Does anyone know what the kwan mango - I have a Kwan and the fruit is really very nice when ripe, the colour is deceptive as it stays green.

I just loved the description of a fruit that tasted like lemon delicious pudding, took a punt, bought one, it has only ever given me one fruit, i tasted it and was sold! There are masses of flowers on it now but no fruit set even though i'm keeping the water up (you'd think in Brisbane we'd have high enough humidity) so i'm having a go at hand pollination. The suspense is killing me. I hope it works.


update, fruit rather bland and disappointing, looking into grafting different varieties on to the tree

found it necessary to regularly spray with fungicide to keep the fruit

How is this variety faring for you? There is not much info/feedback about it out there. :)
Jenny says... [2073 days 20hrs ago]
Dead and gone, not impressed at all. No vigour.

I agree Jenny - rootstock vigour was not great for mine either - very slow to recover from shipping and didnt grow back well after winter - Ive grafted to my own cold tolerant cherimoya and have 4 powering away in march 2017 a month after grafting - hoping this is successful.
