Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: 15 days later my next Zill HP adventure
« Last post by Squam256 on Today at 03:51:09 PM »
I tasted it (courtesy of fellow gardener who brought back some from Florida and was kind enough to share with me). It was very sweet and piney, reminded me of Kesar. those who had this at its peak might be able to confirm. just now that Zills is putting out boat load of buckets of this variety, it might be peak time to try. locals should hit Zills and get few and confirm their findings. Kesar here in So Cal so far has not been able to get brix enough to compare to India's. this might be an alternative.

It does not taste like Kesar. It belongs in the classic-acidic group with fruit punch and Zill-80.
Piney like kesar, Fruit Punch is not piney I believe.

Gets a faint resinous component (as does 36-8) at certain stages of ripeness but itís nothing like Kesar.

Thanks for the video. has anyone else tried this?

the one I had was not watery, not sure why anyone would say "watery" to a mango, it should be called Juicy, no?

When you were at ZHPP, did anyone happen to say whether they would have any Cotton Candy mangos available anytime soon???  That's one fruit I'd like to taste!

Didnít see any this morning, & I forgot to ask 😓😣. Tons of crates of Orange Sherbet, half a crate of Van Dyke, & an almost full container of 36-8 (I think was the number).

If it's 36-8...does anyone have comments on this one?  I don't have any notes on this.  Thx.

This is one that got named ďIndiaĒ. Gary likes itís commercial potential. Iím wary of it because of the Zill-80 parentage that it shares with Fruit Punch, and this potentially itís susceptibility to MBBS and rot.

It has an outstanding shelf life though, very productive and good enough flavor that we're Growing it for evaluation.

If thats the case, sulcata grove has made a r3view of india variety.
U may want to check this out, behl.

Note, it has big pit, but bigger size and superb taste makes up for it. Very juicy!

I have not considered it in the top class although its good.  On par with Orange Essence and Kathy.  It definitely has some characteristics of an Indian mango.  I know in the past, the people from India really liked it.

Waren, I called Zills (nursery, not fruit stand) and they have boat load of these for sale to evaluate at $2/lb.

Leaf miners love the new flush of green

Time your oil spray as soon as new leaves start 

I cut damaged leaves off as soon as I see tunnels and dispose properly
