You need to separate them and mark each one for identification purposes.

My Edwards are almost ready. They look like they only need another week or two.

Found these 2 detached off their stems on their own today; very first ripening fruits from  2 trees:





Left: "Golek"; Right: Mahachanok (Thanks to Warren-"Wslau"-for your scion gift!).
Can't wait to have a taste, soon!  :)

Golek appears to be very sweet, given those spots on the mango. report your findings once you cut it open

I cut open the Golek today, here's my personal observation:

fiberless, creamy textured, not too sweet with just a slight hint of sourness, hardly has any typical mango aroma; sorry no brix report. (don't have the tool).
This fruit ripened super fast; when I found it yesterday, it was still rather firm, but today it became so surprisingly soft. My wife's comment was: "similar to a good Manila mango from the market".

So, needless to say, this very first and only fruit from my young tree didn't impressed me. Not sure if this is the same exact variety that I used to know, as to my recollection this variety is one of the high demand mangos in Java, where fruits are bigger,  firmer and smoother. Or. could it be that the future crops will get better? If not getting any better, I won't be despair, now that I understand that I can always try to do the top-working... ;D

Pardon me for my newbie question.  I love mangoes and I buy often from the markets.  Their cost is always pretty reasonable to cheap.  I have not given any thoughts on growing it for this reason. 

Is home grown mangoes that much better then store bought?  What other good reasons I should consider adding a mango tree to my backyard?

Thanks

Wayne

Fruits of top 10 mangoes in US are not sold in the markets, so that is one reason to grow.
Best mangoes are not always commercially viable, hence backyards thrive.
Its a gardeners satisfaction.

Dont grow manila or ataulfo, or kent, or keitt, or Hayden. these are easy to buy from open markets, grow sweet tart, peach cobbler, etc. that you will never get to even taste it, unless you are close to Zills and you can buy directly.

Thank you Behl.  I've read up on some of the mango threads.  I am going to look for a sweet tart.  Ultimately I would like a cocktail mango tree  ;D

Thanks Frank.  Base on your list I have only seen Kesar at my favorite nursery.  I am going to checkout Champa.  They always seem to have large mango selections.

I have promoted the small humble Fairchild for years here. At least twelve times. With your dry climate the Fiarchild brix is better than here in SE Florida. Though same very very orange flesh as here. Orange connoting sweetness/ripeness while yellow immature mango flesh on imported mangoes means acidity and picked absurdly under - ripe.

And you forgot to mention that Fairchild is excellent for perimeter plantings that mango thieves will not see it   8)    8)    8)

Zands, Fairchild and Ice Cream are both incredible mangos when grown in SoCal.  The are very easy to grow with only mild Powdery Mildew problems.  Dot on the other hand I can't seem to keep alive.  I am probably going to lose my second one to fungal infection in a couple of weeks.

I remember when you went all in aka invested 110% and bought 12 trees or more from Top Tropical. Good going! Go spray the Dot w something.  Even diluted bleach.

In Central CA,  Malika was the first fruit to drop, with a few more on the tree. Pickering, Graham and M. Lauriana are starting to change. Lancetilla and LZ still bright green.

Now that you mention it Franks Edwards does look too long and skinny.  Frank are you sure you ID'ed that mango right?  I know you grow many varieties.  Any chance you mislabeled it?

Is your PC Pina Colada or Peach Cobbler? I think you mean Coalada but please clarify.

Golek fiberless?  Not in my experience.

Is honey kiss prone to internal breakdown in CA?  More than half mine in Florida were perfect outside but spoiled inside.

I have never had a super sweet Cogshall so that 25 Brix is a surprise.

Lastly, do not post any more ripe mango photos.  Otherwise I will have to get a ticket to LA...

Golek is a variety that very popular in my home country, Indonesia. But it was considered a second tier mango over there. It is very sweet, juicy, with a little fiber, very thin seed, and no scent.
Arummanis (means sweet aroma)is the one that considered top tier. It was my favorite childhood fruit.
Arumanis mangoes have a vibrant green skin with large, light-yellow dots. The fruit maintains its green coloring even when ripe and is ready to eat. Arumanis mangoes have an overall elongated and elliptical shape, can weigh up to one pound. Bright yellow to orange color flesh has a strong, sweet aroma and flavor . The flesh is thick and juicy and mostly fiberless.
There is a guy in San Gabriel selling the grafted arummanis, but I cannot tell if it is legit.
The picture on his web looks legit, like the arummanis I know.
