Ok Rong

The mango (Mangifera Indica) originated in Southeast Asia where it has been grown for over 4,000 years. Over the years mango groves have spread to many parts of the tropical and sub-tropical world, where the climate allows the mango to grow best. Mango trees are evergreens that will grow to 60 feet tall. The mango tree will fruit 4 to 6 years after planting. Miami is the home of some of the best mangoes anywhere. Here is the Ok Rong species of Thailand. It is very sweet and very well sought after but I am not crazy about it. I like the Zill better.

Will you see these mangoes this year? I love to have some...it's just too expensive at the store. I like it ship over too.
