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.

Edgar was originally thought to be a cross between Edward and Gary, and is from the breeding program of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL, hence the combination name "Ed-Gar". However, while the original record is unclear, it is now thought to probably have been a seedling of Zill-80.

The fruit is ovately shaped, medium sized developing some light red /orange blush with yellow background color. The flesh is fiberless but quite firm, with a very high quality classic subacid-type flavor.

The trees appear to be good producers and the flavor has been well received. We planted an Edgar tree in 2017 and two more in 2018 and they have been consistent fruiters for several years with very good fungal resistance. The trees are moderately vigorous growers with spreading, open canopy.

Edgar is a later mid-season mango for us ripening primarily through the month of July and sometimes into early August.
