Which varieties of Mango have a strong spice note?
« on: June 29, 2020, 06:46:21 PM »
 Last week i tried Graham and now I know what they mean by spice note. The reason for this is i am contemplating on grafting to Neelam. From what i read about it I was a little apprehensive that i would not like it but I did. Rich flavor with strong spice I do not think i would want more then one per day or a whole tree! What other spice varieties would you suggest i try?What spices do you taste in Graham? :)

You should try a julie mango, it has some kick to it.

Suvarnarekha/Sundari mango, O-15 mango, Dwarf Hawaiian and Julie are the ones i tasted this season that had strong spicyness. Graham is still ripening on countertop. Neelam is a late season and more of a horizontal grower so you would want to graft someone similar with compact growing habit.  Amrapali is another compact and late season Indian mango but i am not sure of its spicy level grown here in FL.

Kesar is the strongest Iíve tasted, though the one I tried this year had almost zero spice.  Iíve had Bombayís that were spicy and others that were pure juniper resinous. Carrie is the most common spicy mango I see for sale.

Looking to graft a mid season Indian/West Indian flavor profile mango  such as Arka Neelkiran White Piri or Graham onto my Neelam. I would be interest in what spices you detect. I have two in mind :) Grahams spice is much stronger then Dwarf Hawaiian or Julie. IMHO :)

Dwarf Hawaiian is pretty spicy, as well as St Maui and Kesar.

Had a white Hisamagar, who knows what actually was, outstanding though. Spicy and wonderful.

I think that the spiciness of a mango is different for each person's taste buds. Of the above mentioned mangoes, I detect absolutely no spiciness in a Carrie for the many years I've eaten it. ST Maui also has no spice, just sweet mango. Graham on the other hand has a medicinal taste that I dislike and am topworking. On an interesting note, I find that fruit punch has the same smell as a Graham, but tastes totally different. Great mango!

I agree my wife does not taste any spice in graham but i on the other hand taste ginger like in ginger bread cookie or nutmeg in pumpkin pie. Carrie i don't taste any spice just a medical after taste.

Interesting thread here what people calling spice I think of as resinous, but one mango I have had a few times in the past that I think of as ďspicyĒ as in some type of added herb in the flavor profile is San Felipe ...originated in Cuba and is definitely unique flavor.
