Iím now convinced our planted one is a fake, foliage looks different from our real Amrapali . It was always suspect, and we never took budwood from it for this reason. Whatever it is, it Still has yet to fruit.

Our real Amrapali, which is a topwork, has fruited every year despite getting badly outgrown and overcrowded by its stump mate, and always tastes superb. I think itís definitely an Indian variety worth trialing here but hardly anyone has them.
Ok, that's good to know.  Thanks, Alex.  Could you remove a lot of the stump mate so you get more Amrapali to propagate?

We will likely topwork a different stump into Amrapalli. The stump mate on the existing tree is Juliette, and we need it to help extend the season on our Indian-flavored shipping boxes.

Go Amrapali!  It sounds like another great Indian mango for Florida.

Here in India , Amrapali is very slow grower. May be because its dwarf nature. Here is my 3 year old Amrapali.

Oh man, my mode went south quick when I read fake, glad to read the rest of that. You sent me Amrapali budwood 3 seasons ago (end of the season); it took an over-winter, but pushed early the next season. It has been slooooow growing, I have it on double-stone (2 seeds) rootstock and it's still only flushing twice a season. It flowered this season, but I'm not letting it hold fruit until I get a scion or two off of it. I'm going to graft onto something very vigorous and/or a mature tree to see if I can speed up its growth.


Also, maybe it's somewhat effected by the rootstock, but the Amrapali has the most lush green leaves I've ever seen. Even the initial flush colors are spectacular compared to the other varieties I have; Guava (with it's initial burgundy flush) is the only one that comes close, but its mature leaves are nothing special.

The young leaves of my amrapali tree , when soaked in rain looks like this. Any body know why this happens.
The young leaves emerge in summer does not show this problem.
The tree is shaded by big trees. Here rain is heavy from june to sept. Humidity is high.
