Very compact mango varieties - any of the new Zill ones?
« on: April 12, 2020, 04:13:36 PM »
I have a NDM that is in an awkward spot. The tree is beautiful but we need to keep it pruned back to a point that we don't get a lot of fruit. Not to mention I'm pretty mehhh on the taste. Looking for something slow growing/compact that I won't need to prune back quite so much. Something with a Pickering-like growth habit (already have one of those) but with the flavor punch of the great Zill mangoes. Any ideas?

I've heard ice cream is popular and grows slow. Dont know how that tastes though.

For reference, favorites in my yard are LZ, sweet tart, fruit punch, edgar, seacrest.

I just replied to your post in the other section  :)


Honey Kiss. Stays small, very good and consistent producer of top notch fruit. Mid to late season as well. I have planted a tree and have one half of my Angie converted into HK.
