Some rare mango species includes Mango Tin Crem, Mango Tin, Mango De Wi Dou, Mango Ti Khaki, Mango Jupar, Mango Bwelai Jhorl, Mango Jabal, Mango Cocoa Bef, Mango Vere, etc.

Persons who own these species or any other rare mango species, or who may be aware of where these species can be located, are kindly asked to contact the Department of Forestry at 758.716.5198.
