IMPORTANT READ BEFORE Make your Grafting Request Order

Spring Grafted Trees should be ready the following Fall. Deadline is May 01

Late Summer & Fall Grafted Trees should be ready the following Spring. Deadline is October 01

 

A Pre-Order 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.

Carla was selected from Gary Zill's breeding program (planting # C-12) in Boynton Beach, FL and was released in 2016. It was a Zill-80 seedling with 'Gary' speculated as its pollinating parent.

 

The fruit tends to mature mid-to-later season, July through August. The flesh is yellow, fiberless and has a complex, very delicious classic-acidic flavor similar to its siblings 'Fruit Punch' and 36-8. The seed is large and monoembryonic.

 We planted several Carla trees in 2017 for evaluation purposes. It first fruited in 2019 and they've been consistent producers since. This mango has tremendous potential as a superior late-season alternative to Kent as it hasn't had the same disease problems and offers better flavor. The trees are vigorous growers with vertical, open canopy.

We have seen enough from Carla at this point to recommend it as a backyard tree to growers in Florida, and we feel it will probably perform well in southern California as well due to its vigor.

 

Flavor: Classic Acidic

Country: Florida-USA
