Maprang or Mango?
« on: June 27, 2022, 06:40:24 PM »
I bought a tree from an online seller out of PR, was supposed to be a grafted maprang. The foliage had me a little skeptical but now its flowering and I'm really having second thoughts. This is a mango isn't it?

Mango leaves are alternate, maprang leaves are opposite.

If the ad was for "maprang mango" or "mango maprang", it is definitely a mango.  A friend in Texas got burned with this as well.  Not sure if seller doesn't have a clue or is intentionally doing this.  I know they were told the tree was a mango and not a maprang.

Yup just went back and checked my purchases, "3ft grafted maprang mango". Well i guess that answers that lol

You need to contact them and ask for a refund.  That's what my friend did.  I would have thought they learned from that, but guess not.  This sort of shows that they don't care.
