'Cat Hoa Loc' Mango

Cat Hoa Loc mango is one of the most famous mango varieties of the Mekong Delta provinces, first grown in Hoa Hung commune, Cai Be district, Tien Giang province. Cat Hoa Loc Mangoes are large and oblong (average weight 600-700 gr/fruit), when ripe, the color is lemon yellow, the flesh is thick, there is no fiber, the seeds are small, the taste is sweet and very fragrant. If you visit the West in the right harvest season, from March to May, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the taste of this mango variety is considered the "first mango". Mango Cat Hoa Loc is often confused with Mango Cat Chu. Visually, Cat Hoa Loc Mango is larger than Cat Chu Mango. In addition, the Cat Hoa Loc Mango has a smaller stem knob, and is sticky about 1 cm from the left tail, while the Cat Chu Mango is right at the left tail. The taste of Cat Hoa Loc Mango is inherently sweeter, more aromatic and richer. Therefore, the price is also higher. People still like to say that Cat Hoa Loc Mango is the champion, Cat Chu mango is the runner-up, which means that the quality is superior to these two mango varieties.

'R2E2' Mango

R2E2 mango is a mid-season variety with large, highly coloured fruit. It was selected in 1982 by Ian Bally, Ross Wright and Peter Beal as a seedling progeny of the Florida variety Kent, and takes its name from the row and position in the field of the original tree at the department´s Bowen Research Facility.

Released for commercial production in 1991, R2E2 has gained wide acceptance throughout all mango-growing regions in Australia and is the third most popular variety grown. R2E2 has a long shelf life and is sought after on the export market.

In Vietnam, R2E2 is grown in 2004 in Suoi Cat Commune, Cam Lam District, Khanh Hoa province, VietNam.
