New cultivar recommendation
« on: June 30, 2019, 05:35:37 PM »
Hello friends.  I'm looking to replace a poor-producing seed grown mango in my back yard with one of the new premium cultivars which, according to my bro, blow most of the old out of the water.  I'd like a medium sized tree that produces top-notch fruit.  I've already got a Keitt for my late-season, a NDM for mid-season, a Lemon-Zest, and a Rosigold, and I'd like to add to my collection with something that really impresses the friends, family, and neighbors.  High yield is definitely preferred, as we tend to make use of every last mango.  Suggestions?
Thanks,
Easy

Sweet Tart immediately comes to mind.. (Iím not very familiar with productivity of other cultivars)

There are plenty of generic recommendations, but I was hoping someone might chime in with recommendations for a medium sized tree.  Thanks all,

Easy, send Alex (SQUAM) and Cookie Monster a pm on the question you have. They are 2 good resources. As far as the new varieties are concerned they are so new that some of the trees that have been growing has not reached full maturity as yet....so hard to tell size wise. I'm sure those 2 may have some idea about a few other varieties that have been out longer such as Sweet Tart and Lemon Zest.

I know what you mean by a medium-size tree but I do have to state that most mango trees will eventually become huge if you don't trim it regularly.

I'd look for a normal-Low vigor variety in your case.
Varieties that come to mind are:
Fruit Punch
Pineapple Pleasure
E-4 (seems low)
Phoenix (seems low)
Sweet Tart is on the higher vigor side but not that bad
Coconut Cream
Guava

Guava and coconut cream are vigorous if I correctly recall what Alex told me. E4 is pretty vigorous for me so far.

2 smaller trees:

Pickering

Glenn
