Gotta agree, tasted two of three.  Probably one the worst tasting mangoes ever.  I had a third one and i just threw it away.
getting there...

Opinion/experience (or preference) is all over the place with this variety, but usually either strongly negative or positive, so my conclusion?  NOT TOP-TIER! :)  (I'll let Richard Campbell know.)  I like it enough to not chop the tree down as long as it stays healthy, and it's early-ripening.

I don't think its top tier but if you have the room in your yard and don't mind the Carrie type flavor its pretty good.
I usually find Carrie to be more flavorful but the later Angies are a bit better.

I prefer Edgar and Valcarrie in terms of taste but the low vigor of Angie nice feature to have.

I do not know why Angie has been getting such a bad rap. While not a top tier mango, it is much better than many others. The tree stays small and it is productive as well. That being said, agree with Sayyid that Edgar and Valcarrie are better in terms of taste. I'd add Dwarf Hawaiian to the list as well.

I could see it in someoneís top 25 but not a top ten by no means


Tastes vary but not up there with top dogs imo

I think Angies is an excellent mango it can easily be considered top tier by some of us who love it but Carrie is even better. This years Carrie has been off but last year it was on my top ten list.

Going to another tasting tomorrow night at the Brevard Fruit Club

So far the zill types have been excellent

Of course Carrie is an older Zill type that some love and some donít

I donít and ugly Betty and Angie are not to my lfavorites either but I like m-17 which I hear is a Carrie seedling.

Carrie has a big following but I dug mine up and gave it to a buddy and itís doing fine there

Thanks for giving your unwanted tree to someone else.  I usually try to do the same.

My curiosity was piqued by an earlier comment that "Angie tastes like" Australian Dollars!?
