Does anyone know what the Kwan mango is?

    8 responses

I'm thinking about ordering a Kwan mango at some point but wondering if anyone knows what is is exactly? Other than the Daleys site there seems to be no real information on the Kwan. Is this known by any other name?

Kwan is a Thai mango, mostly eaten green.

I have eaten it but it's just like many others who are eaten green and unripe.

If you like green mango's then it's worth growing but i wouldn't grow it as my only mangotree. Keo Savoy is a better green mango and also nice when ripe.

Thanks Bangkok, I was thinking about adding a Keow Savoy or possibly Elephant Tusk but haven't been able to track one down yet!
I will keep looking :)

Thanks for the reply

Elephant tusk is also not much available here, we have the newer variety of it which is called Chang-daeng aka red elephant or red-ivory.

I grow a grafted one of it but it had many problems, now it's over all that and i don't dare to repot it. I have never eaten/seen it though.
It produces huge long leaves, more then 50 cm long.

I have a Kwan and the fruit is really very nice when ripe, the colour is deceptive as it stays green. I have not tasted the Keow Savoy but I believe that it is best eaten unripe, DAF have this on their website: "When ripe Keow Savoey has a very soft, green-yellow, semi-translucent pulp with overripe flavours."

That's also how i started but because i don't have enough space i started making cocktailtree's with many variety's on 1 tree.

My mangotree has more then 20 variety's now, mostly red coloured or rare mango's. About 7 of them have fruit now, others are opening flowerbuds or just growing/asleep.

Chokanan always has fruit and flowers at the same time, year around.

Do you manage the fruit quantity per branch to limit the weight? I was thinking about this but heard that if you don't manage the quantity it can snap the branch off with the heavy weight of lots of fruit.

Is the Chokanan similiar/same as Sam Rue Du? I'm growing SRD from seed and have one almost 12 months old.

I prune the vigorous scions more than the slower ones, that's all.

The chokananbranche (is not the same as sam rue do) has a supportstick or it will droop all the time. But i even let it have fruit 2 months after grafting and it survived with one mango on it.

To make cocktail mangotree's it would be best to graft the vigorous variety's on one rootstock together but you'll have to know which one grow fast/long. I just grafted all on the same tree.

For some strange reason my tree won't have mango's on the topside, they always dry up. Maybe they get too much sun there?

But grafted branches are pretty strong after 1-2 years growth. Also not all variety's flower after 1 year, some take (many) more years.
