Just wondering if anyone knows about BS variety 'Tahiti'? I saw one last week at Bunnings for $59 - at that price I thought it may be a new superior type, but I can't seem to find any info. about it! Cheers.

They are a Birdwood tree. They had a few at the QLD Garden Expo last month. The fruit they had, which were from the Tahiti trees, were huge and looked like 1kg Granny Smith apples. They were not yet ripe though, so I dont know about the taste, but I'd assume they are good. They seem to be putting some interesting grafted stuff back into Bunnings - Tahiti Black Sap, Galaxy Jakfruit, King Thai & Falan Mangoes.

Its big for the round types. The flat Black Sapotes like Maher and Flying Saucer can get larger and the Mossman can get huge.

King Thai is Maha Chanok and its out of this world http://mangoworldmagazine.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/maha-chanok-maha-chanok-is-hybrid-mango.html#!/2012/05/maha-chanok-maha-chanok-is-hybrid-mango.html.

Falan is probably the #2 green eating type of mango, behind the Keow Savoy, but doesnt have the nutty flavour of KS. It tends to split in wet weather, so if thats a problem for your area, keep away from it. Great with chilli and soy.

BJ, I had to investigate further the King Thai/Maha Chanook, and it seems very good to all who taste it. Couldn't find any info on disease resistance - you wouldn't know?
Also thanks for enlighting me re the Black Sap sizes - I have a Maher and didn't realize the fruit are that big (pleasant surprise though - bring them on!)

Just following up this old thread and wondering if anybody has had first hand experience with Tahiti BS fruit? What do folks rate as superior types for the sub tropics?
