socaltropics,
As of last weekend, yes.  But there is basically no info on growth, disease resistance, and productivity in southern CA.  Many of us will transfer these varieties to Manila and ataulfo rootstock, which generally does better in CA.

I have a couple of Mango seedlings.

Any sources for good Mango scion wood in SoCal?

I just started growing them, they are growing pretty well for me right now in the socal climate, similar growing spurs as my coconut cream.
