Making one yocan might be a little cheaper but a lot more work you can find a hoop house pipe bending some pipe and maybe 3 mil plastic and lastly all the gear fit test the pipes and Wood for the ends

Even though hand pollinating a lot more work . It has a better chance of being a cross you might like more but still chance of random undesirable traits . They normally select male flowers in the morning and look female flowers later on the same day . It may be possible save the pollen usually what they would do put in a jar seal it with some silicon gel and put it in the refrigerator but I don't know how well works with mango pollen.

But you make a hybrid with Polyembryonic but you need find a way rule out the clones . What some do is use monoembryonic as a mother plant and use Polyembryonic as father in the cross . The next thing is how much effort do you want to put into it . You can find a whole bunch of them start paintings random seeds and leaving it through chance or hand pollinate .

They usually try to use monoembryonic mango varieties because a lot easier to make new hybrids .depends on how you want to do it there's the easy way in a harder way . Because monoembryonic seeds always different from the mother plant easier to guarantee a new hybrid with cross pollination.

The bear fruit on old branches and new branches as well it cold sensitive so you might want to protect it or big pot so you can move it around

We are just south of San Francisco in zone 10a, in a little micro climate where we do not often get fog, but do get wind.  It doesn't get terribly hot here very often, but the yearly low temperature is usually in the high 30's, and we do see heatwaves (relative term) in September and early October.

I've heard that there are some cultivars that will grow here, but if I am growing in a pot and seeing only a few fruit each year, that does not seem worth it.  I would welcome any opinions and cultivar suggestions, if you think it is worth trying.

Thanks.
if your information is correct then you grow in the ground . My zone is 9b hit as low 20 and mango tree all over . If it small tree you do have to protect me once temperature hits around 32

Look like a Bauhinia but I'm not sure

I decided to delete it because I don't want make someone mad .
I'm glad you brought this topic up actually. Someone on FB groups, maybe you, is making same claims? I think Miami Fruit has misidentified their fruit. But let's see a photo that can prove they have the real deal? BTW the Pura Vida avocado is at least twice as long as the avocado in their photos, which i believe to be Russell's.
I really don't like Facebook only used it trying get some dragon fruit cuttings but they didn't respond until I posted pics all the cuttings I got from spaugh . Then never used it again 😂 🤣

I believe pura vida avocado was a sport from Russell avocado . I'm not willing to pay $47
box for avocados only to get a mutated avocado . The story about it can found https://miamifruit.org/products/longneck-avocado .

The only one I believe be worst one to use would be Plinia Pitrantha Branca because it like low HP but may benefit if Plinia Pitrantha Branca if it was grafted onto a different rootstock

And if it's not ripen enough it give green chlorophyll type taste and very hard to eat the flesh .
The longing you grow it the better you get on timing it . once it starts beginning to ripen they can ripen really quickly the textures will be something similar to persimmon

Yeah when it gets soft is ready when the best . Get ready red , soft and kind of shiny if over ripens they'll start fermenting a little .
