Coconut Cream was selected by Gary Zill from his breeding program in Boynton Beach, FL. It is one of only a few patented mangos in existence, and was a cross between the ‘Edward’ and ‘Gary’.
It has become famous for its pronounced coconut flavor coupled with a rich sweetness. This trait has made Coconut Cream a very highly demanded mango; unfortunately the production from the trees thus far has been somewhat disappointing.
The fruit are medium sized, oval shaped with a bumpy surface and yellow, developing some pinkish blush.
The flesh is soft, light yellow, fiberless and goes overripe rather quickly. The seed is small and polyembryonic.
The trees have rather unwieldy, spreading growth habits and are fairly vigorous growers. They are early/mid-season mangos, ripening primarily from June through July.
