With Carrie mangoes, I've found that there's about a 5-day window in which they taste fantastic, and either before or after this they taste very turpentine-ish and icky. As far as I can tell, they're perfect when the fruit just starts to have a little bit of give when you press it - too hard or too soft, and you're back to the odd taste.

I have a Carrie and absolutely love it, my tree is older and the fruit is divine. Carrie doesn't give much of a color break before it ripens, a slight yellow break on the shoulders and they are good to go. As Lorax said if they give a little when you squeeze, pick it before the squirrels do. Carrie can go soft quick and if they ripen on the tree they usually bruises when they hit the ground. Mango Sorbet! Mango Salsa! Your lounge will beat your brains out trying to get to it. If it taste turpentine or weird it might have been picked to soon.
Carries should have been thru for the season in the US mine are gone by the end of June.

I mean not too many members here live in zone 10 or above. I wish I am so I can grow many tropical' s. So expect a lot less posts.
I wish I can grow any mangoes here in zone 9. I tried many times including papayas and coconuts but not successful.

I tried several Carrie this year and loved the the taste,no fiber! I have a grafted Glenn thats about 5 feet and a small grafted Golden nugget in a pot.There are many great tasting varieties out there.I prefer something that can be managed at 10 feet.

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.
