Collins A SEEDLING MANGO TREE IN FULL BEARING The fruits of many of the seedlings are so strongly flavored with turpentine that their sale in America has given people an idea that the mango is little more than a ball of tow soaked in turpentine. There are 500 varieties of grafted mangos in India, however, some of which rank among the most delicious fruits in the world. Some weigh as much as 6 pounds, are entirely free from fibres, and are produced in quantity. Trainloads of them are shipped to the large cities of India.
