CAC Mango Tree from Excalibur in Lake Worth, FL
« on: June 29, 2022, 07:48:35 PM »
Hi all, I thought I would post this for people who are struggling with which mango tree to plant. I was not able to find too much on this particular variety, CAC aka COC, and the taste tests that I saw on YouTube were lackluster. I was concerned about it because this is our first tree and I bought it for my husband for Christmas. (Long story but it is a inside joke in our family about my hubby and his love of mango trees). I went out to Excalibur fruit trees in western Lake Worth and the guy out there suggested this one.

It gave us a whopping harvest of two mangoes this year, but not bad for a new tree. I have since learned that I probably should not have let it fruit this year. The skin was yellow when ripe, not red and orange as I am accustomed to. I was a little worried that it wouldn't be as good as all the basic mangoes we have here in south Florida. Well, last night was the big taste test. There were four or us and two giant 1 lb+ fruits. All four of us agreed it was the best mango we ever had. They were incredible! They were completely fiberless and as sweet as candy. The taste was 90% mango and 10% citrusy coconut. They sell the fruit at Excalibur, so I think I will go back and buy some. They were that good.

I can see how in a taste test you may not be able to appreciate the individuality of some mangoes and this variety is one of them. There is really no effective way to cleanse your palette after this taste except with letting time pass.
Just wanted to give you all some documentation of this great variety if you haven't tried it. We couldn't be happier with our tree and are very excited for next year!

Thanks for sharing.  I think Cac has been generally well regarded.  https://www.tropicalacresfarms.com/product-page/cac
