The tree of smallest mango species
« on: June 09, 2014, 02:59:07 PM »
The tree photos of the smallest mango species,has a local name of mangga kerikil.
The ripe fruit size is smaller than a chicken egg,very rare.
I'm lucky to be able to find this fruit tree.
Unfortunately at this time has not been fruitful,still have to wait a few more months until the tree to bear fruit.

Ah, but Maryoto - it sounds like not a lot of flesh to eat if there is
a seed in there.  Is it an awesome tasting fiberless mango.....
have you tasted one?

I just assume it has something GREAT going for it.....

I've never tasted it,Gary.
Even i thought it was just a hoax.
From I was a child until now I've never seen it,until parents told me about this mango.
They said it has small seeds and a little bit of flesh.
Young fruit is very sour, and after mature tastes very sweet.

Is it maybe similar to Bouea macrophylla? I'm very interested in seeds.. ;)

I do not know whether this is species or cultivar.
I don't get the fruit photos because currently is not fruiting season,maybe a few months again.
Right now most mango is flowering.

The tree is not like a maprang and just looks like an M.indica, A few small fruiting mangoes have been brought from Indonesia to my region and don't have cultivar names. They tend to be green or green/yellow skinned when ripe and they produce masses of fruit.
Most cultivated mango varieties are best suited for warmer subtropical areas with 30 to 50 inches of rain/yr and are prone to anthracnose when it rains too much. Indonesian and Malaysian mangoes should be used more often in wet tropical climates that are better suited to these varieties.

The size is similar with chicken egg.
Don't worry felipe,the seeds will be available during the fruiting season a few more months.

Yes, this is probably the same mango fruit as that you mean.
The fruit has mass produce.
Maybe you right, it is M.indica.

We have a lot of small mango varieties in the DR,  with lots of colorful names.

Huevo de pato.  "Ducks Egg"
Guevo de Chivo"  " Goats balls"

And a few more I have never heard of,  will try and get a picture of them up.

Usually they are sweet, but with lots of fiber. from what I was told.

I also wonder if the mango mangga kerikil  is Mangifera indica, or something else.

I recently had a few small yellow mangoes from the DR.   Very sweet with a pure mango taste, and very fibrous. Really just had to suck the juice out.

Yeah those were probably the "Gota de Oro"  very sweet, but like eating a mango flavored mop.  best for sucking on.
