This mango may be synonymous with the Indian ‘Paheri’, but is known under the name ‘Bombay’ in Jamaica where it is fairly popular. The trees are extremely vigorous growers with dense, spreading growth habit. They often struggle to flower in Florida, and are prone to disease, particularly powdery mildew.
The fruit are small, round, and develop a light red/orange blush at maturity. The flesh is very rich and resinous, and completely fiber free, containing a monoembryonic seed.
A wonderfully flavored fruit, Bombay has been a spotty producer for us thus far due to poor flowering, so we are hopefully to get larger crops as the tree gets older. They are a midseason fruit, typically ripening in July.
Flavor: Indian/West Indian
Country: India - Jamaica
