Alphonso

SKU : 00023

IMPORTANT READ BEFORE Make your Grafting Request Order

Deadline for Fall 2023 Orders is May 01st/2023.

Orders will be grafted this Spring, and should be ready in the Fall/2023.

A 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.

Known as the king of mangos among many in south India where it hails from, Alphonso is perhaps the most famous of the Indian mangos worldwide. Though it is much prized in its homeland, Alphonso has developed a poor reputation in Florida for its performance in our climate. Our Alphonso has performed reasonably well however.

 

After some struggles initially, the fruit eventually began to impress. The flesh is yellow, medium firm, with minimal fiber, containing a monoembryonic seed. It has a flavor rich in spice elements with a subacid component. Alphonso trees tend to struggle with disease in Florida on their flowers and fruit and their production often suffers as a result. Anthracnose and powdery mildew both can be a problem, although the fruit appears to be very resistant to bacterial black spot.

 

They are highly vigorous growers, and produce very dense spreading canopy.

The fruit mature from late June through July here. A few examples of good alternatives for those seeking the Alphonso-class flavor are Bennett Alphonso, Angie, Arka Neelkiran, Kesar, Mesk, Juliette, Itamaraca and Carrie.
