Depends on how well it sells, 36-8 is now 'Super Alphonso'

I guess if it sells well, M4 may be named Coconut Cheesecake.

Picked up two to sample, one with blush looks pretty. Interesting S shape. Ripening up.

I just tried Raw Honey and it was very bland. I took one bite and threw the rest away. It was like a watered down Chokanon.

There is also the Mango Madu or Indonesian honey mango that was sold by Fairchild at the mango festival a couple years ago. Itís supposed to have pockets of honey like nectar. Still waiting for mine to fruit.

Thatís mangifera lalijiwa . We have a producing one and Itís pretty mediocre.

I dont usually like riding the hype wave but let this variety ripe until its bright yellow.  I definitely sense the phillipine flavor but with a coconut light lemony candy kick.  This is definitely something special and the flesh is so light nd creamy.   I could probably eat 20 of these babies in a sitting.  I dont know what the background on this is but Raw Honey is definitely a tree I will be buying.  I hope someone can shed more light on the genetics involved in this variety.

I actually did taste the cheesecake background in it too.  I though I was losing it after eating like 5 other varieties in the same sitting 😂

Someone with both Choc Anon and Raw Honey needs to have a shootout comparing the two in a blind test.
I am quite able to detect Choc Anon flavor blind, and when I ate Raw Honey mango & got the exact same taste.

This reference says the translation of Shwe Hintha is "Golden Brahmin Duck".
