IMPORTANT READ BEFORE Make your Grafting Request Order

Spring Grafted Trees should be ready the following Fall. Deadline is May 01

Late Summer & Fall Grafted Trees should be ready the following Spring. Deadline is October 01

 

A Pre-Order Grafting Request is an order for us to produce the specific tree that we don't currently have available in stock. We must graft the tree and then it must go through a multi-month process to heal and grow. Only Once the small tree has completed two flushes of growth since it was grafted do we consider it ready to leave our nursery.

This is the name we have given to the "Himsagar" contained in the collection of the USDA, which has been propagated to some degree in south Florida. It does not resemble the Himsagar of West Bengal and Bangladesh (which is a round fruit shaped similar to 'Kent' or 'Haden').

 

We've also called it "Lehore Himsagar" because the budwood was supposedly sent to the USDA from Lehore, Pakistan along with several other varieties in the early 1960s. However, we now question whether what has been propagated under the name 'Himsagar' with budwood sourced from the USDA is even this same mango that was sent from Pakistan in the early 60s, or whether there was a mislabeling issue somewhere along the way.

 

Regardless, This mango is slightly oblong in shape, medium-sized and yellow at maturity. The flesh is delightfully rich and sweet in flavor, belonging in the classic flavor group. We've been very impressed by it. It appears to be a late-season mango and the trees are precocious and productive in large pots. The seed is monoembryonic.

 

We have a few of these that we planted in the search for alternative mid-late season varieties. If you have a Himsagar tree that was grafted by Zill High Performance Plants, this is the version you have. It has performed so well in recent years that we feel it deserves widespread consideration as a late season variety for Florida yards.
