We all know taste is subjective but ive never tasted carrot in one, it was more reminiscent of apricot to me.  I have only had a few though.

The Kathys I have had this year have been fantastic. I still favor sweet tart but Kathy is number two for me in the Indochinese profile.

Don't hold back!

I purchased two Angie from Alex this season that were outstanding. Picked and ripened properly, on the firm side of ripe and made it to the top tier for me. Top tier but not top 10.

Is it getting full sun?

CC is an awesome mango. Keep trying.

I've never had a great Sweet Tart, still waiting.

Same goes for Sweet tart.

 It is a science to pick and ripen them for optimal flavor but once you get it figured out hold on to your socks.
I like them a little on the tart side (and have squirrels) so I pick them as soon as they start to turn yellow and ripen on the counter. Of course the longer you let them go the sweeter they are but still a punch in the mouth, without a doubt my favorite INDO/Chinese flavored mango.

So I bought a 3 gallon ppk/lemon meringue mango tree sometime in Feb, I put it in the ground and it has yet to put on any new growth. The tree overall looks healthy but I am puzzled as to why the thing has not grown at all in the past 5 months or so. I have been giving it water since we have not been getting any but I also tried not watering it for a couple weeks to see if that would make it start growing, nothing happened. What do you guys think? All of my other mango trees are putting on new growth like crazy, they are however mature trees.

I am thinking about giving it until july/august and then it is getting replaced with another ppk.

I planted a healthy looking 3gl cogshall two years ago and it did not budge for a whole year, now it is growing like a wild fire. It is likely just getting established and putting all of it's energy into rooting, Next summer it should go nuts. Be careful not to over fertilize it. I have killed several you mango trees that way, Hard lesson to learn.

Just had my 1st coconut cream mango , I was  anxiously  Awaiting to taste the rich coconut taste that we love in Certain Mangoes, none of Up ( my family ) tasted a hint of Coconut 🤧, My Pickering blew that one away .

I hope the others I purchased have that intense coconut taste that folks have described .

The southern Blush was good had a classic mango taste .

Like any other mango it can have off years. Mine so far have just been ok this year but the later ones will get better as it goes.

Southern Blush is a very good classic mango, supposed to get MBBS but im keeping my tree. Coconut cream lives up to the hype.

I've yet to eat an M-4 but I can say without a doubt that the Sugarloaf is no disappointment. It was my personal favorite of the new verities I was able to sample last season. Depending on how long you leave it on the counter it went from tart pineapple to pinacolada  to "wholly coconut" when it was wrinkly. just my opinion for what it's worth.

What about Guava mango?

Upright and vigorous. Top tier and good disease resistance. Seems to be a good and consistent producer but my experience is with this one tree in my yard.

Mangos, lots of mangos.

Have you considered grafting 3 or 4 different varieties to it? I would jut try and keep the growth habits in line with each other more so than season.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Hail storm in brevard ...
« on: March 30, 2019, 09:48:27 PM »

So what was said to be a once in 20 years hail storm took out about 75% of my mangos. The ones that didn't get knocked off got bruised or cut and are starting to get rotten spots on them and fall off. Might be more like 90% of the crop when it's all said and done. Was anyone else affected?

What did you not like about the Cogshall?  I believe it is one that is supposed to be resistant to MBBS.

Orange sorbet grafted to Lemon Zest starting to push.

I had three sunrise trees and one ugly betty that gave me tons of fruit last year.  I am in Brevard county. The fruit were clean and this year they are just now flowering. The sunrise trees in particular were very productive and had a pretty extended season.

How is the fruit on both of those?

What do you spray on your LZ for the powdery mildew?

is Dwarf Hawaiian the only cultivator your going to put on or just the first one?  I don't have that one yet but like that it is an early variety as well as tasting good. How is the disease resistance?

If it has a coconut flavor profile Iím in , is there any 7 Gal Of The M4?

So much for only 3  ;D
E-4 is really coconutty too

If you're out east I have a 15 gal M-4 for sale.

 Go for the 15gl.  It's a slow grower.
