Borsha was one of the first Indian mangos to be successfully introduced to south Florida, being brought from Poona, India in the year 1902. It proved to be better adapted to Florida than some Indian varieties , produced well once the trees became older and gained some early notoriety among people studying mangos at the time. However, it was never widely propagated and became forgotten by time, relegated to being contained in the germplasm collections of Dade county. Oddly Borsha is no longer recognized or known in India either.
Its flavor has been described as very high quality and for this reason we have maintained an interest in it. After receiving several mislabeled trees, we finally we able to obtain genuine Borsha budwood in 2020 and topworked a tree into it. We look forward to evaluating it in future years.
