Orange Essence vs. Orange Sherbet Mango
« on: June 19, 2023, 11:50:50 AM »
If you had to choose between the two, which one would you plant?  I know that Orange Essence is "citrus-Gary" and Orange Sherbet is "citrus-PPK," but if someone, who has room for only 2 mango trees, is just looking for one of the best-tasting mangos, which one should he choose if his other mango is going to be M-4?

Orange Sherbet because m-4 is late season as is orange essence.
With orange sherbet you extend your season

Hey John I would go with OS also because of size, it is a smaller tree.
Be very careful and mindful of what you sow, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
