JF, Any update on that SoCal neighbor's mango?

JF,

I wanted to know if there was a update, did you try the fruit? The mango tree at a neighbor's home looked promising!
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

The mango taste great!. Fiberless, sweet,little citrusy but not very complex. I've talked to the gardener, the caretaker, the convalescing daughter but not the trees owner (mother). I'm going to try one more time in a week. I think Sam was right, they think I'm a weirdo ???

Great news, so the mango is worthy of propagation? Maybe offer the family some cash to get some scion wood, money always seems to ease the weirdo complex of people lol.

Planted the seeds already? :)

Null LOL

I tried to bribe the caretaker. They might be worthy just because they are late mangos. I have two more mangos to go if the flavor improves I'll return  8)
