Do we have Bombay mango trees in South Florida?

As the summer comes fully upon us, I am yearning for a taste of some nice Jamaican mangoes, especially a Bombay. Oh, to take my spoon and scoop the sweetly flavored succulence of ripe Bombay mango flesh from a neatly halved, tree-ripened, hand-picked and unbruised fruit; or to pulverize a ripe Bombay to pulp, then make a hole in the skin and suck mango nectar to my hearts content.......Ambrosia!
Guess I have to pay a visit to Jamdown to enjoy these gastronomic delights, as I have never seen Bombays in South Florida. Have you guys? If so, do tell!
