Mango in 9B realistic?

12 years ago

My understanding is that zone 9B is at the ragged edge of Mango growing. Anybody successfully grow mangos in the South Bay Area (San Jose)? It is pretty rare we get temperatures in the 20's. I have a Don Gillogly Avocado that has done well, although there have been a few winter nights I protected it with christmas tree lights.

Is there much difference among the various Mango varieties hardiness? I would probably be interested in growing a variety I couldn't get in the store, like Alphonso or maybe Ataulfo.

I would be interested to hear others mango experiences.
