This was developed by Fairchild Garden (Dr. Richard Campbell & Co.) in honor of Angie Whitman, wife of William (Bill) Whitman, a stalwart in the world of rare, tropical and exotic fruits. The high-tech Greenhouse at Fairchild is named after Bill Whitman, The William F. Whitman Tropical Fruit Pavilion where the Whitmans also donated a million dollars.

I bought this Angie mango at the suggestion of Ms Noris Ledesma and Dr Campbell,
the last one left, at the 2014 Jackfruit Festival at Fairchild on 9-13-2014.

This Angie mango (an Edward seedling) from a compact tree had an exceptional taste.

Mango #268: ANGIE

This is famous more for its stunning skin color combination of red, orange and yellow
than its flavor or sweetness or any other traits.
