In California, looking for Coconut Cream
« on: July 21, 2016, 06:17:06 PM »
I'd like to get CC and maybe one or two other interesting mango varieties but I don't know of a nursery selling them that ships to CA, except Top Tropicals but they reportedly can't be trusted for mangoes. Is anyone aware of one?

Be aware that there may be vigor issues with Florida Turpentine rootstock. Coconut Cream is a patented variety so you have no option other than the Florida trees. Plantogram is my go to mail order retailer for fruit trees not available in SoCal.

Would you settle for "Ice Cream " Mango? Pine Island nursery sells that.

I think Coconut Cream is a good but not top notch mango. It does not live up to the hype / name.

There is another variety with stronger and more prominent coconut flavor about to be released. Rob would know better. Perhaps worth waiting a bit longer for a different "coconut cream"?
