This mango was selected from Gary Zill’s breeding program in Boynton Beach, FL as a Julie seedling, and may have had Nam Doc Mai as a pollen parent.

 

Gary Zill was less impressed with the fruit but Richard Campbell, then curator of Fairchild Garden’s fruit program, took a liking to it. Intially the fruit was named ‘Fairchild Diamond’, then later changed to ‘Diamond’, *not* to be confused with the ‘Diamond’ mango from Myanmar (aka Sein Ta Lone). 

 

The HW-14 is a compact tree and appears productive, though the fruit has a mild, somewhat odd objective flavor we compare to that of a vegetable. However, some people seem to really like it and we are growing one producing tree.
