Has anyone in the So Cal area bought a mango tree simply just labeled as Criollo before and give more info about this mango variety? The tree was large and nice thick trunk size in a #15 for 1 bill.

Btw, this nursery isn't in So Cal, but close to my area and the nursery man said he bought the tree from the LA area. And he doesn't know anything else beside it being called "Criollo''?( wasn't going to buy, just curious, as never heard of such variety before and would like some insight  :))

Thanks JF, if a seedling I'll just pass. I have one of the Tim Thompson's mango coming this July.

Don't know if this is true for your area, but the word "criollo" is a Spanish word used to refer to a type of fruit that is common in an area. In Costa Rica a criollo mango is a large tree with rather small fibrous fruit which are usually ignored. Key limes here are called "limones criollos". A small sweet banana here is called a "banano  criollo".

Could be the same as you said. I'll just pass, since I don't know much about it and the one i'll be getting soon, is  new name variety from the mango professor, so i'll just wait for that one.
