SoCal mango tree updates?
I will be planting three or four mangoes this coming spring. Ive read several good threads here regarding varieties. Most of the posts discussed plans, purchases or recent plantings with a few from long time growers like mangodog. Are there any updates from all those plantings in 2005 and 2011?
Im leaning towards ataulfo, alphonso and haden based on flavor, lack of fiber and vigorous growth. Lots of poor clay soil here in inner carlsbad. Will also try several ataulfo from seed. Id like to space the seasons out but would rather have a healthy crop from a fast grower than a stingy, straggly, slow growing or frozen dead tree.
