Would I be right to consider Baileys Marvel a hardier Haden?
Sometimes spelled Hayden-same tree?
Anyway's, my potted B.M. seems to grow considerably faster than Manila-although Manila has a track record of producing sweet fruit here in the east SF bay area.

It's next to a wall that gets hottest sun all afternoon Hayward Ca. can make.
One important last question-are they alternate bearers?..wouldn't like that..but take what I can get-lol.
