Here are few video descriptions by Dr. Jonathan Crane 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. Susceptible to Anthracnose in FL. 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. Harvest Moon Huge, spherical, very good flavor, mid to late season Lemon Zest † *Lemon Meringue † * is incredible, “Lemon Zest” is more…zesty.
Peach Cobbler† Oh my…another supreme mango from Zill.
Other recommended small-tree, fiber-less varieties Angie ⊕ * Beautiful red tint, intense mango flavor. Similar to Carrie, but better. Cogshall ⊕ Great flavor and color Glenn † Excellent flavor, color, and scent. Extra disease resistant Nam Doc Mai ⊕ From Thailand, one of the best Asian mangos Pickering † * Excellent flavor, hint of coconut. Polific, small tree, fruits very young Sweet Tart This got highest marks from mango grower Alex Salazar* at our Sept.’16 meeting. .Alex’s favorites for eating quality.
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.
