I think that Duncan is one of the most disease resistant trees you can get. Although I would probably try to taste whatever you are thinking of getting beforehand. You are only planting two trees, you better like them after waiting years to fruit! Pickering is a great little tree, but I don't really like the flavor. There are so many better mangoes out there. Also, I would probably go with an Orange Sherbet as an all around tree before the Lemon merengue, if you are looking for that citrus flavored mango.

I do prefer Orange Sherbet to Lemon Merengue. I hear OS is okay with respect to disease resistance. Pickering isn't my favorite mango, but I'd rather have a B+ mango that I don't have to fuss with than an A+ mango that may require spraying.
