Is this the one eaten green or the one you can make as milkshakes (green mango shake)? Or is this the one that you have to eat ripe? Either way, they're yummy...

Congratulations, Pinwheel, on your success with mangos! Your Philippine mango shd start blooming soon. What became of your Julie mango of the 1990s?
Did you accidentally leave it outside on a cold night? How about posting an image or two or your mango plants?
Keep up the good work. Walter T

I have been able to successfully grow this tree for the last four years in Tucson. While I have had challanges attempting this in the desert, I have been successful by being very strict on the watering schedule since I have to keep it containered. I do this because the winters gets just cold enough and for just the right length of time to kill them, just barely. So sunny windows in the winters and lots of watering in the summer and I have a mango tree. I grew a "Julie" back in the 90's and got one mango from it which I shared with four other people.
