Kind of looks like maha now. The leaves are off though. Is there a graft union/line on the trees that you can see?
The Earth laughs in flowers. And bear gifts through fruits.
No where to plant it ...but at least I got it. ;)
F*ck squirrels and deers

Yeah. My single maha hasn't produced much fruit but it looks pretty much exactly like his 1st and 2nd pic in the latest post. But you are right about the leaves. They seem a little short and spadelike with frilled edges. My maha has long leaves with straight edges. Nutrition deficiency?

2nd season crop. Almost ready to harvest. And I still don't see the sigmoidal look of a mahanChanok trait.

Toptr. Mahachanok:

Both those have the typical sigmoid shape to my eyes. Please post pictures when they ripen. The Maha has a beautiful coloration when ripe. Sometimes they fully color up after you harvest them but they will usually have at least a slight blush.

simon,
 is this the blush you talking about?




This one splitted, I think it's because of me watering in consistently , I usually give it daily 1gal, but sometimes, I get give it 2ga.  There is zero seeds inside as you can see. And I think I have not encountered any seeds so far.  Will see if the larger size fruit will have any seeds inside.




here's the planto haha tree, 3yrs old(3 winters) since I bought it online:

Thatís the beginning of the blush but the fruit is not ripe yet. It will lose more of itís green and will have more red and pink like the picture in my avatar.

The pic of leaves of both trees on post #21 look like my MC, and the recent fruit pic proves they are MC. I agreed with Simon that sometime the fruits look total different depending on climate. Redwood city for redwood and not mangoes :)

thanks everyone for the confirmation.

simon-
is this the color you referring to? this fruit was aborted by the tree while it was green and i let it ripen. It tastes pretty good with floral scent to it.

jbaqai,
it's a glass greenhouse about a the size of a room.it is pretty heavy, about 2000lb. i was feed up with plastics and polycarbon doesn't look that nice.
In the winter, i heat it up with a few candles since I don't have any other heating source.
