Tropical Fruit Discussion / Amrapali leaves problem
« on: August 29, 2023, 09:36:37 PM »
The young leaves of my amrapali tree , when soaked in rain looks like this. Any body knows why this happens.
The young leaves emerge in summer do not show this problem.
The tree is shaded by big trees. Here rain is heavy from june to sept. Humidity is high.

Mallika has thin seed.

Watch from 2:30. It is paper thin seed of Sindhu mango.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Tender coconut
« on: August 04, 2023, 10:36:53 AM »
How to identify which is tender coconut and which is mature one? Tender coconut when picked too early does not have sweetness. If picked too late the flesh becomes thick. So when to pick it from tree so flesh is soft and water is sweet?

Results will be interesting to see since I am growing only five mango cultivars and only
one of those mangoes of mine appears on this poll list and that's 'Nam Doc Mai #4' and
anyway, my five mangoes are all too small to have given me any ripe fruit yet.

And for the record my choices were made for dwarf and semi-dwarf cultivars due to
space limitation in my yard.

Poll awaaaay y'all......

Cheers!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Top 3 mango varieties poll
« on: July 23, 2023, 01:46:13 AM »
This poll will help people with limited space to select varieties.

11
For the people with limited space, this thread is useful.
I am planning to start poll about top 3 mangoes tastewise.
If any other variety to be included feel free to reply.
It looks like you need to include CeciLove!  I had a Providence tree that produced mangos that tasted and looked like Kent on steroids.  Exceptional fruit, but supposedly too disease-prone, like Kent.  I had no problems, but the tree was removed by new owners right after it first started producing.
Yes will add Ceci love. Also alampur baneshan is quite popular.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / How to search polls
« on: July 15, 2023, 10:42:50 AM »
How to serch on this forum, polls conducted. Like if I want to search previous all polls regarding top mango varieties . How can I do it?

16
Few years back I saw youtube video, claiming Sensation is called Lal badshah in Pakistan.

17
but Goa Mankur mango and Maya from Israel have very good taste. I purchased Goa mankur and Maya graft from them and planted near my house.

In my opinion Israeli Maya grown commercially is very average classic flavor mango, don't set your expectations too high.
Yes I am not expecting much from Maya . But two different people named it at two different ocassions.
There is old research paper about exotic varieties (planted in India) compared with kesar. Only maya scored better in Organoleptic score than kesar.

Hence I planted it.

Hi SHV,
Can you please continue this review thread, this year.

Thanks for this info about Mancurad. I bought a box of Mancurad from Mangozz this year and all of them had internal breakdown issues.

 
I have yet not tasted Goa Mankur mango. I will write its taste comparison when I will taste one.
It fetches better price than Alphonso in Goa State. Goan people talk with pride about their Mancurad mangoes. So its must be very good. It has poor shelf life, hence it is not sold outside Goa state.
I did not like Mallika taste. May be it was not at its prime stage. Mallika has creamy buttery taste while dussheri has mild citrus flavour. Hence I will hope dasheri will fruit. Also I have planted amrapali tree, other hybrid of dasheri.
Lemon Meringue is not available here. Hope in future I will try it.

Internal breakdown or spongy tissues are difficult to detect.. Alphonso , mancurad, mallika fruits may get affected by this defect.

@ Oolie
You may find it intresting, CCARI Goa released clonal selection of mancurad mango by name Cardoz mancurad. They say its better and regular bearer.

Last year I visited Vengurle Regional fruit research center, near Goa. They have many mango varieties from different countries. They also devloped new mango hybrids like Ratna, sindhu,etc. I asked staff which varieties taste better than Alphonso. They said none of variety is better than Alphanso, but Goa Mankur mango and Maya from Israel have very good taste. I purchased Goa mankur and Maya graft from them and planted near my house.

Hi Satya sir,
This year I have planted Sonpari.
Also planted Dasheri. Flowering of dasheri is doubltful in our hot climate. Still I am taking risk, due to its taste.

24
Last year Mr Satya told me, Valcarrie and Super Julie have excellent taste.
Any other mangoes? Taste should not be restricted to typical alphonso flavour.

25
Can you name them, please?
