I am interested in what varieties you would plant together in the interest of creating a new variety and why they are paired together?

Ultra early season mangos with other regular early season varieties to get more spring fruit.

Late season  varieties with high quality MBBS/rot- resistant, mid-season cultivars:

Some examples-
Early season:
Edward x Dwarf Hawaiian (both early and excellent flavor. One has dwarf trait, other superior size and texture)
Rosa (super early season) x Dupuis Saigon (early, bbs/rot resistant, productive, excellent quality)

Late season:
Keitt (very late, productive) x Cac (outstanding flavor, production, disease resistance)
Beverly x Seacrest
Osteen x orange Sherbet

I am interested in what varieties you would plant together in the interest of creating a new variety and why they are paired together?

For hybrids, I would go with polyembriyonic varieties. Use the top 5. Lemon zest, peach cobbler, sweet tart, honey kiss, Pina colada, pineapple pleasure, CAC, etc. There will be one sprout out of all these that will be different from clones. That's the one you should be after. It's a 3-5 yr project but well worth it

I have lemon zest seedling that is 4 yr old, may bloom this year, ifruit was next to Maha chinok, and have coconut cream two seedlings that are in bloom now.

Behl- keen to hear how these do. The Zill seedling off types is the future.

Think an improved ice cream mango is needed, the tree has a compact stature and growth habit, delicious tasting fruit, and in my yard flowers multiple times a year which would make it a good candidate to receive or donate pollen.....the main drawback is itís anthracnose magnet.... maybe coconut cream x ice cream or other mangos with disease resistance.

In the following video Gary Zill says his seedlings took more like 10 years to fruit.

Iíve created 2 top tier selections from madame Francis and Juliette seeds which might have been crossed with LZ, or other Zill var that were a few feet away. They are both precocious and bloomed after two years....fruited on the third year.
