Yellow skinned, medium size, only slight fibre, excellent quality. Sets well in subtropics. It is a favourite of India where it is the most desired of all the mangoes. So although not a huge mango the quality and taste is what makes it famous.

Has flowered ad has a small fruit set in outer Melbourne. Seems to not need as much water as other mangoes. Managed to survive a snow!

Mango - Alphonso

I bought from Deleys nursery 1 year ago. Alphonso is still in a larger pot and started to shoot and and is flowering. Very happy as the plant was kept in a protected area in winter and is quite healthy. Will post more comments with development.

My Mango tree is actually a King Thai (Maha Chanook) but I do want an Alphonso. It's started putting on a lot of growth from the beginning of November. It even put out a flower spike which is promising. Unfortuanetly I left it staked in its nursery pot...

Read about the Alphonse mango while doing a little research. It's origin is India where it's considered the king of mangos which is a big call considering how many verities of mangos India has. I'm keen to compare them to our Bowen Mango.
