Best variety mango, macadamia and olive

    4 responses

Jmac starts with ...
Best variety -
Macadamia for nut quality.
Mango for fruit quality and hunter valley region climate
Olive for pickling green and/or for oil.

Also, is it possible to purchase Calypso Mangoes?

Any info greatly appreciated.

I can't help you with macadamia or olive varieties but for mango in your area I would go with planting a few different seedlings & see what survives the winter.... You can always then graft on what you like..... Calypso are under plant breeders right & therefore can not be purchased by back yard growers also the Calypso mango is mono. & therefore the seed is not true to type......Mike

For flavour you can't beat a bush nut, but the tree is very spiky and the nuts small. Of the cultivars, the A16 would have to be the most verasatile, good sized nuts, small tree. Mango, well you can't beat a bowen. But Glenn has excellent flavour too. Arbequina and Frantoio are olives that are good pickled green. But Calypso is has Breeder's rights and can't be propagated unfortunately

You need a mango variety that can perform ok in non-tropical climates. Also if it's a seedling then it needs to be polyembryonic, not monoembryonic (you can find lists on web). I've got an R2E2 seedling doing quite well in Sydney. And I read that Bowen (aka Kensington Pride) seedlings adapt ok to such marginal climates. Some varieties are particularly prone to anthracnose (big black spots on fruit). I've read that some years mangoes may not fruit in marginal climate if it's wet and cold during flowering (flowers go yukky) - my young R2E2 has fruited every March/April for 4 out of 4 years - probably just lucky(?). For myself I find Calypso to have too much "turpentine taste", especially if you eat a lot of them - I certainly wouldn't grow one even if I could. Great colour and good shelf life though.
