Mango variety advice

Hello all, I need some advice!
Here is my list of mango trees in my yard:
Nam Doc Mai
Ice Cream

I want to add a couple more trees before the south florida summer rains come to an end. Based on what I already have, what am I missing?

How about a Carrie? (you have a nice selection so far!)

RE: Mango variety advice

Thanks for the reply!
It's funny you mention carrie, I bought a tree labeled "carrie". I planted it, and the following year it gave 4 fruits.... they were amazingly delicious, but definitely NOT carrie. Turns out it was a pickering mango (which I never would have considered otherwise). I was happy with the switch, but maybe now I will get an actual carrie mango.
I have a section of my yard devoted entirely to mangos. I have a little less than 1/4 of it planted right now and want to get another row in before the rains disappear after September. I can plant 4 or 5 trees in a row.

RE: Mango variety advice

I just finished the last of my Carries and have found it to be one of my favorites. I don't think you'll be disappointed if you decide to get one.

I wish I had your space for planting. I currently have the Carrie, a Kent and a Nam Doc Mai planted, and a Lemon Zest potted and a Maha Chinook on order.
