BASED ON our own experience in growing just a few trees of Golden Queen mango, this variety can be profitable to grow. People who have tasted our fruits wanted more even if the price ex-farm is P50 a kilo. A well-fertilized tree that’s 8 years old or older can easily produce 150 kilos per fruiting. At P50 per kilo at farmgate, that’s already P7,500 per tree!
SUPERIOR TASTE – As more people get to know about the superior taste of Golden Queen when eaten as green mango and as a ripe fruit, more demand will be created. And perhaps more farmers, including hobbyists, will be planting Golden Queen.
ADVANTAGE – One big advantage of Golden Queen over the Carabao mango is that the ugly signs of Kurikong will not be there because the fruit would still be green when consumed. Even when consumed as right fruit, the skin may still be green and there will be no sign of the ugly Kurikong.
GRAFTED SEEDLINGS AVAILABLE – Grafted Golden Queen seedlings about 4 feet tall are available at the Sarian Farm in Teresa, Rizal @P350. Contact Rose at 0915-002-1368 or 0947-590-0398 (smart)
