ok im glad im not the only one who noticed this.  I can see how c.c. tags can get mixed up easily.  I think it had a similar artificial coconut taste to coco cream but not as sun tan lotion coconuty flavor if that makes sense.

I haven't heard anything about c.c. mangoes this year. Did anyone get to try them?  I had one off my tree and picked up a lot of coconut flavor,  Im wondering if I got a mislabeled tree since most the descriptions online are just intense sweet.

Well, 3 of the 4 cuttings sent to me by achetadomestica struck, and all 5 seeds sprouted as well, growing nice and strong.

The cuttings:

The seedlings:

As for the seedlings, Iím at a bit of a loss as to how to manage them (crop-wise). I know they come from a line of seed-grown Jatropha that have all turned out edible, but Iím still a little wary of eating their nuts when they start bearing. Logic tells me to just taste Ďem and stop eating if I get gastric trouble, but that only accounts for the phorbol esters. Curcin is the more dangerous toxin by far, but I couldnít find much information on it out there. What are the symptoms of curcin poisoning? And what is the treatment? Can I just do the whole ďeat 1 the first day, 2 the second, etc.Ē that I would usually do, or is that still capable of poisoning me if the nuts have curcin? Should I just trust that the seedling nuts will be okay and go hogwild eating them?

The edible ones should be edible in their raw state (and I think the parent tree is such), but some toxic types can be eaten roasted... does that take care of the curcin or just the phorbol esters?

I already have the cuttings of the confirmed-edible parent, and I can easily get more cuttings once those trees mature (so... perhaps I donít need the seedlings?), but I kinda still wanna take care of the seedlings and use them as crops.

Anyone here got any advice?

I would only deal with cuttings.

...Had one of Shot's Bombay's that we picked up yesterday. Amazing! Very popular with friends. Looking forward to trying the Gudang Ginsu soon.

Bombay is one of the only mangoes Ive hated every time Ive tried it.  I know people like it I just can't understand why.

thats a nice lawn, are your sprinklers hitting the tree? Could that be contributing to the fungus?

I dont think this mango season has been that great so far, but the coconut creams I got from the Campbell were good and I've heard good things about the mangoes coming from Squams farm. You might have gotten unlucky or It might be that shipping is effecting the fruit.  Your description of carrie sounds about right.

I believe that ECHO in Florida sells it.

You are correct, but our online bookstore is currently down.
