cultivars would work for you. The question only is "how do you get them?" According to Luc everything there in Pto. Vallarta are seedlings.
Hi Oscar! Luc is right here there's only seedlings, I already secured a couple one is with a beautiful elegant long pear shape and ok flavor, and another very good oily flesh with a combination of green /black skin when ripe, this one falls from the tree when is time and doesn't bruises at all, about how to get the scions I'm trading with some forum members,
Do the scions get there fresh enough to take?
When I received them in just a few days yes...
Hey Raul. Oro Negro is growing nicely for me here South of Miami. I don't do much for it. Barely any mulch. Rarely fertilize, and it has grown thick bushy and green. Hoping for fruits this year. I can send some scions if you like.
Raul, a Hawaiian variety that has grown well for me but not fruited yet is Malama one of taste test winners in Hawaii. Also has taken cold this year 30F for a week now and still looks great with just over head frost cloth! Looks like it's going to flower this year too! 8)
Hi Scott, Malama sounds like a winner, thanks for the suggestion il try to get some scions

Geez. At that price I might buy them. Hahahahaha.
Dupuis is the best tasting early variety. The hybrids like Brogdon and Oro Negro would be worth a try. Maybe Catalina and Jose Antonio. Maybe you can set up some sort of informal review board and find the best seedling trees around your region. I bet you would discover some other really great fruits along the way.

I am really interested in this species as well. This link is a pdf download.
[/quote thanks for the PDF Josh, has nice information!
