Anybody have a Lancetilla, Emerald, Rosigold mango?
Last month the grass cutting people came to my house and with the weedeater they damaged my young Fairchild mango tree that I planted last year. They whipped the 5 foot tall tree near the bottom cutting the bark on approximately 40% of the diameter. Because of my previous experience six years ago when again lawn maintenance people did the same thing to a young Kent mango; I left the tree in the ground and continued to treat it as if nothing had happened but it never recovered fully from the wound and I ended up replacing it. Therefore I've decided to sacrifice the Fairchild and plant another mango variety where the fruit ripen earlier or later than June-July so that I can enjoy mangos throughout more months of the year. Presently I have a Carrie, a Glenn, a Duncan, a Beverly, a Mallika, a Pickering and the damaged Fairchild. I was looking at possibly a Lancetilla for a late season or an Emerald (unsure when they ripen)... but because of the limited space left in my yard and some overhead power lines I need a tree that's not large (dwarf or semi-dwarf) and I would like to know the important characteristics including productivity, fruit quality, ripening month(s), etc. Also considering a Rosigold, Jean Ellen or a Manilita. Any details with these mangos will be appreciated.
