Tropical Fruit Discussion / Indian Spice Mangos
« Last post by starch on Today at 11:43:19 AM »
I have been eating a bunch of Sunrise mangos off my tree this summer. The flavor is really incredible: rich, citrusy, spicy, some turpenes (but not knock you over the head). Very aromatic. The only down sides to these mangos (neither of which I mind) is they are small-ish and they have a fair amount of fiber. Not turpentine level fiber, but you certainly couldn't call it fiberless or near-fiberless.

But the flavor is making me very happy.

I have had other mangos in the past that have some of these flavor characteristics, particularly the spicy flavors:
- Kesar
- Bombay
- Jakarta

What are some of your favorite mangos that also fit this bill?
DONT MESS WITH MY MANGOES, they are sacred specially when going out of season. :o :o
Pretty nutty, eh?

There's more and more appearing everyday thought it might be fungal
Jeff vs. Rob--the Battle of the Mango Titans! ;)

There is no comparison! Cookie is a man of action ...  has the best tasting mangos in south Florida,. Rob just runs his mouth
Amy, a Jakarta seedling...and I believe it is D-5 (trying to find/access my old notes).

ONLY Dwarf June-Plum fruit right away, and in a 3-gallon pot.  Regular June-Plums get huge fast, and fruit after 4-6 years.

Survival reports on various winter loss threads indicates that US119 is only marginally less hardy than a citrange.
It probably depends on climate, but in the a past I lost US119 two times when Navelina orange survived.
 It is maturing  late and is  susceptible  to rather  moderate frosts in December.
