Grafted Mangoes

Grafted Mangoes by Daniel Brinneman (Daniel Brinneman)

I spent most of my childhood in Togo, West Africa. And our family had a mango tree there in the front yard and on this mango tree my Dad grafted it with a branch from another tasty mango tree with no strings in it.

I grew up in the British West Indies, and I have eaten all sorts of mangoes. Dad's brother, Uncle Clifford, was (is) an expert surveyor who was also very knowledgeable on many fruits. He had many forms of grafted mangoes on his property one which I remember being exceptionally large and sweet.
