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.

This mango is from Gary Zill's breeding program in Boynton Beach, FL and was a Keitt seedling, possibly pollinated by 'Gary'. It is one of the finest flavored of the varieties to be selected from the project.

It has an *extremely* sweet and robust flavor that can be too much from some. It is a real sugar bomb. The flavor falls in the classic group and is comparable to Honey Kiss, but with even more intensity and sweetness. The flesh is yellow, fiberless, and contains a polyembryonic seed. It can sometimes develop some internal breakdown/jelly seed but we don't consider this a fatal problem for the cultivar.

It was released in 2016 and we planted several in 2017 for evaluation as a potential late-season alternative to Keitt.

The trees are moderately vigorous-to-very vigorous in growth habit, with vertical, open canopy. They have been impressive producers for several seasons now. Though we suspect Cotton Candy is at least moderately prone to mango bacterial black spot, it may not be as susceptible as its parent the Keitt. Its season more mirrors that of Kent, a July to August timeframe for maturity.

Flavor: Classic

Country: Florida-USA
