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.

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. The tree produced its first fruit in 2022.

The fruit is small-to-medium sized and ovately shaped, turning yellow with some red blush at maturity. The flesh is yellow, fiberless and has a rich Indian/West Indian flavor comnparable to members of the Bombay-group. It contains a monoembryonic seed. This is an excellent mango, and we hope to have more to report on its performance in future seasons. We believe it is a mid-season variety here in Florida.
