Banana Mango

    9 responses

Scott 10 starts with ...
Does anyone know the actual variant of mango that Daleys are selling as ‘Banana Mango’? I know that this is a can of worms question as there are so many varieties that have this name but wanted to see if anyone knew for sure!

Thanks everyone!

Hi Scott

Banana mango can be eaten by peeling of the skin like a normal banana hence the name 'banana mango'. So far there are 3 countries who are claiming to have developed the banana mango variety;

1. Bangladesh Agricultural University - apparently released in 2010 (cv name: FTIP BAU Mango-14)

2. Indonesia under ICHOR - Indonesian center for Horticultural Research, 2017 was the date of released. They called their creation 'Agri-Gardena 45'. Interestingly, they have also released an avocado mango (Gadung-21). Apparently it splits open like an avocado hence the moniker.

3. Haiti - they call their 'Madame Francis' mango banana mango as well.

Naming plant varieties is obviously a marketing ploy for businessmen to quickly introduce their new or repackaged product to the public. And banana is one of the most recognized and well liked fruit in the world, even the Eskimos have come across a banana fruit in their lifetime one way or the other.

Maybe some people can still add to this list of banana mango cv claimants.

Happy Gardening :-)

Hi Markmelb

I have done a bit of snooping around about your current mango variety wish list (Carrie, Ice Cream, Lemon Zest, Lemon Meringue and Orange Sorbet). They are not yet commercially available even to a small scale in Australia. But there is one place in Australia that most of this rare (rare in OZ) mango cv's are in existence and you can request a few budwood from the Farm Manager. The Government Agency that I'm talking about is the 'Australian National Mango Genebank' in Ayr, QLD. This is where most of the mango plant breeders in Australia procure their plant materials.

Goodluck on your search and Happy Gardening :-)

Those mango varieties are not in the Genebank..... Most are from the Zill family in USA & recently new.... I do know of someone who has some of these varieties as Fruitylicious 1 says they are not commercially grown in OZ or USA...

Hi Mango Mike

I've seen the list of mango varieties at
Australian National Mango Genebank and I saw Carrie, orange and lemon in their line up. Is that list outdated Mike?

I have unloaded a partial list of mangoes kept at Australian National Mango Genebank showing carrie, lemon and orange cv's for your perusal. Please keep us inform if this list is already revised or outdated. Thanks.

Happy Gardening :-)
