Be very careful and mindful of what you sow, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

I would think you could get Pickering or Glenn at Excalibur.  Are you planning on buying just one of those three?  I'd rank Pickering and M-4 higher than Glenn.

Hello and thanks for all the replies.

I was able to purchase Glenn and Fruit Punch which were on my list for $35 for a 3 gallons tree.  I also got a Cogshall mango tree on an impulse buy, but will return it after viewing the reviews on taste.

Cogshall is a delicious mango - who told you otherwise? It also has a dwarfing habit, if that appeals to you.

I finally tasted Cogshall last summer.  I thought it was okay, nothing special, not a top-tier mango. Also, it was fibrous.

Thank you for the input, I only purchased the tree because it is manageable and reliable.  But will have to return it since it is fibrous.
Where else can I find an M4?  Excalibur does not have it nor does TT.

I have a Cogshall in the ground after tasting one.  The one I tasted was very good and had no fiber and let's face it, everyone has their own taste preferences.  What some love others may think is just ok or not like it at all.

Not in a nasty sort of way, but it wasn't smooth and melting, like say Angie or Kent.  The flavor was good, actually better than I expected, but it wasn't "knock your socks off."  (Ah ha, now he's changing his story!)
