The Angie cultivar was selected due to its relatively small growth habit, rich and complex flavor, and good disease resistance. It was named after Angela Whitman, wife of William Francis Whitman Jr., who was a founder and 1st President of The Rare Fruit Council International, Inc. (RFCI), Miami. Angela is a trustee of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. 'Angie' was included as a Curator's Choice mango for the Fairchild Garden's 2010 mango festival. It was among several mangoes recommended by Fairchild's Curator of Tropical Fruit, Dr. Richard Campbell & Dr. Noris Ledesma, for home growers.
The fruit is yellow to orange in color at maturity, and average weight is about 400 grams (14 oz). The flavor is rich and sweet.
The trees are considered semi-dwarf and easy to manage through pruning.
