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.
Duncan was an Edward seedling selected by David Sturrock in West Palm Beach, FL and the result of a cross between the Edward and a Philippine mango. It was named after Ralph Duncan of Boynton Beach, who was an employee of the Water Control District that had contributed to a book written by Sturrock. Sturrock approach-grafted the seedling to a mature-fruiting stump of a different variety, and conseuqnetly was abe to get the hybrid seedling to fruit much faster than typical for Florida, producing its first fruit approximately only 2 years after planting.

 

Duncan was observed to be a highly productive and disease resistant tree, producing medium sized clean yellow fruit with yellow flesh that has an Indochines/Philippine-type flavor with zero fiber, containing a monoemrbyonic seed. Consequently David Sturrock patented the Duncan, making it one of the few Florida mangos to receive a patent.

 

Duncan trees are low vigour growers with spreading growth habit, and are very manageable. The fruit have a long season lasting from late June into early August, and the later fruit tend to be superior to the earlier maturing ones.

 

It has some of the best disease resistance of any mango cultivar we're aware of, displaying excellent resistance to all the major diseases impacting mango in south Florida, including the newer bacterial spot and rot diseases.

 

We still harvest the original Duncan tree, along with about 20 others. In addition to being one of our most important mangos for fruit production, it also makes excellent rootstock.
