Does Sophie frey produce better than Julie. Why did the Zill family choose that particular seedling. Was there any particular trait that they observed with that particular seedling.

(Can't remember my YouTube login) but wanted to know why Kathy is no longer on your list. That mango moved into my top five this year.

I think it produces more female flowers than Julie so it痴 capable of fruiting better than Julie with a full bloom. But it hasn稚 flowered as easily as Julie thus far. It痴 also a clearly more vigorous tree.

I think it got selected because it had a different flavor than Julie but I知 not sure the Zills were terribly high on it. They had planted a bunch of Sophie Frey seeds in a patch that they intended to use for rootstock but they became overgrown. One of these was the original Carrie mango.

We still grow Kathy but the tree has been too unhealthy to take budwood from the last several years. I have a second one in a pot that I had been intending to plant and remove the old one but the old one has looked better as of late.

I had another engagement but intend to catch up on it.  Alex is always so knowledgeable and so generous to share his knowledge.

Thanks Alex for the info. I am very interested in the history of all these trees. The budwood I received this spring didn't take but if my request is fulfilled I will graft Sophie frey onto Valencia Pride rootstock to help preserve it. The Sophie fry mango I got from you last season was excellent. Just as good as the Julie I received this season.

Thanks for sharing Alex. I started to respond and add my thoughts on growing mangos in socal,  but the response got too long so I just made another thread.

Always appreciate hearing your insights.
