Creme Brulee

SKU : 00062

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.

Creme Brulee was selected as a seedling of Edward by Gary Zill from his breeding program in Boynton Beach, FL. It had only fruited a couple times for him and was described as having an exceptional Indian type flavor. We started growing it in 2017 as a topwork to see if we can get it to fruit better in our coastal zone and it first fruited for us in 2019. We also have an additional Creme Brulee tree that is growing on 7DN dwarfing rootstock that has fruited since as well.

It is a medium-sized ovately shaped fruit. The flesh is yellow, fiberless, and flavor is firmly in the Indian/West Indian flavor group and is *very* impressive, containing a monoembryonic seed. However, we have observed a tendency of the fruit to ripen from the bottom-upward, resulting in softnose and uneven ripening at times. In 2021 however this was not a problem so further observation is needed. The trees flower very well and easily, but the bloom can be prone to anthracnose.

They have had a low-to-moderate vigor growth habit with dense, spreading canopy similar to that of Edward. Creme Brulee is a mid-season mango for us ripening from late June into July.
