Davis Haden was a mutation of Haden selected and named by Ed P Davis, a mango grower in Miami in the 1940s.
It was considered an improvement over Haden with less fiber and superior yield and anthracnose resistance. The flavor is somewhat mild stone fruit.
The fruit are oval-ovate and turn a brilliant red color at maturity, and medium sized.
Unfortunately, Davis Haden has proven to be highly susceptible to Bacterial Black Spot and rotting fungi, to the point that a majority of its heavy crops are lost to these diseases for the last several years.
We have topworked our tree into a Juliett, and no longer recommend Davis Haden for planting.
