Topic: Mangos for Southern CA

Speaker: Tim Thompson

Location:  Regular meeting place (Star Eco Station)

Mango expert Tim Thompson, of Southern California Plant Breeders, has been developing mangoes for close to 23 years, trying to discover varieties that grow and produce fruit in our Southern California environment.  He has chosen a few special varieties that he is currently grafting to start marketing early next year.  He will be discussing all aspects of growing mangoes in Southern California.

Most of you read Tim’s article in the current Fruit Gardener, in which he described about a dozen new mango varieties that are not tropical! They will grow here and they are beautiful!  Come and hear Tim’s talk and learn more about his new mangos.

Perhaps he will even let us order some!
