I should add that some experts (not me) point to M4 as their new favorite late season mango.
My M4 held fruit until early September. Superior quality and not problems with MBBS...For me M4 is a sure winner as far as late season Mangos go.
That's great to hear about M-4!

The M-4 I received last season. In late August were top tier coconutty. I noticed today my cotton candy is starting to push. This should be a very interesting season. May have to be a revision of what is classified as late and very late.

M4 question..  how is it late season if my 5' tree has panicles popping out everywhere?
Is there a 2nd round or do they take more months to ripen?
First year flowering.

Ed, I believe for late season it doesnít matter when the bloom startsÖit matters how prolonged a bloom period is but donít quote me on that. I know thatís how Keitt and Beverly operate but they usually have two crops also.

Season is more variable the further north in the state you go because we have a longer wind of cold to induce bloom. I have seen mango trees bloom as late as the middle of April here. As a result, a variety that is typically thought of as early season (like Rosigold) can have a second round of bloom much later and may ripen with the late season fruit. Ripening time and "hang time" also play an important roll.

Say hello to Beverly the new edition
A friend and I stop by Truly Tropical Chris's Delray Beach to pick up Beverly and a Palmer. While I was there I could not resist a beautiful Juliet. Had a very enjoyable discussion about Ryan Marco and a Jamaican Blackie seedling brought many years ago that's producing fruit. The weather was beautiful with a strong Seabreeze very enjoyable.
