Thank you Simon. I found a seller and ordered some seeds (30 seeds of 10 varieties). 
Does CAC  or Cat Hoa Loc do well in CA? I will have them in pots at first from seeds and was thinking of getting a grafted CAC tree to give it a head start.

I grow blueberries for the last 10 yrs and have bountiful harvest so I know how to work with soil ph for mangoes.  I also have cherimoya and atemoya and longan that seems to do well so far. In the coming years I should know more if any of these are  good for our climate. I also bought sapodilla, soursop, June plum, and sugar apples, Pickering, and Nam doc mai tree in pots, ordered from FL.

Cheers,

Nga

I'm new to mango growing. Thank you for this post. I learned a lot after reading the info. on this forum.

I would like to buy the following mango varieties as a fruit or seed. Please let me know how I can obtain them. I would pay for the fruits or seeds and your time to find them for me. I live in SF Bay Area in CA (zone 10a) so shipping may be an issue. If you know a source for these mangoes or seeds please help.

Cac, Xoi  Cat Hoa Loc , Nam Doc Mai, Nam Doc Mai #4, Honey Kiss, Maha Chanok, Butter cream,  SugarLoaf (E-4), Florigon , PPK, Lemon Zest, Orange Sherbet, Coconut cream, M4, Pina Colada, Cotton Candy, Pim Seng Mun, Pram Kai Meu.

I have a manilla queen in the ground and it is doing well. I don't know how old it is as the owner didn't know. Bought it from Vista and it was about 4 ft w/ a big trunk.  I have longan, cherimoya, and atemoya and they are doing excellent in the ground. I also bought 6 manilla mango trees from LaVerne Nursery 3gal and waiting for them to establish roots before putting them in the ground. In March I got two and in late May I transplant 1 in a pot and one in the ground and both have not had any new leaves. The leaves seem to be burned bc of salt water or sock? When I took the tree out of the pot the root ball was not attached to any soil, thus my new manilla I just got yesterday (4 of them) will stay in their 3 gal pot until next spring.
I don't know how to graft and I already made a novice mistake of buying a few trees from FL with turpentine rootstocks.
The plan is my gardener knows how to graft so he's going to help me.  I recently took out many trees to make room for the mangoes.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Everyone,
Thank you for this useful forum on tropical fruits and mango growing information.
After reading through the many threads on here (thank you Simon) from experienced mango growers I am in search of the following mango varieties as a fruit or seed. Please let me know how I can obtain them. I would pay for the fruits or seeds and your time to find them for me. I live in SF Bay Area in California so shipping may be an issue. If you know a source for these mangoes or seeds please help.

Cac, Xoi  Cat Hoa Loc , Nam Doc Mai, Nam Doc Mai #4, Honey Kiss, Maha Chanok, Butter cream,  SugarLoaf (E-4), Florigon , PPK, Lemon Zest, Orange Sherbet, Coconut Cream, Pina Colada, Cotton Candy, Pim Seng Mun, Pram Kai Meu. 

Thanks in advance for your help.

I made a begginer mistake and bought a few trees from FL with turpentine rootstocks. I don't now how to graft so I figure the seedlings from the polyembryonic seeds are my best bet. In the Bay Area there are some mango trees and they all look like Manilla but I don't know for sure as it was from a Youtube video.  I have cherimoya and atemoya and they do well in the ground over the winter. I have a Manilla queen in the ground since March 2020 and it seems to do well with 6 inches of new shoots and healthy leaves. Will see how it does over the winter.

Kind regards,
Nga

Hi Simon,
Thank you for all your helpful info. I learned a lot from reading your blog. I'm in zone 10a in the SF Bay Area so not ideal for mango but I have one in the ground and it seems to be doing ok so far. It's a Manilla queen I got from Exotica.

Did you have any good source for getting your mango seeds or fruits? I'm looking for fruits or seeds of the varieties you mentioned here.

Does anyone have the following to sell and can ship to CA? I'd pay for the fruits but if not, the seeds are ok too. I'd like the followings:  Sugarloaf,  PPK (Lemon meringue), Lemon zest, Orange Sherbet, Coconut Cream, Pina Colada, Honey Kiss, Sweet Tart, CAC, Florigon,  M4, Cotton Candy.
 Thank you in advance.
Nga
