Hindi Bessenara mango -- Got one :)

sleep(10a/b)April 2, 2011

I finally found myself a Hindi Bessenara mango Tree. I picked it up today at Lara Farms in Homestead.

Two years ago, at the Fruit and Spice Parks Mango Madness, it was the mango that I enjoyed the most. I can't wait for next year to hopefully taste a few more.

Where it is going in the ground tomorrow ..

Just thought I would share :)

Kush , you should email Julian Lara. I would guess that he has a grafted Soursop.

I also purchased a Grafted 1 gallon "Lara" Jackfruit. Julian said it is a Golden Nugget seedling, and was his highest recommended Jack.

Hopefully it grows fast !

Is the mango to which you refer pictured amongst the one in the mango madness photo? If so, which is it?

Harry,

Are the mangoes provided by the all the local nurseries or is there some society of rare Mango growers that have the tons of different cultivars?
