Gomera Mango for Mediterranean climates..

stanofhJuly 1, 2014

I ran across that on the net. The nursery claims it perfect for cool wet winters and dry summer Med climates. I'm dubious that California growers wouldn't have tried that type by now if it was that exceptional. Still,anybody interested or ever seen one?

I've heard of it stan - actually quite awhile ago, but don't remember where......it's quite the hype. If true (and if it tastes great) a lot of folks would benefit from it!

Hello Stan

In Southern Spain commercially grown mango trees (mainly Osteen and Keitt) are grafted on Gomera rootstocks. So the answer is yes, this variety is perfect for cool wet winters and dry summer Med climates. If you are interested, you could look for plants at Viveros Brokaw. Apparently they have a branch in Saticoy, CA.
