IMPORTANT READ BEFORE Make your Grafting Request Order

Spring Grafted Trees should be ready the following Fall. Deadline is May 01

Late Summer & Fall Grafted Trees should be ready the following Spring. Deadline is October 01

 

A Pre-Order 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.

Diamond 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. Its original planting number was HW-14

 

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  fruit is oblong shaped, yellow at maturity, and has a 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.

The tree has a slow-growing,  very compact growth habit with dense canopy. It is a mid-season mango for us usually irpening from late June into July.

 

Flavor: Thai

Country: USA
