Have a red center lime fruiting for the first time, wondering when to pick them? they are about the size of a small egg right now fell full but firm almost black in color

My Fairchild is always one of my best mangos! everyone loves them, maybe not a top 5 every year but always a top 10 and it handles everything thrown at it.... great tree everyone should have 1

Not sure what this mango is but i will need to taste test first before i buy

Fire the lawn guy

Chintalala is a mutation of a mamey sapote (I forget which cultivar). The fruits are small, about the size of a small canistel, but packed with flavor. The tree produces twice a year, in spring and fall. As with other mutations (eg, the variegated guavaa), some branches revert back to the non-mutated version.

The fruit is only known in El Salvador as far as I know, and even in El Salvador it's not widely known. It was one of the best tasting mameys that I've had. I brought back budwood and grafted to a green sapote rootstock that I happened to have laying around. All grafts took and are doing quite well :-). In a few years I should have some chintalala fruits :-). I'm curious to see if it performs the same here in FL.

Jeff I know this is old but did your Chintalala ever fruit? and if so was/is it the same?

You can just cut it down to 4 feet or so and then you can keep it under control

Itís Seacrest. They decided to change the name.

The names are getting worse and worse. Seacrest was an excellent name.
