Yes the leaves look the same.
Thanks, Vic.  And the new leaves of your grafted trees look like this at first?

My orange sherbets new leaves tend to come out light yellow.

any updates on the new varieties from alex page? in terms of flavor profile

No but if you check out his site most of those ones are explained in detail.

Dwarf tree, large non gritty fruit.

Side by side with my other saps cant really see a difference at the moment.

Cant wait to try this one.

Anyone know anything about Amy? Tried a few at Walter Zills and was impressed with its production and flavor, and definitely want to know more.

Ive heard Neelam has good success out in the western part of Palm Beach County.

Pumpkin pie or Viejo would be your best bet.

Pantin will want to get large.

Only advice is to start tip pruning early.

I can comment on full sun. All of mine are doing excellent in full sun. Even my pumpkin pie. Didnt think they could produce well without that but I might give it a shot with the container mamey I have.

Walter Zill has so many ripe Pickerings right now itís ridiculous.
Following this thread, how good are they? ???

Havent had a bad one. They wait so long to pick they end up with a ton of waste. They also have notes telling customers to wait until its very ripe to eat. They had it from $1, $2, $3 a pound depending on ripeness.

Walter is the goat when it comes to picking mangoes correct. He takes it so seriously and thats why I go there the most.

Ive had some amazing pickering from Walter Zill. Many others Ive bought recently have been washed out but that might be because of the recent heavy rains we experienced recently.

Alex has some new to me Zill varieties listed on the last page of this:

Curious Alex or anyone else has experience with the fruits and if some has since been named.

I have Z34-15 and Z40-26 1 gallon grafts on the way. Im excited about these 2.

Not sure this video hasn't already been posted here before:

I approached my neighbor about doing a mango hedge between out properties, splitting the fruit between us; didn't go horribly, so I've been researching a plan. I'm going with 10' spacing, now I just need to come up with the variety/varieties. The area is along the drainage swales, it can get pretty wet during our rainy months (July-ish), I'm thinking early-season varieties would be the best choice.

Anybody doing something similar with a hedge? I wonder how mixing in an avocado tree or two would work.

Im sure as this progresses we will see much more of this hedge.
