Here is a very unusual looking mango from Brazil. Due to new censorship rules i cannot post the name of the variety. But will give you a hint, it is part of female anatomy:

If you are desperate to know the name and not easily offended by crass vulgarities you can right click the image, copy the URL address, and last part of that address will inform you.

Steven,
I grew up eating manga espada, rosa, maria, cordao, de qualidade, and some others I do not remember the names right now.  The varieties shown in your posting are realtively new varieties developed by Embrapa, and some of them are from the southern part of the country.  I grew up closer to the equator in the northeast, 11 degrees from the equator.... 12 hours of sun and 12 hours of darkness all year around, pretty much!

It was good, but nothing to rave about. Neatest thing was the unusual shape. From a distance i thought they were small papayas.

Berto-Brazil sure has excellent mango varieties! 8)
WOW, with a climate of 30ºc pretty much year round and 12 hours of sun light... :o Any ultra-tropical fruit tree will flourish in that climate!

I believe India has the most mango varieties with over 1000. It's hard to say how many varieties there are world wide? I wonder if anyone has attempted to inventory them all?

Thanks for the beautiful pictures and information.

I was glad to see mention of one variety's having an edible skin.  So I'm not uniquely crazy after all!?

I wonder if the 'Coquinho' is a variety of the 'Turpentine' group?  I have actually received a request for me to plant a 'Coquinho' in somebody's yard.

Has anyone tried the Roxa or Alfa mangoes?  are they quality fruit? taste, fiber ?

I like that Emprapa is breeding mangoes for fruit fly resistance, among other things.

Alfa in particular is the one I am really interested in, its has a pretty good size fruit compared to the others. 

here is what I have gathered so far.

fruit flies do not seem to be that interested in it.
Tree is Semi-Dwarf and a slow grower ( A good trait for those in high density plantations )
High yielding
Resistance to powdery mildew and Anthracnose.
Regular bearer.
Low incidence of fruit malformation.

Taste?  Fiber ?   

Roxa is listed as being very sweet, and fiberless.

Censorship rules?  Who is censoring the forum?

Do you just mean that you aren't doing it so as to offend others, or did something change with the forum?
