This mango is thought to be a seedling of Zill-80. It grows on the former property of Laurence Zill in Lantana, FL., now owned by Cecil Brumfield.
The tree is a good producer of medium-to-large sized round shaped fruit that turn a brilliant fire engine-red color. The flavor is very good and belongs to the classic group, sweet with nice acid component to balance it. They mature mid-season largely in July.
We planted Crimson Delight in 2017. The tree flowered and set fruit in 2019 but ultimately didn't hold onto any fruit to maturity. We are optimistic it can fruit in 2020.
