I ate a bunch of these from Alex (Tropical Acres) this year. They are now one of my favorite mangos. Very pineapple-citrus (but not orange)-guava flavored. In fact, it really does not taste much like mango. If you were tasting one blind, you would likely call it an unknown tropical fruit, not necessarily a mango.

I really love them. I like them so much that I ordered them in 4 separate boxes this season. And I got some budwood to grow for myself. It is so uniquely flavored in the mango-verse, I can't really compare it to any other mango. A truly excellent fruit.

Starch make sure you get your hands on some Guava mango and Super Julies next year. Two of my favs. Wonderful flavors.
I always miss out on ST Maui, they are a bit earlier than when i get to Florida which is late June.I heard great things about it though.
Another hidden Gem i found was Sucari (Sukarya)  an Egyptian mango which i gorged on at the Fruit n Spice park...delicious.
I got several Guava mangoes from Walter Zill , they were also wonderful.
Btw , plant some Edgar seeds ...heard through the grapevine they do well for someone in Cali.
My seedling sprouted in the ground around 14 days.
Pic to follow.
Planted in 1 gal container with husk and bottom cut out!

I can't comment on Guava, but 100% agreed with you on Super Julie. It was one of my 3 favorite mangos this year!

Good deal on the Sucari! I will keep an eye out for that one.

Thanks for the tip on the Edgar seeds. I have an Edgar tree that I planted several years ago as a 3 gallon. It is about 6 ft tall now, and somewhat filled in. It seems like a slower grower, but it is shaded more than my other mangos. Hopefully I can get some fruit off it next year.
