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.

This mango is now commonly known as "Dwarf Hawaiian" despite actually being from Puerto Rico, where it was given the name "Tete Nene". It was likely a Julie seedling, and its growth habit and foliage resemble that of Julie, as does the flavor. 


As the name suggests, Dwarf Hawaiian are compact, dwarfish trees that require hardly any pruning when young.


They appear to be very sensitive to changes in temperatures and humidity, resulting in early flowering every year in the fall, and usually will flower multiple times during the course of the bloom season in south Florida. Typically this means the tree will hold multiple crops. 


The fruit are on the small side, round-shaped and turn red in color with minimal sun exposure. The flesh is aromatic and has a moderate amount of fiber, but possess a wonderfully rich and spice-filled flavor with the right amount of sweetness. The seed is very small and monoembryonic. We are big fans of this mango and customers seem to enjoy it too, particularly those who appreciate the Julie.


The earliest fruit tend to come in April but the second crop occurs from June to July. It does appear to be too anthracnose prone for interior areas, but performs impressively close to the ocean. It has become one of our most important mangos over the last 5 years.


Flavor: Coconut

Country: Puerto Rico
