Fly Mangoes To Cali
« on: May 03, 2020, 12:51:07 PM »
Hey, any fine Souls know of somewhere I can order varieties of Zill mangoes that ship to Cali? Someone out there willing to risk it all? Some darkweb site I have to crypto currency to? Maybe send some used little kids socks or a lock of hair with a vile of virgin blood? Help me! What must I do?! Thanks

If it's really valuable to you, maybe just make a road trip out of it and have them delivered to a friend in AZ or OR, etc. Honestly if you can get a solid enough delivery it'd be worth it... They are simply divine.

https://toptropicals.com/cgi-bin/garden_catalog/cat.cgi?uid=mangifera_indica  It's pricey, but it's certified for California.

The shipping to a friend is a good idea. I have some fam in Vegas, hopefully they ship there. I checked that TopTropicals link and it looks like they only Mango trees. They got enough of my money on trees for the year.

Highly difficult. Best of luck.
Shipping to AZ or Nevada is a good idea to try and work out, still gotta find that person willing to ship tha Zillís though.

For fruit, you can have it shipped to the state boarder essentially, Primm is fine.

You can see if the Postmaster in Primm will accept general delivery for you if you are traveling through.

If you intend to bring the seeds back though, you should make sure they are removed from the husk to avoid the potential for med fruit fly.

Oh, sorry! I thought it was the tree you wanted, not the actual fruit. My bad.

Contact Rivers of Provision on Facebook, ask for Aaron Jones. He has license to ship to CA.

I just recieved some trees from him today. He's the new plug. Healthy trees. He doesn't ship fresh mangoes though. I'm looking for the ripe fresh fruit of the trees I have to patiently wait for. I've been baited by YouTube videos exposing my imagination to new flavors. I'm just out here in Cali tired of Tommy, boiled Aphonso and defrosted Kents.

Frozen Kents are great for chamango, but I see your point.

Irradiated Alphonsos should be showing up at the Indian markets any day now.

Southwest is cheap these days.  Bring them back in your carry on.

True true, And fill up a checked bag and you could mail yourself a box home and send me one too for the stellar advice ;)
I went during mango season to FL and did a tasting at fruit and spice park with Mr. Crafton C.
The hype and flavors are real.
