Title: Mango varieties under consideration 4 top working because of warm winter trend?
Post by: bovine421 on October 17, 2020, 03:44:37 AM
From what I understand there seems to be a long-term trend of warm Winters in South Florida. If that is the new reality. Which varieties are underperforming in this new environment? What are the recommended varieties to be planted and grafted if this is the new Normal?

It could be this is just cyclical and the cycle is about to end. I'm just trying to facilitate discussion  :)

Good question.  I've been wondering that too.

Any of the varieties you get word of that have multiple bloom periods, set multiple crops, or off season fruit would be good to try as well as any that are grown in more tropical areas than Florida.
