 The Panchadara Kalassa I had from Tropical Acres was one of the best mangos Ive eaten. Its a top tier mango thats very juicy and sweet with some spice. More folks should try to grow this one.

I passed on those because it was described as a juicing mango. Your description sounds a lot better ill have to pick some up next time.

Not much help but besides Vihn Long, Karlong, and Panchadara Kalassa, I believe Zill also grafted Cat Chu and Xoai Tuong mango trees this year that I saw.

I haven't seen those available yet, but its possible they sold out before I could get any

Thanks for the info

Nobody else knows anything about these? I know there's some people on here who know Gary personally.

I just picked up some of these trees from zills

Does anyone have any information on them? I cant find anything online other than its a region in Vietnam.

there's a couple other mangoes they're grafting this year i haven't seen before.

Kar Lon Long
Panchadara Kalassa

Curious what you all thought about them, are they worth picking up too?

So far this year the top tier is:

Brite Bite

There is a large group of second and third tier mangoes.

The Dupuis I got from Verna Zill last week takes top honors. Fortunately, she surprised me, and pulled out a handful of Brite Bites. Those two are pretty unique, I canít place those within any of the standard flavor classes.

The Cac I bought from Alex and Becky @ TAF were phenomenal.

Brite bites a good mango. I was really surprised by it.

You'd figure a bunch of misplaced tropical fruit growers would be excited about global warming

Arent these fruit completely purple? Ive always wanted one just for the color.

20 inches of rain in a short time will do that. concrete jungle doesn't drain well either.

At this point I think they are playing jokes on us with these names.

I thought the same thing. They did pretty good job with some of the other new names, but watermelon splash just isn't appealing to me as a mango.  Renaming seacrest triple sec bothers me too.

i tried one last year but it was picked too green to give a proper review.

no love for cotton candy?

Yepp definetly Dabai,
Also wampee, had some big really sweet ones the other day! WOW delicious. Better then a Lychee IMO. And the tree does give fruit yearly in abundance here while Lychee is always patchy even in the highlands.

wampee definitely belongs on this list.

jabo wine ftw. It comes out hot pink and tasting like fruit punch.

I have had some really good Hog Plum (Spondias purpurea). But you don't hear much about it.

Are the urushiol levels or the risk of contact dermatitis/allergy a problem? The descriptions suggest the contents are higher/less localized than in mangoes.

Given that it's a semi-arid species (hence the urushiol, which acts as a waterproofing/anti-desiccant agent), I'm surprised the agricultural uses have focused on Florida and not California or Arizona. Too much risk of frost in the desert?

probably. they are barely able to survive winters on the southern coasts of Florida

Maprang is more difficult then mango in Florida i think its the humidity but Im not positive


and i agree with the others on atemoya, kwai muk and mammee americana

i thought the storm had passed over us, realizing it was just the eye when the rain and wind picked up again was a chilling moment.

The wife and I are okay. Ive road out several hurricanes but that one was by far the worst. Ive talked to Mike he is okay and have heard Jay Reynolds and the guys from fruitscapes are okay. Ive had some people calling and asking if the damage they are showing on the news is blown out of proportion and the answer is no.  The damage to the island is catastrophic people are unable to get on and off except by boat or helicopter we have a friend staying with us now who was on Sanibel Island the water came up to the second story of their house.

Marcelo named it. Him and Gary were telling me about it on my recent Zill visit. Let us know what you think Aaron!

Have you tried it?

I was told it was previously called 20-1
