If anyone wants to sell and ship some fruits, especially Maha Chanok, please let me know.
I wish I had more to be able to send you.  This is the first year my tree had fruit, only around 16 total.  I'm tasting rose in the flavor.  Definitely has a floral flavor.  With my Honey Kiss I'm tasting navel orange.  Mango is just an amazing fruit!  (I tried eating an underripe Keitt along with those two, but couldn't do it.  I had to throw it away.)  Even a properly ripened peach, which is a delicious fruit, has about half the sugar of a mango.

If you have plenty of Keitt, throwing away a few is no problem. However if you have only a few, they will continue to ripen if not frozen first.

I use to believe that once in refrigerator ripening was not possible of mango per some previous reading. I have found this to be false as long as the fruit was not frozen in the refrigerator or freezer. I have pulled out refrigerated mango that were too green and hard and then placed them on a counter outside refrigerator and both cutup and whole mango have continued to ripen over the next day or two.

I first noticed this ability to ripen during refrigeration with my cut up Keitt mango placed in a bowl in the refrigerator a few years ago always seemed to taste sweeter in a day or two. 

The refrigerator slow ripening sometimes does not get to the point of sweetness before evaporation, wrinkling, etc. of the mango to the point of it being undesirable. But, you can take it out and place on counter for a day & you might get to that point before the mango gets too dehydrated and wrinkled.

Of course if you have plenty ... discard any off flavored and grab another.

So is cotton candy and coconut cream good producers?

Our Coconut Cream mango has been our best producer for the past two years and the fruit has ripened over a long period of time, so we’ve had ripe fruit for over a month now. Only two left now. Our Cotton Candy is still too young to tell, but so far it seems like it will be a good producer.

I just picked the last Maha Chanok.  I have one Honey Kiss left on the tree.  Hopefully squirrels or blue jays won't get it.

My last two for 2019 (Maha/HK).  Mangoes from late May until now.  A very good year.

As far as old school mango trees go you have Kent and Keitt in August though Keitt will go onwards into September and even early October. Keitt has done this twice or more in October for me. Kent is very good but was a mad grower for me. I had to cut mine down due to HOA. Still have my Keitt of course!

Last Pina Colada is eaten today. This is my last mango this year. I should have Keitts but I have no fruits on it this year. Partly because it produced tremendously last year 2018.

Still have 2 Ivory mangoes on the tree. I check em every evening for ripening but am too lazy to cage em. But I wont be surprised if they're gone with the first signs of ripening (possom/ racoon).

No where to plant it...but atleast I got it. ;)

How do you like Piña Colada? Do you consider it a premium variety?

Premium for a home grower. These fruits are ugly so not so fantastic for a commercial grower.  Being a New Zill (new in 2012) it has that exotic quasi citrusy Zill taste when you scrape the skin after scooping out with a spoon. Between Lemon Zest, Sweet Tart and PC.... My Pina Colada has been the most reliable-productive of these three new Zill trees I have.

I spotted some late bloomed Choc Anon miracle mango this week, just 2 panicles, they may ripen in September/October.
This is my first out of season experience with this variety.


These are still holding and look like they may go to October.

It's an excellent tasting mango and very productive too. I never have had any disease problems with it at all.
