What mango taste closest to a Haden?
« on: January 25, 2018, 03:13:37 AM »
Growing up in Hawaii the two most popular back yard mango trees were Haden and pirie. To this day, Haden is still my favorite. I know it's dropped out in popularity, especially among you mango enthusiasts, but i can't get enough of it. I love the sweet, spicy, rich mango flavor it has and don't mind that it's fibrous.  I only have room for one mango tree and want to plant a Haden but I'm concerned about it being susceptible to disease. What mango is closest to Haden in flavor and richness yet is disease resistant? Or should I just plant a Haden....?
