I just cut open my last Seedling W, Apricot mango and this fruit had a Brix of 26%. It was very sweet and very complex. The skin color on this fruit ripened to an orange color on the shoulders with a hint of red. This selection actually does have a small amount of fiber, similar to a Julie. The flavor also has hints of Julie in it, a very deep rich flavor accentuated by slight resin flavor.

One strange thing I noticed about this fruit is that it had what appeared to be white latex like sap inside the fruit close to the skin near the stem end of the fruit. I would consider this a major flaw but it seems to give this fruit a crazy depth of flavor. I avoided the white sappy looking substance and ate around it but there are strong delicious flavors around that area.

I didnít take any pictures of the sap because my hands were covered in mango juice but if I get another fruit, Iíll try to see if it consistently has this white substance inside the fruit. I got a little tickle on the back of my throat after eating this fruit so I would warn people that are allergic to mango sap or latex to avoid eating this selection.

Frank, I think weíre going to have to move the mango tastings later in the year if our Summer is mild. These mid/later Mangos are reaching significantly higher Brix and flavor levels.

Behl, I checked the Peach Cobblers and although they are getting some yellow, they are still rock hard. I didnít want to squeeze them too much but they were still definitely very solid.

I bought peach cobbler tree only because bsbullie had so many good things to say about  this mango. Even in PM messages he sent. I bought via Mr Bender at Benders Grove and planted it. Then someone dug it up three weeks after planting (2014) an stole it. This is very bold, though 10 ft from a road. I have had fruits taken (stolen) but this was a first.

As always lets see how peach cobbler pans out in California and Florida.

Zands, here's is picture of peach cobbler I got from my tree last year, brix 28, very delicious and citrus flavored.


Very very nice  on your peach cobbler! Looks delish/    Sorry for the late reply.

My two Peach Cobbler Mangos were still hanging on the tree and are very very firm but they have been like this for many weeks so I decided to harvest the one with more color in hopes that it will ripen by Saturday for the Cherimoya tasting at Brads this Saturday.










Iíll report back on how it tastes once it ripens up.

Hi Simon,

I usually had my last PC at end of September. Did you delay the flowering until late April?

This year all of my mangoes flowers had heavy mildew and I picked all of them off around April 10 for a new patch of flowers -- it's kind late in the season. This turned out perfect timing for LZ which has both leaves and fruits on same stem,  and PC, but too late for Thai mango Okrung Tong which has zero.
