Is that a very sorry Maha Chanok specimen?
« on: November 17, 2019, 12:54:45 AM »
Hello all,
Last summer, in a holiday resort in my country (Cyprus), a country where the only mango varieties you can see in nurseries are Tommies, and a few unknown egyptian ones (most common is Ewais and Zebdah it seems), I came across a very neglected, very sorry-looking tree, planted in a shady corner.
It had the most colorful mangoes I've ever seen. Some of them were allready on the ground. So I picked those who were still good to eat and they were good. Really good. Fi erless (totally), aromatic, no piney after taste, rather than a florar hint. They were tiny ofcourse, most probably due to the tree's neglection.
I asked the owner, she had no idea where that tree came from (it was allready there when she bought the property).
So I searched online and it appears to me that, somehow, a Maha Chanok specimen found itselfnin Cyprus?

What do you think?
