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.

Baptiste is a variety from Haiti, not quite as famous as the Madame Francis but still widely grown there. It is an unusual mango, having a very firm but fiber-free flesh that also isn't very juicy by mango-standards either, and contains a polyembryonic seed. The flavor is of medium-sweetness with notes of 'carrot' when on the less ripe side, in addition to a resinous component.

 

The fruit are oval, small-to-medium sized and turn yellow at maturity well before peak ripeness with a reasonably long shelf life. They usually ripen in July. An odd fruit that has developed a niche following with those who appreciate its interesting flavor.

 

The trees are vertically oriented, though only of medium vigor. Baptiste has produced very well and consistently for us over the years in West Palm Beach. In Loxahatchee, the flowers were very prone to anthracnose. It has been largely free of mango bacterial black spot and rot.

 

Flavor: Indian/West Indian

Country: Haiti
