Chino is a large, round colorful mango from Cienfuegos, Cuba.
We planted one in 2015 and it fruited in 2018.
Despite a reputation for being a fibrous, mediocre mango we found that the fiber was minimal and the flavor quite rich and sweet, belonging in the classic group and comparable to Bailey's Marvel and Maya.
The tree has not borne well relative to its size thus far; it has flowered reasonably well but failed to hold onto its fruit to such a poor degree that it has only carried one fruit to maturity each of its first two seasons producing. We're optimistic this will improve with age, and we do like the fruit, perhaps the best of the Cuban cultivars we have fruited.
