Buttercream being a good rootstock
« on: June 05, 2020, 12:10:22 PM »
I planted a Buttercream mango seed a little over a week/2 weeks ago.  Looks to be a vigorous grower

How did that mango taste?
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.

Psalms 128

Interesting, but good!  The texture is just as the name implies.  If I'd close my eyes, I'd describe the taste as Jelly Belly buttered popcorn or like butterscotch

I have a buttercream on turpentine that I purchased in late summer 2019. Based on my observations it is a fast-growing tree. Similar to Cac, Coconut Cream, and Seacrest.

I grafted onto several manila seeding trees and looking forward to fruit in years to come. Seems well suited to California weather conditions. Likely to be successful in this semi-arid environment in So calif.
