A coworker handed me this mango and asked me to ID. His friend has two trees in his yard and they are identical. The Glenn is for sizing.

How can I tell when it is ripe. It is larger than a softball and just as hard.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / PINEAPPLE TROUBLES
« on: February 05, 2017, 01:55:42 PM »
 I had a few pineapples die last year, I think this is the culprit. Grown pretty close together and most died growing next to each other.

Pythium and Phytophthora.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Hatcher mango, when to pick
« on: August 01, 2016, 01:06:30 PM »
It seems my overpriced (before I knew any better:-[ )Hatcher mango has an off taste. It is nowhere near the flavor of the Hatcher Mango Hill fruit that I ate. It has given fruit for about 4 to 5 years. Every time I slice into one, I feel like I was had.
When is the best time to pick? ripening on the tree, just before they drop doesn't help.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / When to pick a mango.
« on: June 23, 2016, 08:02:13 AM »
I have a few new mangoes producing fruit this year for the first time. I realize Carrie must be picked early and ripen off the tree.
What other mangoes are in the same class that should be picked and ripened on the shelf?

I guess it was only a matter of time.


The fruit is from a co-worker. This tree in the past has given fruit in November.
Any ideas? It could be a seedling as it was established in his yard when he moved in.
Sweet, fibreless, not as great as a Venus.

Really like this co-worker he brought in d24 very large and has big flavor(served chilled). Somewhat citrus

I also had the "Amy" last night, the seed was pushing so the flavor was off.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Wild Blueberries and the harsh Winter
« on: June 17, 2015, 10:41:14 PM »
Folklore being just that, an abundant crop of wild blueberries for wildlife to bulk up is telling off a harsh winter ahead. That had me wondering when four of my older established mango trees really put out the fruit this year. Is this the year for a nasty named tropical storm for Florida?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / It is a miracle
« on: June 05, 2015, 03:48:30 PM »
Walked around the yard today and noticed the stress of low rainfall might of finally got the chocanon/ miracle mango to tease me with some double season activity. The fruit set this year for me was real light, maybe 15 fruit.
