I'd vote for Neelam.  And this forum will not allow you to spell it with the letter u.  Nee-lum.  Wait.  I did it!

  I have only had Keitt and Beverly but by far the winner would be the Beverly, Both are reported to have issues with MBBS but I have not had any issue so far. Both are older cultivators but are still talked about for a good reason.

On that list I've only had Keitt and Neelam. Two different flavor profiles. Is there a flavor profile you're looking for? Of the two, I prefer Neelam, but what difference does that make? You have Neelam in your signature--do you already have a tree? Mine was great and productive but got hit hard by the freezes and hurricane, but it is trying to make a comeback. I hope it does, as I really like the fruit. Let us know what you decide!

I would recommend Beverly.
It is a very nice fruit.  You may be correct about disease susceptibility but I will take what I can get of that variety.

Beverly is delicious and best flavor of all those to me but it has tendency for seed to sprout out while still ripening. Also has tendency to alternate bare After heavy crop in my neighborhood.

I should add that some experts (not me) point to M4 as their new favorite late season mango.

Last season Palm City made a statement that at the end of the season he appreciates the classic mangoes. At the end of last season I had some Keitt mangoes that I really enjoyed. As being a backyard grower Zone pusher I need to cull my Grove. Before I make a decision on very late I wanted to get recommendations from forum members. I have a fellow grower who I exchange fruit with that would like to have my Neelaum. I have Little Gem for late West Indian profile thanks to Tony CC recommendation. As far as the classic profile I have Pickering and Karen Michelle thanks to Honest Abe's recommendation.  My neighbor has VP. I think John51 threatened to take an ax to his Neelam tree the first season I'm not as patient as he is LOL

How did you do that?  See I can't spell Neelam with u.

You could copy and paste from my message, that u isn't really a u, it just looks like it.

You're right, bovine.  I did prematurely chop down a Neelam tree after only one fruiting season because the flavor was too carroty.  I regret doing that.  I planted a Mahachanok in its place, and I really liked the fruit.  Alas, all the backyard fruit trees are gone at that house with a swimming pool in their place.

I like to pronounce it with the U and yes fliptop it is one of the trees that I didn't have time or the energy to protect and it got frosted toasted. It's a live but it won't be blooming this season.  John51 I was quite frustrated last season with trying to figure out when and how to pick it. I know given more time it should get better. I'm going to give this tree to a fellow Co-op member who will share the fruit with me. I think I will be much happier with Beverly the forum members were persuasive. I am into collecting what I call the nostalgic Zill mangoes. Such as Sophie Frey and Walter does seem fond of Beverly even though he's not sure where the name came from. I was surprised that you two are fond of Neelam. I would have bet dollars to Donuts you were in the classic camp🙂

True on both counts.

bovine421, I have favorites in all flavor profiles (except the one Alex describes as Indian-Alphonso, yuck). For the Indian-West Indian, my favorite is probably Ice Cream, but it's not productive here. While Classic is a top flavor profile for me, it's probably second to Indochinese at this point. But everything changes, including our collections . . . I hear you about culling the herd due to time/energy/resource limitations

Fliptop last season I overdosed on the tart I'm still feeling the Pucker. This season I'm going to indulge in the classics and use moderation with the Indo chinese hybrids. Ice cream does pretty well up here other than you definitely have to spray the Bloom. What I'm stoked about is Little Gem Karen Michelle and M-4 for have exploded with bloom. They are all of good size and have been in the ground for over 3 years. You my find this humors.🙂 My mother-in-law calls Little Gem. Mr Jim😅 Mr Jim how are you today!

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. I also have Venus and Sweet Tart. Not sure about the MBBS thingy yet. I took out Keitt, didn't get a single fruit due to MBBS. For me M4 is a sure winner as far as late season Mangos go.

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.
