Mango...Any idea?
« on: May 18, 2017, 03:30:32 PM »
A friend gave me 2 of these mangoes, the person that owned the tree just bought the house a few months ago and knows nothing about mangoes...tree looks about to be 4 years old maybe? by the looks of the picture she took. One is turning a little bit of yellow and the other is still green. Its definitely a roundish shape mango....mauritius lychee for reference 

Any guesses?

The situation in Florida is that >>>
By default all backyard mango mystery mangoes were grown from seed. They are not known grafted varieties. Not until genetic testing proves otherwise. I have spoken to too many backyard "amateurs" to think otherwise.

Oh its definitely grafted, here's a picture of the tree she sent to my phone ( not a great photo) but its not a seedling...she saw the graft its just no label on the tree...the original owner forgot the variety  ::)
 


Thanks Squam...its definitely possible, the shape looks similar.

Looks like a softball.  I'm not sure but has a profile that definitely resembles that of a Cushman.
