Hi Markmelb,

I know Haden is at least in WA, but I haven't seen it offered for sale anywhere. I haven't looked for it, but I'm sure you could hunt it down.

To confirm it being here I found this mention from the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries. Out of interest, it mentions it was imported in the 1970's.

'Bailey's Marvel' I don't know about.

I doubt it and Haden might be one of the world's most grown variety but those types with a hydrocarbon taint don't seem to be welcomed in SE Asia or Australia.

Hi Mike - it looks like Haden isnt very disease tolerant from Brad16s link - is your Baileys a Mono seedling - keen to see what you get when it fruits - my seedling Honey Gold is budding up for a good flowering this summer - hope it sets a couple. Haden may do better here in Melbourne with less humidity? Hope to get to Florida in future to do some Mango tasting just to see what the above are like? check these links

Markmelb.... Yes Baileys is a Mono so the seedling tree I have may be better/same but usually worse than its parent..... Have around 150 varieties of mango & if the mono are not to the taste required...Plan is to top work with a variety we like....Mike

Hi Markmelb,

Sorry for butting in. Haden is mono, and as you know Bailey's is a progeny, which I'm also sure is mono. I'll let you guys confirm that.

Edit: Actually, first stop - the Wikipedia article for Bailey's Marvel says it's mono.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bailey's_Marvel

Edit: First hand experience (especially from someone with 150 different varieties) is better than Wikipedia, I'd say!
