Over the next 10 years Tom propagated many mango plants in his plant nursery, selected the one he knew would become a winner, naming it TomEJC he approached the Department of Agriculture in Sri Lanka for classification. The TomEJC cultivar received formal recognition from the Department of Agriculture in 2003 and is now the variety of choice for cultivation in the Dry & Intermediate Zones of Sri Lanka.
