Carrie Mango

 

Here is some information about Carrie Mangos. I got the information from the website of the nursery where I purchased the plants.
The flavor is by far the most outstanding feature of this variety. It has absolutely no fiber; Is extremely rich in flavor, sweet, aromatic and a pure pleasure to eat. You will savor every mouthful! Its compact size makes it an excellent dooryard tree that requires minimal care. Both fruit and tree have little to no problem with fungus or disease. Lack of color and firmness are the only shortcomings of this superb variety. To determine where to pick, look for a subtle yellow color at its base. Do not let the fruit drop from a tree, or it will bruise since it’s completely fiberless. Many people agree that this is the best tasting mango in existence!

    Hi Lucy,

    no, my carrie died. I did get baby mangoes on my lancetilla the first year but pruned them off to allow for more energy to go towards tree growth.

    Aw that is too bad. Are you going to try another or do they replace a tree for you?

    I am in Texas and it is high time that I get some even though it will be container plants. Can't get decent tasting ones from the store here.
