Miya mango taste test








outer smell very light classic mango flavour
inner flesh like  classic mango
taste of the mango is crunchy and very sweet, like a keitt. No tartness. And no complex favours. I do wonder if this is the same as a ''maya'' mango as the name sounds a bit similar.

I purchased a box of small Egyption mangos. Unfortunately i could not eat them as inside they were all spotty and rotted. hoevere they smelt like the previous ''Fazli'' I had. Or like a Kesar. I will contact the ''distribitor'' to find out the variety. (Pending)


I'm really sorry, the box got thrown away  :'( :'(

-i wont put any fertilizer in winter on any of my plants, that is becuase they need so little water that there isnt a point filling up a bottle of solution to pour.

-i had no idea there were cold hardy mangos, gomera. what more could i ask for ? (not completely hardy, grow better in cooler conditions)

-i love the fact that mangos have such a diversity in flavour, that eating different ones, i could mistake them to be different fruits. different ''shapes'' too

I found some plant coasters(for out door pots)they say that they are for easier drainage. (water leaves the pots better and mess-free under the pot. ) I need to think about it.

I was delighted to see pineapple plants in the supermarket Morrisons. I have never seen  them in real life before and when I saw them from behind, I actually thought the little pineapples were fake and just for show!! But it is real, costing 12.86$ or 10. Quite good for an exotic plant and comes with a free pineapple fruit!

The weather here is very warm and sunny so I am sure the Mango plants are all lovin' it.

Saw a video of a spider coming out of a banana and now I'm scared of bananas O_o

I think I should start reading books on mango growing.



I know this is a mango diary, but I'd really like to share something about bananas, if thats ok.

I really like eating this banana recepie, it so sweet and rich that I have it rarely!

Just cook some banana slices with butter and sugar for a few minutes(the sugar is supposed to ''caramelise'' but I can never tell if it has) and voila! A delicious banana treat/snack/desert.

if you like bananas, look up "bananas foster" recipes. its an easy desert and one of my personal favorites.

been reading this thread everyday at work, one of my favorites. goodluck on your mango btw, i know how disheartening it can be to buy a new plant and it starts to look unhealthy. ive learned that alot of times i tend to micro manage my plants and thats the cause of most of my problems. kinda just gotta let the plant do what it does. itll usually sort itself out. that being said i do live in south florida so the climate is almost ideal for mango growing. so take what i say with a grain of salt.

really looking foward to seeing how your tree progresses, goodluck.

sorry I'm not posting for tomorrow

I'm really sorry I didnt post yesterday. :'( (was feeling a bit under the weather). I had a thought about the ''plant feet'' and I'll leave it for the time being becuase I can use bricks to put underneath the pots at the moment(have lots of them)..

Research-(In-person)

So I was talking to a builder, and he said to me that Jamaican East India mangos grow fruit 3 times a year!  Amazing!! :) I do hope that the mango tree  that I gave him survives.

--

I have been thinking about repotting, with regards to the Osteen tree. I will only repot it in the summer, and only if I think it has grown sufficiently big enough to need that repot.


--

in other note, I reallly want a mango spiced latte. No..it hasnt been invented (yet!)

I'm really sorry, the box got ''thrown away'' by mistake. Hopefully next year they''ll bring them in again and I can check it. :(

This is the Egyption mango seedling, kept inside the Osteen's greenhouse , where half of it is covered in foil, so no light at the bottom.
The height so far is 14.5 inches (about 5 weeks old)
The leaves are not very big probably becuase of the lack of sunlight. Lets' see if it reaches up and out of the foil and into the plastic covered part.

another seedling in normal light(Chaunsa with the bag wrapped) is 11 inches tall, under 2 months old

Had a look at another recepie, this is made with condensed milk, double cream, milk powder and mango puree. I would call them condensed milk cakes. They are an Indian sweetmeat) called ''Mango Burfi''. Tempted to try, as its only 5 ingredients (minus the garnish), though I'm trying to eat less sweet stuff.

Found some mango artwork when searched ''Mango goddess''. Note the bits of mango fruit floating around, including the husk.

I like this one. One of my many daughters is a thespian and artist. She's going to paint me something similar to this with more mangoes in the Hair or tree
