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.

Chino is a large, round colorful mango from Cienfuegos, Cuba. It is a very old variety, having been described in literature around the dawn of the 20th Century.

We planted one in 2015 and it fruited in 2018.

Despite being reputed to be a fibrous, mediocre mango we found that the fiber was minimal and the flavor actually quite rich and sweet, belonging in the classic group and comparable to Bailey's Marvel and Maya. The yellow flesh contains a polyembryonic seed. On the downside, Its shelf life isn't very long and it can go overripe somewhat quickly.

The tree initially did not bear well relative to its size; it would flower reasonably well but fail to hold onto its fruit to such a poor degree that it only carried one fruit to maturity each of its first two seasons producing. Since then it has born much larger, more complete crops and appears it will be a steady producer going forward.

The tree's growth habit is vigorous, spreading with dense canopy.

We regard Chino as the best of the Cuban mangos and one of the finest members of the classic flavor group, standing up well with comparable varieties like Bailey's Marvel, Ah Ping, Spirit of 76 and Maya. Because of its vigor, it may be an option to consider for people trying to grow mangos in southern California.
