Ugly Betty, F-29 (Juicy Peach), HW-14, Sunrise
« on: July 02, 2012, 06:42:12 PM »
My wife stopped by Zills today and picked up some trees and a few mangoes! One in the box was labeled Ugly Betty and supposedly is in production for next spring!

Awesome mango, great sweet flavor, real ugly!










a couple others..

Just ate another one... Super sweet, mild, fiberless, good seed to flesh ratio.. Didnt detect any citrus flavor, but I could if I tried real hard.. These damn mangoes are all so good..

In fairness, the HW-14 wasnt as delightful to me.. Kind of had a vegetable taste at first then sweet and fibery.. Not as noteable in my book..

Also had a Sunset that did have some citrus taste and was REALLY fragrant.. That one was really good, not as big as Betty though!

Sunrise tastes similar to Jakarta (its parent) but is much better, imo.


I really like Ugly Betty. Its a truly fiberless mango; a 'freestone'  type.  I thought it to be fairly rich in flavor actually.

The F-29 on the other hand tasted peach-like to me when I first tried it, if I'm remembering right . Second evaluation was more citrus/tangerine/orange like.

All are really good.

Can't comment on HW-14, haven't had that one yet.

When you say "freestone"... are you saying it is seedless?

Freestone means the pulp doesn't stick to the seed, not that it is free of a stone.

As opposed to clingstone.Saf I'm glad I read on because F-29 is not a very common girls name.

Sunrise Mango





Very nice.
I could imagine an enlargement of that Sunrise pic hanging in my living room.
And the fruit hanging out on my kitchen table.

glad they didn't name it Ugly Natalie!

If that was the case, they would have called the mango tree something like "Nice Nectar Natalie"...   :)

They would sell a lot more trees with nice names.   Who would buy a tree called, "Nappy Natalie"...   ;)

Your review of the Juicy Peach makes it sound pretty good. It's a nice looking mango as well. Zill's has now finally released the tree for sale so I might have to go buy one. I think DonGeorgio had a few to trade if anyone is interested. I think he may still have some. Here's his post I saw today:

Darn it. All these new Zill creations and no space. >:(   Oh well, at least I have lemon zest, coconut cream and other top quality cultivars. Better than just a haden like I had in the other house I lived in. :)
