Carla is quite good and one that we’re trialing for production/MBBS resistance. Hoping it can be an alternative to Kent and other prone mid/late season varieties.

The budwood for our “Jumbo Kesar” was sourced from Fairchild. It is just a regular Kesar. Not sure if or where the real Jumbo Kesar exists in Florida at this point

No. Looks like Palmer.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Cat Chu mango

Perhaps slightly off topic, but has anyone had any luck fruiting Hoa Loc here?  I've had a tree in the ground for several years and nuthin.  I'm slowly converting it to Cat Chu (CAC).

I’ve fruited Hoa Loc. It’s more Thai flavored.

Cac/Cat Chu is much better and most people from Vietnam have never had it. They only know Hoa Loc.

I wonder if this variety tastes similar to Xiao Cat Hoa Loc?






Or CAC/COC




Between these other two Vietnamese varieties, CAC/COC is much better because it has a richer fruitier taste.

Simon

Cac, or what we know in the US as such, and Cat Chu are the same mango.

A shot in the dark here but could be Beverly

Agree, probably Beverly.

This  applies to most of the Texas avocados we’ve grown honestly.

White Piri is pretty amazing.

Baptiste produces very well and consistently for us. Pretty clean fruit also.

Hello Sir,

I wanted to personally thank you for the resource of Mango information you've posted on your website.  I will definitely be stopping by this season.  I really appreciate your website and I look forward to getting some trees, scions and fruit from you.

Thank you for the positive feedback, appreciate it

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Fake Mahachanok?
« on: July 11, 2019, 10:17:55 AM »
Appears to be the real thing.

The “fake” was a mango we’ve been calling Sia Siam which has raised leaves.

The Gaylours from our tree have been superb this year. Complex Indian flavor. Large fruit too

Phoenix is definitely special.

Gaylour “looks” poly but I haven’t checked seed. Being “3000 years” in cultivation would support the notion.  Have you or anyone looked?

I checked once and it was mono.

Yi Xuan is outstanding. Hopefully we have better luck with it regarding the splitting but not holding my breath.

Survanarheka/Sundari is like a mild Bombay.

Most of our Providence fruit rot every year

Might be Chokanon

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Lil’ Gem mango?
« on: June 26, 2019, 10:17:12 AM »
I’ve had some good Little Gems but I suspect it’s a mango that doesn’t respond well to being picked green.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Raw Honey Mango
« on: June 26, 2019, 10:15:30 AM »
There is also the Mango Madu or Indonesian honey mango that was sold by Fairchild at the mango festival a couple years ago. It’s supposed to have pockets of honey like nectar. Still waiting for mine to fruit.

That’s mangifera lalijiwa . We have a producing one and It’s pretty mediocre.

Saw this in Merritt Island last year.

I suspect some kind of mite.
