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.

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?
