Oscar is selling the seed I just got some from him .To use for rootstock. The Kai he has ,he said was a sweet one. I just tasted the fruit ,mango- plum flavor. Zill had a few fruit but was keeping the seed. That is were I tasted the fruit.
It looks nice and healthy with lovely unblemished fruit. The maprangs are in flower here at the moment. The last month of spring and first month of summer is when they are harvested in Thailand and that corresponds with here also. The first season of fruiting is often light followed by much heavier production in subsequent years. I find the taste improved if they are really mature and even if kept for a while off the tree.
Is the slow growth possibly a regional/conditional thing or is this just the case with Maprang...I imagine your tree is grafted? Is it On Maprang rootstock...also are the seeds poly?
They do look delicious. Oscar, do the think the lack of fruit is due to the trees being young, or the climate?
Very nice looking. This is my mother-in-law's favorite plant. When the tree is loaded with fruit, it looks like it was decorated for Easter. Too bad I always miss out on the season.
Congrats Oscar. Beautiful fruit and a real nice compact tree.What's the cold tolerance on them? 28/30?Thanks for the review and pics...
