Florida Mangoes for Sale
« on: June 21, 2018, 09:27:57 PM »
We have about 30 different cultivars. We're located in Tamarac near Commercial and University. Message me for address. Price is $2 / pound.

Also, we can ship within the continental US (just not to CA). Large USPS priority boxes are $50, which includes the shipping fee.

The reason why Florida cannot ship mangoes to CA is due to a CDFA rule.
https://www.cdfa.ca.gov/plant/factsheets/BringingFruitsVeggies_to_CA.pdf

So Florida doesn't have a certificate??? [originally] I thought this meant packing houses not having "pest eradication equipment" that meets CA requirements....but then it says that the only restricted areas are some "counties" in PR, FL, and Texas for mangos to CA due to caribbean and Mexican fruit fly.
I recall that mangoes can't be sent from Hawaii to CA (due to seed weevil), but that is not identified in the CDFA link.  So I'm still a little confused on CA rules.  So one can ship mangos from AZ across into CA with no restrictions?

Thanks for the list Warren,

Still don’t like it though...lol.
Hopefully Some local mango growers can get some of the top tier mangos grown here in California out for sale where we too can enjoy them...

Gabe...if there is anybody that can make this happen, it will be Peter from SD or our good friend JF from OC.

But for now, take a trip out to Florida and enjoy the mango Mecca and enjoy fruit at Cookie Monsters place.

Jeff,
Do you have a list of mango varieties and other fruits that you can ship ?
Perhaps a link to the list would be great.

Is it possible to send scions from FL to CA?
I am an American from California with a small farm in Southern Brazil. 
Sou americano na Califórnia e tenho um sítio em Brusque, SC.

It is growing super slowly, maybe a foot a year. It has set fruit a few times, but the fruit keep falling off. This time, it had a near golf ball sized fruit that I thought was going to hold, but ended up falling :-(.

Yah, no need for me to get the CA inspection police riled up :-). I know when I've driven into CA, there is a military style checkpoint looking for fresh fruits.

We have a number of other fruits, but most are still not large enough to produce consistent selling quantities.

As for mangoes, we currently have: NDM, Carrie, Coco cream, sweet tart, guava, golden queen, edgar, pickering, duncan, mallika, cac, angie, Mahachanok, keitt, Dot, Venus. I need to eventually create a spreadsheet, as I'm going by memory, and I always forget a couple.

My wife is the one who sells the fruit. She normally just sells from makeshift roadside stands (ie, out of the back of her van :-). But this year, we had a pretty good crop. The cool winter combined with the fact that our 4+ year old planting in the southern lot is finally coming online means a bit of a bumper crop... at least what one could consider a bumper crop from about 6/10 of an acre of land :-).

FYI -- Looks like the large flat rate boxes are running about 14 pounds of mangos each

Yay! That's great news, and that was fast. I ship the mangoes green to ensure that the brutes at USPS don't damage the loot, so you may have to wait a couple of days for them to ripen. I started using pine shavings as filler; hoping that the mangoes arrived in good shape.

Jeff,

My box arrived today and the mangos are in perfect condition, even the ones that are soft and ripe. Great packing at your end.
You certainly make USPS look good !!

Many thanks.

Received my box o mangoes on Tues. Very nicely packed, everything looked in tip top shape.

Just tried Guava. Definitely taste a guava flavor, especially close to the skin, but also throughout. Very good mango.

Waiting on coconut cream, orange sherbet, LZ, PC, and maha.

Very happy, will be ordering again. thanks!
