Some more info on Denise mango. Rated a top tier fruit. I wish to try one some day.

So, promoting an unknown mango as "top tier" that you have never tasted based on a youtube video... ???  ::)

Can you imagine how many Rogue tree's that are very good that are along the Tamiami Trail. The Orlando Gardener does not like spice mangoes so I don't really pay attention to his reviews. My mother-in-law has two Rogue avocados which are very good but I'm not going to give them a colorful name and make a YouTube  umm no.
I'll stick with my West Indian consultant

Based on TWO videos.  One more and it's unanimous.   ;D  ;D  ;D

Based on two videos, I would sure like to try it out.
No promoting anything, it was rated by others as top tier, hence why I said: I have not tasted.

Be very careful and mindful of what you sow, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

I seem to recall that Orlando Gardener brought this same mango to Truly Tropical last summer for a mango tasting with Chris, and it turned out to be a dud compared to the other mangos they were tasting that day.  Anyway, wait until you see my video.  My neighbor has a seedling tree whose fruit is out of this world!  ;)

Denise gave me a couple of her Denise mangoes two seasons ago.  A fantastic mango in many ways.  The aroma of them sitting in the kitchen was memorable.  But eating them was a mango treat I'll never forget.  :D

John51 please inform your neighbor that the planet Vulcan has been taken and most of the planets in our solar system. If his fruit tree is really out of this world may I suggest one of the moons of Jupiter. Europa :)
And John when you do your YouTube review don't be like most other YouTubers and list an say it taste like every fruit under the Sun except the Tomato.Lol
Some reviews remind me of the Everlasting Gobstopper in Charlie's Chocolate Factory

I was kidding about doing a video, but my friend skhan did review the mango here.  I think he nailed the flavor in his description.  It's a damn good mango, the best I've tasted so far this year.  And it's a pretty color, but no red blush, with a wide window for prime ripeness/refrigeration.

Yeah I just poke fun of the YouTubers to deflate thier ego a little bit if that's possible. Pretty sure they're oblivious to criticism by now. I do think that the Orlando Gardener is onto something by seeking out Rogue potential varieties. There could be a diamond in the rough out there. I would encourage others to do the same. Maybe set up a unofficial peer review board.
I don't have enough time for the next Gary's Zill to come along but there Maybe something that could possibly be out there that you and I would enjoy. ;D

I'm interested in it because it's a fiber less Seedling off of Bombay. What baffles me is the Orlando gardener said it has no spice. I wonder if it has a resinous Alfonso type flavor.

This is easy . . . all but one of my top five mangos are not Zill's creations. My list: Haden, Pim Seng Mun, PPK, Madame Francis, and Saigon. We recently tried Saigon and loved it. Alex's description of it on his site makes this sound like an appealing tree to grow, and I planted the seed in hopes of growing it.

Carrie is a Zill mango.
Right! (lulz) An ancient Zill from the Al Capone era. First grown in the 1930s

My left field endorsement is Kent. Large fruit. Let grow large for a shade tree. Full trad Florida taste. Large colorful fruits. August crop so after the peak mango season when  you get too many mangoes ripening. I had a Kent tree but my HOA banned it. Great yields and fun while it lasted. I lost one branch with 25 mangoes that broke off from the weight. About 3 weeks before the fruits were going to be ripe.

Kent is an upright grower. I must suppose that with enough discipline it can be kept to a reasonable size.


......................................

Alphonse Gabriel Capone (/kəˈpoʊn/;[1] January 17, 1899 Ė January 25, 1947), sometimes known by the nickname "Scarface"  (IOW Carrie was endorsed by Scarface. How Miami is this!)
He worked at odd jobs around Brooklyn, including a candy store and a bowling alley.[11] From 1916 to 1918, he played semi-professional baseball.[12] Following this, Capone was influenced by gangster Johnny Torrio, whom he came to regard as a mentor.[13]

...add Sunny to my list.

Could be a Zill too; as Spicoli and Ozzie say, "I don't know"
