Humongous fruit grafted for a thin seed and fiberless flesh to contribute to huge yield. Almost tart-like sweet taste, and very pleasing. The smell is uniquely fragrant like a flower, and I'll recognize it anywhere. The original grove planted by John Hatcher, and maintained later by Richard Hatcher, still stands in Lantana/Lake Worth FL to this day. Not a whole lot of these trees are around, but more information can be gathered at http://www.hatchermangohill.com
