Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Best late season mango
« on: Today at 12:33:49 PM »
I think M4 and cotton candy are supposed to be late. Never tried them but people that have said they are good.
Can’t beat the old Keitt when it comes to late but it just stinks that it has MBBS or rot issues. Mine included.

Bruce

M4 is definitely on the list! But I agree, old keitt is a good late variety with some huge fruits and good productivity.

Keitt is a good tasting mango, huge and is a very late type.  I heard that the bacterial issues are only common with young trees, once they mature they stay clean.

Nope...go visit Walter Zill and see his Keitts planted in the 1950s.  He loses a lot of fruit every year due to disease.

Just visited someone with a very nice Keitt tree, no issues at all, super clean fruit and huge in size.

Yeah John, the one thing I dislike about honey kiss is its fruit size. Never tried a neelam mango.

How about this suggestion against fungus and bacteria?

Would this combination work against fungus and powdery mildew?

Is this a good method to remove fungus or other tree related issues?

I think you'll be much better off with a dwarf Hawaiian similar flavor to Julie. Dwarf size and very precocious.
I'm willing to have that fight for Julie because my wife was raised on coconut milk and Julie mangoes. In my opinion even if you could see the ocean from your doorstep you're still going to have to spray for anthracnose and powdery mildew so you might as well just get schooled up on it


Yeah the flavor is exceptional.
I see that you planted yours next to a wall, was it because of space?  Having full sun and in a ventilated area should help against fungus right?

I am gonna give this tree a try, it is healthy and it is branching nicely.  Wish me all the best! 
Had also taught about a graham, but it drops a bunch of fruit and the tree is not small.

Julie is deliciously spicy, small, compact, precocious and it blooms multiple times.

Cotton candy

If it's going to stress you out and cause you to lose sleep just call the people that you got it from and ask them to swap for another  variety. does it look like a clean tree if it's ate up with anthracnose I don't know why you would purchase it

My tree looks fine, take a look.  Is my location somewhat safe against fungus?  I am located between i95 and turnpike.



13
Can the fungus from Julie spread to other mango trees?
I am not too far west, located in between i95 and Turnpike.

M4 is also a Keitt seedling but its not in the classic flavor group like the above varieties.   Its probably tops in the coconut group but has shown some signs of the bad traits of Keitt.  I would not count it out however if wanting the coconut flavor.


What are the bad traits that M4 has shown?

PPK and Sweet Tart definitely not compact trees or anything remotely compact.  Julie, for the most part, is a fungus magnet mess in SFla.

Is Julie that bad?  Just bought a Julie tree, should I plant it away from the other mango trees to prevent the fungus from spreading?   
Where should I plant the tree, in a well ventilated area?

Too me, it seems like a coconut cream and a diamond mango.

Have never tasted the CC, hopefully this is a CC!

If the first is Coco Cream, the tree would make it easy to identify.

There arent that many Diamond trees out there (few propagate it and poor fruit quality).

The first one is about 5 inches, the tree has some weird branches going down and it seems to be a dwarf or very slow grower.  Waiting for the fruit to fully ripe, it keeps on turning yellow.

The second one is about 8 inches, the taste was rather bland, fiber less, juicy, and a bit sweet.

That would be a very small coconut cream at only 5".

Unfortunately, with all the rain we've had a lot of mangoes will have a washed out flavor.

Getting pictures of the trees, showing growth habit, and the leaves may help identify the fruit.

Here is a picture of the leaves and tree.

You should try a julie mango, it has some kick to it.

CARRIE!





I was fortunate to acquire some excellent specimens of this variety from our friend zands.  Personally I find it an excellent mango.  Fiberless, sweet, and juicy.  I don't understand why some mango lovers find it objectionable.  Maybe it's a genetic thing, or something like the aversion to papaya or cilantro.  (I like them both, too!)  Zands' tree is around 12 years old with a stout trunk, but it's only maybe ten feet tall.  This is a big plus for the variety.

The flavor is rich and categorized as "Indian Alphonso."  Spicy with pleasant resin nearer to the skin, which is extremely thin.  Deep orange, very soft flesh, as you can see.  The flavor might be described as "spicy canned peaches with a little resin."  I wish I could do a side-by-side comparison with Angie, which is considered a Carrie substitute or maybe even an improvement.  I'll try to get some Angies from my old house in the coming weeks.

Gotta love carrie when picked in the right stage, that deep orange color looks delish.

They say that coconut cream and carrie can be picked green without any flavor loss.

Can you guys please help me out with these two mangos, what kind is it?

First one has a bumpy skin, red blush at the top and yellow blush at the bottom and tree is small.

Second is yellow and green, smooth skin, long shaped somewhat flat and tree is large.

Thanks guys!

Sweet Tart is not always small and some trees are very productive.  Its variable.  Flesh is fiber free but on the soft side.  Taste is outstanding.

Orange Sherbet fruit is sweet and a tad smaller in size than LZ.  Texture is a touch on the softer side and can have a slight propensity for jelly seed in certain locations (should be able to be controlled with calcium).

Cac, also goes by Coc from certain nursery(ies), has an excellent complex flavor profile.  Its sweet but not oversweet.  Out if these four, it has the most firm flesh.

Seacrest has melting flesh with a classic mango flavor profile.  The most boring of them all.  Production appears to be average to slightly above average.

You may want to consider Son Pari or Phoenix.

Great info!
