Providence mangos from last summer were the largest mangos I've seen locally (but still only half the size of those).  The flavor was very good, too, and fortunately this particular tree had no BBS issues.

Walter Zill has a picture of one of his Keitts that weighed in I believe over 5lbs.

Gotta love them Keitts, got one tree going with fruits on it.    ;)
Be very careful and mindful of what you sow, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

The best Keitts are the late hanging, smaller sized fruit.  You wont get many of these but the quality is really good, especially when compared to the average quality, early/mid crop, larger fruit...and the better fruit are in October and at times they can hang into November.

BS I just had to Quote Your Post... Quite a change I see from 3 - 4 years ago.... It looks like your a convert to the late season Keitt small variety that keeps getting "Sweeter & Sweeter as the days go by, Oh What a love between the Keitt and I"......lol...... I like it.... Good for you.... Change is inevitable... till the end of days...
