The end of the 2023 season in South FL.  They're Keitt, of course.  They could have stayed on the tree longer, but the squirrels would have gotten them.

The thought of not eating local mangoes for many months had us in the Redlands this past weekend on the hunt for some Keitts. Happy to have them! Can't wait until next season.

Enjoyed some Beverlys today and over the past week. Very good. Better than the Neelams that are/were around.

I have THE BEST lawn guy around. We trade mangoes during the season, but he always overloads me and keeps me covered in avocadoes, too. He just dropped some big Kents on me, says many trees are still holding fruit.


And he gave me $20 bucks!!  :D

It's late August, anything other than Keitt left on the trees in Florida?

Just found a M-4 hanging nice on one of the trees still.

Keitt large, keitt smaller size seedling, Venus, Kent, Sweet Tart (1 or 2 hidden from birds), Mallika, Carrie.  ***last Nam Doc Mai is still on counter from 3 days ago***

LOL... At least 4 big green Valencia Pride hanging on the tree, just walked out & checked... lol...

Ok, since a lot of people do not understand that most mango trees can flower multiple times, I will include a Carrie threesome hanging, and a ripe Valencia Pride with two green hanging from a prolific tree that has had low anthracnose this year and is obvious still bearing fruit.... Big Keitt and little keitt seedlings bear through anthracnose no problem at my location also.

The end of the 2023 season in South FL.  They're Keitt, of course.  They could have stayed on the tree longer, but the squirrels would have gotten them.
I just started eating them today, eight days later.  They're pretty sweet, considering how green they were when picked.  Not seeing MBBS.

2023 Mango Season is truly winding down as only 2 months left in 2023...

Here's some live Keitt just hanging out today Nov. 1st 2023....

How do I get them to survive this long??? I pick trees far from the house first and wait till the end of the season to pick fruit on trees next to the house/patio. The squirrels/birds/rats/ & rabbits try to stay away from Elmer Fudd's back door...

My small choc annon has 3 on there still starting to turn yellow. Seems they might be ready for Thanksgiving. The first one we ate last week and were really surprised how sweet-good it was compared to the reports I've read about it. Absolutely no musk! Im super stoked for it to get bigger so there's more around next off season, or I hope at least.

That's it for my mango season. Just picked the last 3 before the rodents got to em. Then picked all the dragonfruit that were ripe. I'll be sure to find a spot for Keit as well after seeing how late of a season they are. My neighbor gave me one about 2 months ago and it was a top tier fruit as far as flavor/texture. Like candy. There's just so many great ones I'm up over 30 varieties now.

Those fruit from the choc anon were like a mix between a lemon meringue/ coconut cream. Really caught me off guard how great they were. Easily better than coconut cream. They had some ataulfo mangos at Sam's last week that were actually palatable and ripened up correctly so I went back and got another box which is almost gone now 😆

You are making me crave mangoes bad, even with all the Thanksgiving delights on the way. Mix bw LM and CC!?!? So jealous!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
