It's actually backwards. It's common knowledge that one way to mitigate internal breakdown is to pick mature green. It's even mentioned in IFAS' "Mango Growing in the Home Landscape" article (scroll down to "Internal Breakdown" http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/mg216).

I know this from experience -- having picked mangoes at various stages over the past few harvest seasons. Flavor is often enhanced by picking mature green.

OS is one mango that is very prone to internal breakdown disorders and should be picked mature green.

This picking green $hit is the cause of a lot of the tasting issues.



Sirry, I disagree 100%.  Any mango picked green will hae some level of acidity that one picked tree ripe wont have.  I have been picking these for many years at Walter's and have had the ability to try them at many stages.  To me and most who purchase from him (and those I have personally sold to, tree ripe rules.

I have eaten a ton of mangoes picked mature green from ZHPP, totally different experience and not usually in a good way.  If you look backbat many reciews on Gardenweb of the newer varieties that were numbers before they were named, the fruit were not given high praise.  The Sweet Tart and Pineapple Pleasure, to name a couole, were horrid picked green.  Pina Colada could have been sold to the school board as teacher's chalk.

Bottom line, to each their own...BUT...mist that I have sold to  and shared with very much prefer tree ripe.  These are mangoes to be eaten niw, not shipped commercially.


I have to agree 100% with bsbullie. The whole reason I started planting my own trees was that I was tired of under ripe/picked green fruit. Now I have 150 mango trees alone.

Looks like the tree was bought from Fruitscapes  and then shipped to gozp.

Pineapple Punch?  Fruit Cocktail?  Please ensure the accuracy of the names before postinv.  It will avoid confusion, the spreading of inaccurate names and incessant telephone calls to a wholesale nursery that they do not want to field.

Fruit Cocktail I've seen in this post and 2 FB posts in the last 2 days.  It seems to be 28-18 from zill.

I will change the note here, but wonder why Peach Cobbler was not on the list. that has more citrus flavor than most "labeled orange" mangoes.

I agree with you. PC is my fav for citrus flavor. Taste like tangerine to me.
But I also have not tried orange sherbet or orange essence yet.

I bought 2 from Fruitscapes in 1 gal. About 40 had had just been delivered from Zill's. They had a yellow tag that said Triple sec, but inside the pot was a small square that said Seacrest. Fruitscapes confirmed it was Seacrest.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Australian atemoya
« on: December 01, 2017, 01:30:08 PM »
It is not a geffner for sure because she has a geffner for sale.

Nah, it is a different cultivar being called Australia here. Steve said that it is a cultivar from Australia that he received from a grower in California. Tim and Australia are two different varieties being propagated by Fruitscapes. I think both came from "Tim" in California but I could be wrong about that.

I bought every atemoya Steve was growing this year and there wasnt one called Australian. He said Tim was a Australian atemoya.
Anyway I just text him to make sure and he said it's the same.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: FOR SALE: 25 gal Ugly Betty
« on: October 27, 2017, 07:48:56 PM »
Hi.  Just saw this.  Thinking of getting an Ugly Betty.  just curious - why did you sell it?  production issues, size.  I am in east Boynton,, just east of Congress.
Thanks,

Just taking a guess but Rob hates carry. So by his description above, it might be the reason.

I on the other hand tried it for the first time this year and I though it was outstanding.

I had 2 this year grown on Pine Island. Never had this before. The flesh was all white, the skin was green with white specks. Had a resinous green taste. The taste was phenomenal.
