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 mango has been growing in Delray Beach, FL for a very long time; the original tree appears to be quite ancient. It was at some point brought to the attention of Walter Zill due to its reputed flavor, and he grafted several on his own property after being impressed by it himself, later giving it the name 'Apricot'.

The fruit are small, yellow in color with a bit of orange blush possible. The flesh is fiber-free and melting, with a very richly spiced Indian-West Indian type flavor flavor. It has a monoembryonic seed.

We were very impressed with the fruit the last several years, and obtained the graftwood for our tree from Walter Zill in 2019. We believe it was almost certainly a seedling of 'Bombay' (also known as Pairi and Raspuri) based on its flavor and aromatic traits, but it appears to be much more willing to flower here than Bombay. It is a mid-season mango for us in West Palm Beach. The tree is a vigorous grower with dense canopy.

We now feel that Apricot has demonstrated enough for us to recommend it to backyard growers as a fantastic alternative to those seeking a high quality Bombay-type mango with better productivity traits.
