« on: March 11, 2017, 10:19:55 AM »
I bought these fruits from a local Vietnamese supermarket. They're tiny!! Sweet and virtually no seed. does anyone know which variety this might be? Attached are pictures of the fruit and seed size, also a toothpick for scale  :P lol

Makes sense. It looks just like one but in baby form. Do the trees mango sizes vary?

Yes, and Ataulfos often come out undersized. These were probably #2s that do not make it to major US retailers due to inadequate size.
