This is my recently pruned Mallika espalier. I'm looking to put multiple varieties on the tree. Any suggestion on varieties? I would like something small and bushy if possible. Thanks for the suggestions!

I have tasted Mallika when it was excellent and when it tasted like a carrot but its not my favorite either that's why I'm thinking of top working the two vigorous branches about twelve inches after the 90 degree bend maybe with some of the variety's you mentioned

Here is a picture of the root stimulator I purchased.

Thank you , no fruit yet.The center needs to be thinned out to make it more defined but i'm holding off pruning till  I see if it fruits this year. do you notice the two lowest branches seem to be stunted and the two above it are taking over. I'm thinking of top working those vigorous two branches to other varieties to see if that will give the lower branches a boost ,It had a center leader at one time and when i cut it out the two vigorous ones that you see took off, maybe to much.

My Chock Anon has a flower also.

This year overall was kind of a down year for mangoes. But these were tops IMO...

2. Bombay
3. LZ / PPK they tasted virtually identical this year to me. Lz a little bland compared to years past
4. Edward
5. Rosigold - about 75% tasted really good - super high sugar content, almost like a cake frosting with smooth silky flesh, zero fiber, even around the seed.
6. Aeromanis (Harumanis?) - Had this one at the end of May at the fruit and Spice park in Homestead. Tasted really clean and sweet with good acid component. Was wondering where I could get some budwood since it does not seem to be propigated anymore...

As Nighthawk has stated, Carlos stopped short on many of his recommendations. I'm wondering what the final decision was on the Oro Negro.

Is anyone growing Oro negro ,if so what do you think?

Nighthawk makes excellent points,I am very interested in the poll if you don't like the poll don't respond.

Cool, I just Bought Maha at the Fairchild Mango Festival.

I will try and call the park and ask them what they know

If you search up Rataul Mango there is a story about its disputed origin between India and Pakistan.

I sampled it at the Fruit and Spice park in the Redlands it was marked Rataul.

No, Rataul.

I recently sampled a Rataul mango and was wondering if anyone could add any thought as to the characteristics such as disease resistance, production, tree vigor, and season. It was a great tasting mango, but I never heard of it other than an article talking about the disputed origin between India and Pakistan.
