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 was selected in Miami many decades ago by E.L. Cushman, and is of uncertain parentage. The budwood made its way into the hands of the mango-growing Dupuis family at some point and they labeled it 'Big Yellow'. Walter Zill later recognized that this mango was synonymous with 'Cushman'.

 

It is a round-shaped yellow fruit that often resembles a grapefruit. Its flesh is fiberless, yellow, with a distinctive orange "halo" outlining the periphery of the flesh near the skin. The seed is small and monoembryonic. The flavor is of the classic group and comparable to 'Edward'.

 

The trees can be very disease-prone and unproductive depending on where they are being grown. We don't consider them good choices for humid interior areas. They have moderately vigorous growth with spreading, dense canopy.

 

Cushman is a midseason cultivar and usually ripens July-August in south Florida.

 

Sadly we have discovered that Cushman is highly prone to mango bacterial black spot of the fruit. In 2019 we cut the tree to a stump to be topworked, but there are still a few small branches of Cushman left as of 2022.
