pink namdocmai mango??
« on: April 15, 2018, 07:14:29 AM »
I have never seen pink namdocmai mango, and you?

And the normal yellow namdocmai is always gold/yellow...we have so many tree's and they are yellow, no chemical...green one is namdocmai green and is not same.

But is that very yellow one really poisonous?

yes their is also now Namdogmai purple.. 'new' breed from Taiwan, very large, good purple color.  Heard good things, have some grafted trees, set me back around 300 or 400 I think.

Good thing I decided not to buy any ripen Nam Doc Mai mango at the supermarkets in Dubai. It's the same color as the one in the video. It looks too perfect to be naturally ripen on the tree or by propane gas.

Plus, I can't justify spending $20-25 for two mangoes here.

Yes purple namdocmai i have seen but not with pink blush.

The very white/yellow one is sold out of season, now i know how they do it so will never eat it again.

2 namdocmai cost 40 baht is 1.3us$...dubai must be very expensive for importtax.

I don't think the attractiveness of the mango comes from ripening chemicals, at the commercial farms each mango is bagged individually and picked off the tree before ripe.  I could not handle more than 30 seconds of that video... they, the translator, and some random old lady on the side of the road would not be my source of mango information.  :)

the black marks on the mangoes I believe are caused by sap, or from fungus, or from the fungus growing on pierced areas of flesh from insects.  All 3 problems solved by bagging.
