Its Baileys Marvel. I think Mike they are all pretty much the same in hardiness- but BM is faster growing. It wants to be a tree. Some,want to be shrubs. Where you have frosts every year,fast growing types might be what you want. On the other hand- a Mango that never gets over 6-10' but is bushy is a heck of a lot easier to cover in winter. You could even grow one in the most inexpensive temp greenhouses they sell- just plastic sheeting. Just warm on coldest nights with a lightbulb/christmas lights..or a heater.
Because- you HAVE THE HEAT in summer to get some kicking growth out of them. Try the Manila's.
