I have been testing the new Zills at my place so I have let them go without spray until I can telll more about them

The Phoenix would have lost its entire crop and had to spray it 

Next to it the Honey Kiss had none


Might be other problems but pm isnít one of them

At our farm with no spray Phoenix was noticeably more susceptible to disease.  I wont be planting or propagating any more.

I am in cali and really want to grow a Honey Kiss. Seems like nobody sell it here, and online only Plantogram has it for $119 non including shipping fee. By I read some bad reviews about Plantogram including the variety not true to the name.
Does anyone know where to buy honey kiss here or who will be able to ship it here?

Thanks in advance

Tasted the very first Honey Kiss from my tree today.  It was small with a red blush.  Flavor is classic mango with floral and citrus notes.  Very sweet, too, and much better than the one I tasted at Walter's in 2016.  I really like this mango and am glad I planted it.  It's 2 years old and has grown to 10 feet.  So much for being a slow grower in the same league as Pickering!  It IS a bushy and compact tree.

Would anyone care to compare the flavor of this with Angie, Carrie, Nam Doc Mai, Mallika, Dwarf Hawaiian or Edward?

Or, as a bunny trail Carrie with Angie?  Some people on FB said they can't taste a difference between Angie and Carrie.

Thanks.
