Here are few video descriptions by Dr. Jonathan Crane at TREC of some popular mango cultivars: . (overviewharvesting) Carrie † Soft, fiber-less, excellent sweet flavor Cushman July-August Edward † Excellent flavor, shy producer without micronutrients Julie Favorite in Jamaica, for good reason. Highly susceptible to Anthracnose in FL. . alternative: Ruby & Graham taste a lot like Julie, but are more disease resistant. Keitt August-October, huge fruit, juvenile trees have disease problems. Kent July-August, large tree, very productive Mallika ⊕ † Usually picked mature green and ripened in a warm area for best flavor. . (Good if you have drive-by raiders. Shhh, they won’t know they’re ready.)
Some excellent fiber-less mango cultivars: Coconut Cream Tastes like coconut cream pie, though production isn’t as good as Pickering. Lemon Zest † *Lemon Meringue † * is incredible, “Lemon Zest” is more…zesty. Orange Sherbet† Oh my … another top-tier mango from Zill.
Extend the season with these small trees:
Rosigold ⊕ Mid to late March Angie ⊕ * Beautiful red tint, intense mango flavor. Early.
Pictures and ratings on Pine Island Mango Variety Viewer (Great pics by Ian Maguire) . A word of caution about the Variety Viewer. Some of their recommendations are off base. . Young / Tiebow does not compare well to Edward in MHO; Lancitilla is not a small tree.
