Update on neighbor's tree





The purplish fruits have redenned up. He says he talked to the original planter, who said it is Tommy Atkins. Think that is actually it. It's quite good, and worth eating. Perfect for mango salsas and good eating off the plate, although not as firm and clean when cut up. I like it way better than the store bought TA.

...and anyone who hasn't tried Chino needs to check it out! Alex sent me some, they are really nice. Big, firm flesh, bright flavors, sweet with mild acid, some citrus floral something. Different and very refreshing. Went back and forth between a Chino and E4 last night when everyone else was asleep. Went to bed smiling.

Mango bloom in June? Fruit won't be ripe until Christmas!

That'd be awesome to have fruit that late! It's been hit hard by PM on its earlier blooms, though, and I've done nothing to combat it, so I'm doubtful it'll hold on to anything.

Flip, another chance to spray something.  For a few panicles, zep bottle with sulfur water ain't that hard.

Cogshall- had my 2nd ever & this one i waited till i smelled mango passing by counter.
Much better, sweet enough, ate half with skin.  Still needed water afterwards cause it felt & tasted like i ate alot of pepper.  Is pepper taste normal?

Not to my palate... Cogshall is one of my favorites.

I haven't intentionally. Sometimes when I'm peeling the fruit a few bits of skin are left. Or you don't remove enough.
Pretty easy to do on the softer fruits

Just had my first Pickering of the season. What a great fruit. Creamy texture with nice coconut undertones. Off to a great start!

Cutting and eating my first home-grown Sugarloaf now!

Consensus from me and the wife : excellent, but overripe. Picked when was yellow in one spot. Uneven ripening as always but really good and coconutty. The over-ripe by a day thing shorted us on the pineapple flavor and I missed alexs instructions on when to cut it. Great mango I’ll let y’all know how the rest of them are.

I have 1 large similar so it is probably ready by how it looks compared to yours. (2 late bloom fruit are at the top but half dollar size only). It looks like the ripen from the inside and bottom by your cut open E4. So should I check the bottom for softness of just pick and eat when lenticels look whiteish or something else?

Galations, I eat the peeling on Florigon, ripe sweet tarts (none yet), Carrie, okrung, and a few others.

In the past my Pickering was a slow grower and the fruit so so with a lot of fungus on everything. This year 2 pickering have tasted very good with coconut hints as many have previously described over the years. I am assuming the tree being larger has helped it with it's current flavor change but unsure except it is good tasting now vs. the past 6 yrs IMO.  *** So this is a reversal on my opinion of Pickering***

IMO the older the tree, the better tasting the fruit in most all cases for the variety eaten.

Congrats on your first Sugar Loaf! Hopefully, you get lots of practice in picking them, refining your selection skills to the utmost.

On that note, what does Alex recommend? I've got one that has been looking almost ready.

Nice!

Lots of Glenns and 1 Sugar Loaf is all that has ripened in our yard so far. Waiting on Sweet Tart, Ceci Love, Kesar, OSh, Edward, and more Glenns and SL's.

SUGARLOAF MEMO:

DONT WAIT UNTIL THEY GET BRIGHT YELLOW SPOT. If you do, that Bright yellow spot will be almost spoiled and already way over ripe. Instead, pick them when they have high shoulder, brown stem,  black sap lines running down fruit and/or look full size and lots of “freckles” and very slight yellow tint near stem. They ripen far better when picked at that stage so far in my opinion. Takes 7-10 days in garage but solid quality as opposed to over ripening on tree.

I picked three more today that had dried up stems. Will update after tasting. Happy eating y’all.

This is the second season of fruiting. The first was good but this season is excellent.
Dwarf Hawaiian is so rich and creamy. This is 9 B's early season

How do you like the Glenn compared to the others in that list? Our local nursery is getting a new shipment of plants this week and I've been trying to decide between picking up a Glenn or Kent to add to our mango collection.

I have had many so far this year but the tops for me has been Bombay.

They are not the prettiest mango (green cast and full of blotchy spots) but man are they tasty.

Love the resinous piney taste.

Some mango are tasting like they are getting washed out by the almost daily showers lately

I have a Lancetilla on mu desk that dropped but being that this is a late season variety I don't expect it to be great...it is coloring up though

Guavas have ripened.

I would go with Glenn over Kent, Bahama Dan. While I have many mangoes that are better tasting, Glenn is a good mango that almost everyone likes. Peachy too. Good producer, my most reliable and productive tree. Wouldn't dream of giving up Glenn.

Kent is a decent late season mango, but more disease prone.
