I had my first ever peach cobblers from my tree. All I can say is that it is named correctly as it had the strongest peach flavor I’ve ever had in a mango.

I brought some juicy peaches (and others) to Illinois with me and the people I shared them with were blown away by how good it was.  Their farm xperience is mostly Tommy’s from the supermarket. But I agree the JP was fantastic.

Paul, that does not sound good...Peach Cobbler does not have a peach taste.  It is zingy citrus in flavor, most reminicent of candied tangerine (like the old fashioned tangerine Life Saver).

Sulcata Grove family says it "smells like baked peach cobbler & tastes like peach with hints of coconut".   

"Me thinks your taste buds have an issue.. need a re-calibration..."..................... 8) 8) 8)

Blessed be the man who plants a tree knowing he will never live to enjoy it's fruit or shade.

I just got open this Orange Sherbet and it tasted a bit watered down. The Fruit had a good texture and was juicy but the juice was not syrupy sweet like Lemon Zest, Sweet Tart or Piña Colada. It had a Brix of 18% and only portions of the fruit had a citrusy taste. The portions of the fruit with a citrusy taste were also much sweeter than the other parts of the Fruit. Fruit can vary from year to year and I believe this is just s bad year for this variety.

Frank, you must have gotten Fruit from a well managed tree. We’ve sampled a few fruit this year a few weeks apart and they were not in their prime. I have to be patient and wait for a good year to sample the Orange Sherbet but my sampling’s this year at least show that the Fruit can be inconsistent.

I currently rank the trinity in this order: Lemon Zest>Po Pyu Kalay>Orange Sherbet

Yah, 18 degrees of brix is pretty low for an OS this late in the season. Should be well into the 20's.

PPK is the parent.

That what I thought and had written down too.
Then the picture was provided.
How could Zills HPP make such a mistake on their own catalog?

Simple answer?  Because they meant to write "Lemon Meringue," not "Lemon Zest!"

There are a number of mistakes/typos on their list.  Has been for years.  Understand, it is a list for wholesale purposes and its being scrutinized based on retail...

Should say "sister" and not daughter.

I just cut open this Juliette and it had a nice yellowish orange flesh. When I cut it open, it smelled a bit like a Julie but had just a hint of Indian resin note in there as well. The flesh had slightly less fiber than Julie and did taste a bit like Julie. The flesh was sweet with a Brix of 24%.

This fruit had a fantastic flavor that I really liked. There was a slightly over ripe portion that tasted a bit vegetably in the same manner that Mallika sometimes gets. A great overall Mango. Pictures with and without flash.
