Half of Sale of Mangos at Mimomsa in LA
Hi Gang - just wanted to let everyone in CA know - Mimosa Nursery in E. Los Angeles is currently having a 1/2 off sale on Mango trees (and I think lots of other tropicals) till the end of November. I was there yesterday and got a $320, 20 gallon, gorgeous 7' Alphonso for $160. they have mostly large 15-20 gallon varieties. I also got a 3 in 1 grafting of Nam Doc Mai, Haden and Valencia Pride...
Anyway, their address for anyone that doesn't have it is 6270 Allston Street in Los Angeles CA (90022) and the phone number is 323-722-4543.
Talked to Gilbert Guyenne, one of the owners, who noticed his name on a printout of some down-loaded mango researchwork I was carrying. Turns out he was the progagator of the Costa Rica Mango variety back in 1980 when he was plunging into his new hobby! Cool....huh????
I've attached a photo of my 7 yr. old Manila, cuz i think simon or someone asked for it awhile ago....the photo looks small on my preview, but the tree is about 12 ft high by 10 feet wide.....
cheers everyone and have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING......Mangodog
