This week mine started shooting out blossom shoots. It's happening!
Gary is also just a nice guy. Knows his stuff, especially when it comes to soil. I buy odds and ends from him though his selection is not necessarily for crazy zone pushers. He stocks mostly plants he knows will thrive in the orange county area. Good selection of those. Nice source of figs too.
Few days ago Donald Trump tweeted out that Orange Essence is his new favorite mango. That he almost felt it was named after him/ He had his groundsman plant three OE trees at his Mar Al Lago estate in Palm Beach.
A friend from this forum sent me a small NeelKiran Mango and I thought it was delicious. NeelKiran is the cross between an Alphonso and a Neelam. It had much firmer flesh than both Neelam and Alphonso and it had a Brix of 20%. It has more of an Alphonso influence for its flavor with a nice Indian resin flavor. I cut one side of the fruit and noticed that it did not have any spongy tissue but then I cut the other half and there was minor spongy tissue. I like NeelKiran a lot more than Alphonso but I still prefer Kesar more than any other Indian Mango(Indian resin flavor).
Fun! I've never really payed attention to either Edward or Cogshall, but i see 14 pages of posts on each. Edward seems to be more consistently praised than Cogshall.
Sounds about right. I think the hot, hot, day temps aren't as important as many think. At the very least 83F means it can grown far outside of the steamy summers most of the continental USA has. So,I would make it a recommended try in nor cal. My seedling has taken to the ground fast. Aultalfo when you fertilize it? develops a very dark green glossy leaf. I don't notice that on Baileys or Manila.
Its going to have to grow more for me to see if its more ornamental in the landscape as well as delicious.
Gary was tidy? All the Gary I have had this year were its usual off the chart.
LZs picked properly have been excellent. The Pineapple Pleasure have been sweeter this year, more overpowering tbe acidic component.
Tidy is perhaps local vernacular to say all is in place. Which for Gary, is great. Mine were a bit scabby but otherwise ok. 85% of their prime in taste.
Few consistent tasting mangoes this year. PPK was the most on its usual mark. Most LZ were subprime but the good were great. CC was great. Mario a pleasant surprise. Gary was tidy. Juliette was another pleasant surprise. Guava was delicious. Edward seemed better than ever. Graham was delectable. Dupuis was not its usual self but still good.

Since that is not a Florigon, you cznt make any parallel conclusions and comparisons to Florigon. In addition, you are not in a mango growing region, specifically Florida, where its an early season mango.
So you are saying it could be a Florigon seedling ?
Im just trying to figure out what it is.
Do you think it will fruit? They talked about planting mostly Jamaican fruits like Akee, Jackfruit, Mango etc. It might be interesting to see how it works out. Maybe they'll even work out a breadfruit or Jamaican nutmeg if they're lucky.
