I can highly recommend Jeff's place. I visited his nursery today. He is really friendly and helpful. I am now a happy owner of Pickering and Lemon Zest! Fruit-wise I should soon be able to impress most people with these excellent mangoes.

^Same opinion here.  :) Jeff and Elsy are great people and are very knowledgeable about their trees. I would recommend them to anybody without hesitation.

I've bought a 3 gallon pace mamey, ndm #4 mango, Lemon Zest mango, Coconut Cream mango, fairchild #2 canistel, and a 10-30 ruby supreme guava from them.  :)

I haven't been to Jeff's place yet, But I would like to thank him for taking the time to graft some trees for me that were hard to find.
Looking forward to seeing them this spring Jeff. :)

Thanks, Joe.

Jeff, there is a chance I may make a quick stop in the area, may be there for a couple days around the 20th of October.  wanted to confirm if you have Kesar mango as listed.
