The girls are headed down Saturday for visiting family and would like to pre order a box for their kin and another for us.   

What is the best way to order. They would pick up Saturday morning on way down.

Likely wouldn’t have enough for a box at the moment. Maybe just Contact us directly on Saturday to see what we have.

Does Carabao usually produce this early? Is it a different variety within the Philippines mango? I saw a Philippine tag today that said June-July. Having the Rosigold (at least 2 weeks till ripe) and looking to add another super early.

It’s the same as “Philippine”. I’d say it usually starts in May. One tree had a significant March/April crop though.

Rosa is a more consistent spring mango. Edward and Dwarf Hawaiian also.

Thanks for the mango.  They got to share with kin from Washington state and their local kin that only have had store bought prior.  Had them looking up Edward and Tropical Acres as they are new mango lovers.

The girls were proud of the mango and the younger generation is now a convert.

The Duncan I got was pretty good and we will be back when others  types ripen.

Thanks again

Here they are... Fresh off the tree today and all of 1 1/2 inch or less... Late, small, & on the ground with the storm today adding to the qty.... But of course a lot of small ones are still in the tree above... Mine are very late this year.

Who else has some mature ones in S. Florida other than Squam?

I had high hopes for my Pickering this year.  First year flowering, (year three in ground from 3 gal pot), about 6' x 6'.  In January it sent up pannicles on every branch.  She was loaded for a while. . .and then she started dropping fruit and hasn't stopped.   :(
Still some fruit left and I assume several will remain, but man, what a tease.
My Cogshall had about a 50% bloom this year, starting in late January.  Most fruits are holding on.

I think this is normal behavior for Pickering. Mine is 4 years old and about the same size as yours and set lots of fruit only to drop a lot of it. I’ll end up with 20 to 30 fruits I expect. Not bad for a tree this size. I think it’s just dropping the fruit to the point where it can sustain itself without damage. It did this last year also.

I ate a couple of fine Rosa about a week ago.  Nothing else so far.
