Please tell your friend that we are still waiting for the Jumbo Kesars here in the USA. I was hoping they would show up in the supermarkets around here last year. I hope the plantation is still doing well.

Anyone know of a place selling Indian mangoes in Miami-Dade (or if I were so lucky, Monroe County) in FL?

Anyone here ever successfully sprout such a mango seed purchased from a local store?

I have a Kesar tree, but it's only the first year in the ground here, and did not push out flowers anyway. So I've still never tasted one, but I'm generally a fan of Indian mangoes. I miss my days in the NYC tri-state area when I could get a variety of Indian mangoes right down the street, and for decent prices... I used to buy a box at a time! But alas, there is barely any Indian population way down here in extreme SFL.

go to any Indian Grocery store in Late April thru June and you will see Indian Mangoes there.
