Just got a Keitt Mango tree for $40!

winstella(10b los angeles)July 16, 2014

I live in the San Gabriel valley of Los Angeles. What are my chances with this tree?? I can't put it in the ground bc we are moving soon so it has to stay in a container. So excited!

It will be OK in a pot for awhile, but would really like to be in the ground. It's a very tasty late season mango - has a nice reddish blush to it.

When and where you moving too?

San Gabriel is a valley and traps good summer heat and mild winter; I think the mango will be happy. I personally think Kent is taste better than Keit. I also think MangoDog was thinking about Kent, not Keit, since Keit has no reddish blush on ripe fruit. Keit is sure a late harvest but it tastes a little blain to me. One of my friend had relatives worked in the big mango orchard in Palm Spring desert and they gave us huge fresh pick Keit, and I would think those fruits were as best as they could be, but I was not impressed with its taste. Sorry to say this. I'm interested how Keit taste when eating green though, maybe it's an option for eating green.

Here is the link to California desert Keit mango

You can see the fruit has almost no red blush, but I see plenty of red on Pine nursery Keit description. Perhaps it's due to the climate.
