I need to see if that's available here, a decent winter mango is nice.

I have a few, most are normal sized fruit and have one that's a giant.

Standards are a bit lower in the winter.

The fruit is about the size of "ataulfo". I planted a flowering tree in August 2011 and harvested 3 fruits in November 2011. I pruned it in 2012 several times and it didn't flower in the winter or summer. It flowered this winter and I harvested about 20 mangos this summer. I pruned it after harvest in June and now it has flowered again. It's only about 5' tall, but it is very well branched. There is a guy down the road that has about 20 6 year old trees.

Hey Nick --- I finally got my hands on a 15 gal grafted Sweet Tart mango. This is another brainchild of the Zill guys. It's one of the best tasting mangos on the planet.

Congrats on the Choc Anon! I've been thinking about getting one for a while, but hear so much about low winter-fruit success, low quality fruit in general, etc. Seems like I'm better with a Nam Doc Mai, but, if Choc Anon truly has a coconut hint, I might want to give it a try anyway.
