Bombay / Pairi / Raspuri

Bombay / Pairi / Raspuri

SKU: 00042

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.

This mango is synonymous with the Indian Pairi (or 'Paheri'), also called Raspuri in southern India, but is known under the name 'Bombay' in Jamaica where it is fairly popular. It was first introduced to Florida around 1900 and became one of the more "successful" of the foreign introductions. It may be one of the parents of several Florida mangos including possibly Jakarta, Bailey's Marvel and Zill. It is also a confirmed parent of the unnamed hybrid Zill 36-43.

The trees are extremely vigorous growers with dense, spreading growth habit. They often struggle to flower in south east Florida, and are prone to disease, particularly powdery mildew.  The fruit is however highly resistant to mango bacterial black spot diseas.

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. To us, Bombay is the quinissential standard of the Indian/West Indian flavor group of mangos.

A wonderfully flavored fruit, Bombay has been a spotty producer for us thus far due to poor flowering, so we are hopeful to get larger crops as the trees get older. We feel its a mango that may be worth trialing in southern California or Central Florida, where it should have less difficulty flowering.

They are a midseason fruit in West Palm Beach, typically ripening in Late June and July.

Flavor: Indian/West Indian

Country: India - Jamaica
