What we can agree on here is that the fruit grown in one area's conditions will taste different than one grown in another, and will also be variable across people's random palates.

Not counting that not every fruit from the same tree will taste the same, especially at different stages of ripening.

If you really want to know a fruit, taste multiple samples on multiple trees grown in different places and then you'll really get a feel for the variety overall.

Or just taste the same fruit from your location at different ripeness.. because you're not going to grow a orange in Florida that taste like it was grown in Cali

Jacob, You can pick up a 3 gallon tree from benders nursery in Davie for like $35.00... plenty of other nurseries in Broward have them... Wild Flamingo just do a quick google search for local nurseries... A grafted tree will give you fruit with a few years as a seed grown tree may wait 5+ years to fruit or longer
                     Good luck and welcomer to the forum

Same here..... kinda sucks

JF, what are the "problems" with Honey Kiss, Pickering & "other" Zills mangos?

I have not personally tried the Angie mango, but I have a Carrie mango tree for like 6 years, and i have always found it to be consistant, wonderful mango. We do not suffer the fungus issues of Florida though.  Have also never had issue with the sappy resinous taste, but i always wash my mangoes before i eat them so maybe that is why. Carrie mango is exceptionally juicy, and has a wonderful spicy undertone that is completely missing from your common commercial varities

I think that "spicy" undertone might be cat urine 

Jose, Don't sleep on the Honey Kiss! as late as they get and when picked and eaten at the right time they are as good as any! Compact growth habit and bears more fruit then you can handle!

And is not only better tasting than Keitt but does not contain the problems Keitt can have or be susceptible to.

Maybe he should just plant 6-7 Carrie trees...

Rob, I didn't know you were parting with your prized collection of Carrie trees....

Adam, I have the tops growing just want something better and different
