Mango Selection

Immature Nam Dok Mai Mangoes
The most advanced of our mango trees is a Maha Chanok seedling, known as Pelangi or Rainbow in Malaysia for its distinctive pink blush on a yellow background. Almost equally advanced is a Nam Dok Mai tree. Both are Thai varieties. 

We also have two other small seedling trees growing: Harumanis (Fragrant Sweet) from Malaysia; and Chok Anan, another Thai variety.

All these trees were grown from fruit purchased in Cabramatta, except for the Harumanis. The seeds for this tree were provided by a friend from nursery-purchased stock.

We look forward to the prospect of long summers, consuming our delicious Asian mangoes.
