You guys are a wealth of knowledge.  My local nursery has a 7gal Fairchild I'm going to check out.  Would you say the Fairchild is on par with Honey Kiss across the board?

Fairchild off of my tree this year was awesome. Fairchild seems to be a moderate grower in my yard, at about the same pace as Carrie. Im not sure if this is the universal experience or just my yard. And its a very atrractive tree. No disease issues at all.
 The mangos arent brightly colored and this is good ; less attractive to 2 legged critters....just my limited experience.   NDM is a delicious and adding an asian mango , if you dont have one, may be the thing to do. Im not sure why NDM isnt a firat choice other than splitting issues, which may not be a problem in your area (my neighbors tree hasnt had a problem )

Fairchild on par with Honey Kiss how?

NDM is a "basic" sweet mango.  Good for someone who is just looking for that however if you are looking for something more in terms of complexity from an Asian/Thai, look towards a Mahachanok.

How different are they in size?

How bout maha? Are they slow growers and can they be maintained at around 10 feet"?  Do you Maha's for purchase Rob? 7g size? 15g?

I have seen them slow and moderate growers, it seems to vary based on location.   They can probably be kept in the 10 - 12 foot range with proper pruning.  I think you would do better at 15 feet but thats your call.

Yes, Excalibur has some very nice 7 and 15 gallon specimens.   PM me for info.

Yeah, im trying to keep them around 10' so I can cover them in the winter.  Gets cold here in Sanford


Going off a tangent here.....this is the first Pickering off my little 7g potted tree!!  Shared it with my daughter and boy was it good!  Had that pina colada/coconut taste.  Can't wait for the tree to get bigger so it will pump out this yummy fruit
