PC mango already pushing inflo's
« on: January 29, 2012, 04:52:51 PM »
I just purchased this Pina Colada mango from Jeff Hagen in mid December.  I planted it right away, and to my surprise, it is already pushing what looks to be huge inflo's.

 







Thanks Jeff  ;D

Looking good!  Does it  have a pina colada taste to it?

nevermind- just saw this:
Yes, it has the ability to be better than Gary, which also tastes like a Pina Colada.  The key with the Pina Colada is picked at the right time so it ripens properly.  If picked too early, it will not fully ripen and you wind up with a slightly sour, pasty/chalky mango not worth or cutting into.

So, are they best when picked at color break, or tree ripened?

You want to wait at the very least till it starts getting that yellow/orange blush.  Depending on how many fruits your tree holds, you could try letting it almost fully ripen on the tree.  I would not pick it green.  One caveat, when the fruit gets to a certain ripeness stage it turns very mushy, like a Carrie or even worse.

Congrats sleep, do you plan on keeping at least one if it holds?
It's exciting to see these new varieties trying to fruit.

Thanks for the info :) Good to know when to pick a specific cultivar ..

I don't think I'll let it keep any.  It's just so small .. 3 gallon less than 2 months ago ..
