Emerald was selected on Pine Island, FL and probably had Bombay in its parentage.
It has been promoted by Fairchild Garden’s Mango Festival as a curator’s choice tree in the past. The fruit has a firmer flesh than Bombay and tends to get slightly larger.
The flavor is similar though not quite identical, and belongs in the Indian/West Indian flavor group. We actually like this mango a lot but have been unimpressed by its production.
Emerald fruit are a light green color at maturity, sometimes with just a hint of pink blush. The shape is oval/round and the fruit tend to be small. They are mid-season and ripen mostly in late June/July.
Flavor: Indian/West Indian
