Default Re: Mango Carrie Taste Weird?

I grow Glen, Keitt, Chausa, and many other mango cultivars, and am in the process of developing a few new ones of my own. Friends of ours (more than one) own large Carrie trees, so I eat many of them every season. Like many mangos the fruit will develop an off taste if it ripens completely on the tree. Carrie, like Kent, need to be picked "mature green" and ripened off the tree. When picked mature green and ripened off the tree, the Carrie is a great dooryard mango!! It tastes more like Mangifera odorata than Mangifera indica.
