Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: 2023 Mango Season
« on: July 19, 2023, 08:28:59 PM »
Had my first Pickering off my little tree. This tiny Pickering was everything a Pickering should be. Truly delicious.

I also would like to say thank you to everyone who brought mangos and helped organize the event.

I ended up having to work, so I could only run in for a little bit. But I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Thanks again!

Dot.  Valcarrie?

The Dots I had last season were extraordinary. I tried to find a tree for my yard but was unable to locate any.

I keep a personal mango taste sheet, and so far, Maha Chanok, Sia Tong, and Kiew Yai are my top 3 for 2023. The mango season is still young and I hope to try more mangoes.


 


A mango taste sheet!? I love it!

I had to show my wife because she thinks I'm crazy and obsessive for constantly smelling the mangos on the counter. They have to be eaten at the perfect time. It's more than important!

Maha Chanok has been the best, most consistent, for mr so far. But it's early yet.

I will be there.

Started getting some leaf issues on my Pickering and my Kesar. Pickering has some fruit. Kesar has no fruit.  The new leaves look fine, but the older leaves aren't looking great. They're starting to get discolored and have dead spots.  See pictures...

It was a really good tasting mango

Can you offer a comparison to other mango varieties?

9
What are the parent trees of this variety? Any idea or is it a secret?

Or, do you know the flavor profile?

I'm a fan of the truly tropical youtube page.

I used to go to Pine Island. I'll probably go this year as well, but they got hit pretty hard by the hurricane. Not sure what the crop will be this year. I have a promising start to my glenn and pickering trees, but I wanted to try some new varieties to possibly add to my backyard collection.

Does anyone ship from the east coast? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Been in the ground 2 years.

I think the tree will decide on it's own how many fruit it can handle. It will simply drop the ones it can't support. If you've had it in the ground 2 years, I say let it happen on its own.

Again, I'm no expert. Lots of people on this forum know way more than I do.

I'm no expert but I think it depends more on how long it's been planted if it's 3-4 years old. Has it been in the ground all 3-4 years? Or was it recently planted?

A few pictures from my Glenn. I've got a few hundred starter fruits among all the pannicles.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Still no flies or bees
« on: February 25, 2023, 11:41:58 AM »
I'm in Southwest Florida and my yard just exploded with bees and flies. It was pretty quiet until like 2 days ago. Suddenly each tree is swarmed. I was worried for a bit.

So hopefully for you it will be the same.

 Side note:

Maybe this always happens ??

Pickering oozed white sappy liquid from all stem ends while pushing bloom spikes out, and sugarloaf is oozing black sappy liquid from all flower spike ends as they emerge.

This is happening on my pickering as well. Its a new tree for me so wasn't sure if it was normal.

On a different note, my glenn is pushing pannicles from all over the tree the last few weeks.

Is this anything? I assumed it was damage from being beaten up by the hurricane. The damage is visible from the underside of the leaves.







20
Pics of my damage. Minor stuff. Idk if it happened when I was caught off guard by the first frost, or after everything was covered and xmas lights were strung. Overall I'd say the xmas lights and blankets do the job. I have this desire to get several custom fronts covers made. Like huge duffel bags with zippers, but no bottoms. Seems like it would make the process much easier.










21
I did not see forecasts of frost last night and didn't cover anything. I woke up to frost on the roof and the grass. I had my mangos strung with xmas lights. Hopefully that was enough.

I live in North Port.

Was there any frost on the leaves? Sometimes with a light frost you will see it on the grass and roof but it won't have settled on the tree yet.

Nothing on the leaves. So far everything looks good. I tented everything last night as well. I think I'm in the clear.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango parent relationship graph?
« on: January 14, 2023, 12:33:11 PM »
Someone posted a very cool graph thing showing how the different varieties of mangos are related. I can't find it. If anyone could direct me to it, I would greatly appreciate it.

After giving it more thought my left and right brain agree that Keitt is the Undisputed best mango. After all the other mangoes are fading from our memory. Keitt is the last Mango hanging. So which is best the first mango of the season or the last. Last season I had a mango called little Keitt. I believe it came out of Pine Island Nursery many years ago. I hold that very late mango in highest regards

I feel the opposite. Keitt and Kent, both late season, are heart breakers.

I purchase them bc it makes we want to believe mango season isn't over. But after you get a few slices into one, you realize they taste like they're from publix, and indeed mango season is over.
