Thanks Rob

I got the scion label as Melee and when I ate one a month ago I said this sure taste like Sweet Tart.  Behl, AZ and Abayomi ID it as sweet tart when they saw it. This is a case of miss label gone right

That's a first. You got a mango upgrade. Going by the photo it looks like sweet tart

I've had quite of few ST but AZ gave me 3 scions 2 years ,which all took, that were label Melee's ..... You tried the real Melee's at Peter's an excellent SoCal selection from a seedling of PSM.
I fruited two trees this year and I told AZ the fruits don't look the same. Finally him and Behl came to the house and saw the fruits and were puzzled. It told him this one tasted like ST and he has no idea how he could've miss labeled since he didn't remember harvesting scions from his small ST

You are the number one fan here. You like sweet tart so much.

Great haul, the height of mango season in Southern California. July 10th is usually the center of South Florida mango season. Fairchild mango festival is always around that date in July
