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 was selected by Walter B. Eldon of Miami, FL in the 1940s. Its parentage is unknown, but it's definitely descended from Indian-types. The trees are very good producers and have been introduced to West Africa as a commercial variety. Eldon is thought to possibly be one of the parents of the 'Southern Blush' mango.

 

The fruit is medium sized, and turns a tomato red color at maturity. The flesh is fiberless, with a mild classic-type flavor. It contains a monoembryonic seed.

 

The fruit goes overripe quickly if allowed to ripen on the trees, and should be harvested mature green. We had a large old Eldon tree that produced massive crops. This tree was cut to a stump however due to disease problems. A smaller Eldon tree was also cut back and top worked. Unfortunately we have discovered that Eldon is highly prone to bacterial black spot, and do not recommend its planting in south Florida for this reason.

It is a mid-season mango ripening primarily from late June through July here.
