Sensation mango from South Florida
« on: April 25, 2023, 10:16:03 PM »
I saw an article on the mangoes of Pakistan and I saw one name sensation I remember someone from across the pond mentioning that mango. After a Google search it seems to be in circulation also Mediterranean area. One description was of a darwfish tree with a red fruit that is very sweet and desirable  the tree itself can take lower temperatures is late season. Could this possibly also go by the name of Miami late

Isnít there a large Sensation tree at Fruit & Spice? I thought I remember seeing one last time I was there during winter.

About 11 years ago, I used to harvest an old orchard in Jupiter that once belonged to the Pennock family. Among the the various older cultivars in that orchard (which included multiple Haden, Edward, Kent, Keitt, Zill, and even one rare Fascell) were several large Sensation trees.

The fruit were beautiful, and the trees extremely productive in on years. I consider it as one of  the worst mangos Iíve ever had the displeasure of working with, and we never added it to the collection in West Palm at the Sturrock property because itís such a piece of garbage.

Now I want it, would be placed next to the road with a sign please take one and only one.  Kidding.

But, do share Alex, what made it so bad?  Production, taste, ....... all of the above???

It was mealy, bland, developed internal breakdown easily and generally tasted nasty because it went overripe quickly .

Thanks, good to know.

Perhaps a waste of a good name for a mango.  Perhaps "al" can be added to the end in reusing the name for a superior mango in the future.

Unless of course there already is a "Sensational" mango.
