I have to say, I like Har's Oddities list more than the Supremely Delicious list. Granted, I haven't tried all on both lists, but Pim Seng Mun and Coconut Cream are two of my top five (I've yet to try a great example of M-4, which could knock Coconut Cream off my list if it lives up to the hype). Has anyone ventured a "romantic" name for M-4? I also really like Madame Francis and Ice Cream and Baptiste.
Yay, finally someone commenting on the Oddities!  Thank you, flip.

Coconut + Cantaloupe = Cocoloupe Pie

Ha!

Maybe "Coco Loops"?

Or how about "Har" or "Mahdeem"? He should have a mango named after him 😃

I had nothing to do with the development of any of the Zill varieties.

Har-fetti? Har's definitely not coconut? We need a poll on this one.

Why should the developer be the namer? Val-Carrie?

I think the developer should have the right to name what they develop and it should not be named by anyone else unless the developer granted the authority for someone else to name it. Or, enough time has passed and the unnamed variety has been forgotten and then someone renames it and gives the lost variety "life" again.

Another situation where it may be okay to name a variety that you did not develop is if you are only giving it a marketing name for sales such as the Champagne mango or Sweetheart lychee.

From what I can see in this photo, your soil looks very fertile.  Is the feral pig problem in Texas as bad as I've read?

You bet it is.  There's a high end leisure ranch not far from me.  Owner has several interests like grapes and hog hunting by helicopter.  One of our house cleaners told us he got 92 in one day via helicopter.  Friend brought me a newly butchered juvenile the other day.  Gonna do me some full rack baby back ribs!

Curious, does Zill or any of the other breeders have a patent (copyright) on their work, new offerings?

The name is up to Zills but I have read some people calling M4 as mounds.
Blessed are all who fear the LORD,
    who walk in obedience to him.
You will eat the fruit of your labor;
    blessings and prosperity will be yours.

Coconut Cream has an active patent.

There’s a mango that we’ve been very interested in called “Leopold” which isn’t from a breeding project but is patented, which has unfortunately prevented us from obtaining the budwood.
