Diab is a mango from Egypt, where it has fallen out of favor due to susceptibility to malformation disease. It is an extremely vigorous, upright grower and appears to have difficulty flowering in Florida. Ours has produced several crops though.
The flavor is similar to other Egyptian cultivars such as Zebda and Hindi Besenara, with a syrupy sweetness and is closer to Thai rather than Indian flavor. It is a large, oblong fruit that turns a mottled green-purple color at maturity.
it is too anthracnose prone for interior areas, and we have found that Diab is highly prone to bacterial spot and rot of the fruit. Consequently we began top-working the tree after the 2018 season.
It is a mid-season producer in south Florida.
