Most perfumed mango
« on: September 05, 2021, 10:13:09 AM »
I was wondering what would be your most perfumed mango that you had please.

A very perfumed mango in my definition is a one that fills up the room with its smell, and has a strong smell that stays on your fingers even after you wash them.

In my case, I once tried an Egyptian mango called Seddik and it matches all these characteristics. Seddik leaves also smell very strong, with the distinct Indian spice.

Of the few varieties I've grown it's gotta be Glenn.   So sweet and tropical it's almost nauseating.

I would put Brazilian mango "Uba" in this category. Small, fibrous, but taste and smell like no other mango!

I'm interested to graft an UBA mango. I don't care about the fibrous as long as it has excellent flavor.  I will check of Alex has it.

Alex doesn't have UBA. Anyone know where I can buy some scions?

Alphanso. One ripened fruit will make whole room fiiled with aroma. Payari mango on second place.

Banganapalli and Lemon Zest.

Apologize for hijacking the subject, do you grow Banganapali? I want to order one, but after watching my Son Pari grows like snail, I am hesitating to get another Indian mango. Zone 10A here, very dry and hot.
Orange Sherbet, Venus, CAC, Kathy, Sugarloaf, and Coconut Cream thrive like crazy here.

I don't.  I brought some Banganapalli mangoes back from Florida this summer.  I grow Jahangir (slow grower), Neelam (slow grower), and an unknown variety that came straight from India (fast, aggressive grower. No fruits yet).

Did you buy it as a small grafted tree? I think it's best to graft the scion to a mature rootstock would solve your snail speed issue.
