I have never tasted Guava mango but it seems that it is highly desirable.  So much so that a West Coast guy *extremely* requested some scions which I sent him from cookie monster's tree.

Zands and Ed this is just a delicious mango. I got my 4-5 mangoes from Walter this summer and they were all delicious. I think it's a special mango that people should at least try.
Turns yellow when fully ripe.
Get your hands on some next year. I sure will!

I havenít tried the zip ties but rubber bands really to help with a successful graft. Ed, how is the flavor profile of the guava? I always see it highly rated but rarely in a top ten list. Is it worth planting one?

** your answer may likely prompt a tree purchase
