Here's an update from my mainland mangoes in Fallbrook. I planted two each of pineapple and antonio. Both pineapple specimens are very healthy. But one of the antonios died, looks like weak rootstock to me. I doubt they are grafted onto terpentine rootstock, which would be the far more robust and cold tolerant rootstock for California.

I also planted a glenn, keitt, 2022, a grafted autulfo and an emerich, and all are doing well, but I have to say the California selections including the emerich, pineapple and antonio are doing great. I actually think these might be good selections for my windward Hawaii locations since they seem more fungus resistant. Right now I am mainly growing nam doc in Hawaii, but I plan on adding other varieties to my Hawaii gardens.
Tropical gardening in both Kaua'i windward Sunset H2/USDA 12b and Fallbrook Sunset 23/USDA 10b.

Axel, has any newer varieties from Zill shown anthracnose resistance in Hawaii? Several of his new ones are reported to be resistant in FL, but I think Kauai would be the real test. Which varieties on Kauai have shown to be most anthracnose resistant?
