'Nam doc mai' mango is one of Thailand's favorite cultivars that was introduced to South Florida in the 1970's. It's a superb mango that's fiberless, soft flesh, small seed, candy sweet, thin skin and very aromatic; totally one of my top five favorite mangoes! An oblong fruit with bottom hook and has a subtle color change from green to yellow/light green with pink flush when ripe. They tend to drop off the tree when ripe but you can pick off the tree when you see some sap oozing from the stem. It's compact growth habit make this mango a great tree for container planting and/or small yards. It's hard to come by since it is a very sought after mango tree but you're in luck because we have lots of them! A disease resistant and hardy grower.
