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.

'Cecilove' is a selection of 'Carrie' from the breeding program of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL. Its pollen parent was likely 'Zill Indochinese' (Zinc), and its flavor group is firmly of the Indochinese hybrid sort. Originally number 34-24, it was given the name 'Cecilove' by Richard Campbell who named it after his wife.

 

The fruit is ovate in shape, medium-sized and yellow at maturity. The flesh is completely fiberless, yellow and with a rich indochinese hybrid flavor with a defined tart-component that fades as the mango becomes riper, transitioning to a syrupy sweetness with note of 'cola'. Brix measurements of this fruit taken with a refractometer have typically hit in the 20s, outstanding for any mango. The fruit matures mid-season, and its seed is monoembryonic.

The trees have grown somewhat slowly thus far with a very compact and dense growth habit. From what we've observed they are appropriately grouped as "dwarf"

 

Cecilove is an oustanding interesting newer variety as its eating quality is superb, comparable to other Zinc relatives such as Venus, Sweet Tart, and Buttercream. With outstanding disease resistance to go along wwith exceptional flavor and small growth habit, we highly recommend this variety to anyone wanting to grow mangos in Florida.

Flavor: - Indochinese-hybrid

Country: Florida-USA
