First Mangos of 2018
« on: March 26, 2018, 01:18:44 PM »
Started getting ripe mangos from the trees about 10 days ago:

Carabao


Rosigold



These have been good by March Mango standards (especially considering recent cold weather) with mid-teens brix.

I would just like to have a mango NOW it always makes me smile all these HORNBLOWERS who say mine is better than yours and often times they have never tasted mine, if i told you i have a cherimoya  that always blooms in jan. or real early feb. and has set fruit already you would most likely have one later that is superior .

Alex, in your mango descriptions (very cool and helpful btw!) you mention nitrogen can affect the amount of fiber in a Madame Francis mango. Does more nitrogen = more fiber or vice versa? Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback.

More nitrogen = more fiber and this can be true of other varieties as well.

Madame Francis grown in high-nitrogen muck are often fairly fibrous (and donít taste as sweet). Those grown under low N conditions have barely noticeable fiber and are actually pretty good flavor-wise.

Alex's place is the Ponderosa Ranch of mangoes.... is amazing with their 50ft tall Edward trees and a tremendous assortment of varieties. Now is probably the best time to see. Before the mango season kicks into high gear.

Avocados and other fruits grown there too.
