Just curious if anyone is successfully growing trees further north than Brevard county. If so, what variety? Thanks!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / First flowers on a mango, Woo Hoo!
« on: November 16, 2018, 11:28:20 AM »
Was out in the yard yesterday and noticed my Rosigold Mango tree was starting to push flower pannicles. Hope I can keep it warm enough through the winter to get some early fruit! March/April would be awsome!:) Anyone else in Florida seeing bloom yet?

So, I was thinking the other day about how long it takes for mangoes to ripen. I believe its about 100 to 150 days from flowering. And I know they ripen faster in warmer weather. But, it would be interesting to know what varieties have the shortest times and which take longest. I don't think this has been covered in another thread, and I ask because I'm going out of town from late May to July. I want to know what mangoes might ripen before I leave and which I might have when I get back. Because I'm in 9b, the cold fronts get all my mangoes to flower approximately the same time. So most have about pea size or a little bigger mangoes on them. Just curious if anyone has some ideas...

Curious about these cv's in particular: Edward, Rosigold, Angie, LZ, Sweet tart, Mallika, Bailey's marvel, Keitt, Pickering, NDM, Graham, Fruit punch, PPK, Carrie

But would be interesting to know longest and shortest. I suspect really big mangoes take the longest - Keitt, Harvest moon, lancetilla etc. Do small ones like sweet tart or choc anon, or bombay ripen sooner? Thanks!

Does anyone have any experience eating or growing Dwarf Hawaiian mango? Looking for an early season mango cultivar. Positives and negatives of the tree? Thanks!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Any Info on Cotton Candy Mango?

Does anyone have any info on the Cotton Candy mango? I read on another thread that it is a late season mango and i'm searching for a good one. Is that true about it being late season? What about flavor, disease resistance, tree size and precociousness? Any info is greatly appreciated. ;D

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What is it with Angie mango???
« on: July 29, 2015, 05:54:29 AM »
A couple of years ago, Angie mango was all the rage. Now I see that people are either digging theirs out or topworking. Is it a good mango or not??? Also, it's supposed to be early season. Any truth to that statement? Would love to hear what everyone thinks ;D ;D ;D
