It's small but pretty.....does dwarf Hawaiian taste good?
Yes, I like it quite a bit though it has fiber. It's likely descended from Julie and the flavor bears some resemblance. Has some spice to it.
I've always been curious. Are the early mangoes east or in loxahatchee? And is there something special about the location that yours always seem to come in weeks if not months before most?
These were grown east in West Palm Beach.
Yes, location has a great deal to do with it, with horticultural practices playing a role in addition. Here we are less than 2 miles from the ocean. My relative humidity is considerably lower than those areas further west, and the trees respond very well to the low pH sugar sand soil that exists here. The dryer conditions help stimulate some of the trees to throw early bloom, as early as October/November for some of them. But nighttime lows also don't go as low as the "west of 95" areas, which means that fruit that sets in December will develop faster and often be ready by spring.
