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.
This mango was reported by the person who grew it (Frances Hargrave) to be a Haden seedling, but it almost certainly has Keitt in its parentage based on its growth, foliage and fruiting habit. Selected in Miami, this mango received some attention for being promoted by the Fairchild Mango Festival as a Curator's Choice tree several years.

 

It has a lanky growth habit with large leaves reminiscent of Keitt. It is a good producer of medium-sized, yellowish elyptically-oblong shaped fruit with fiberless flesh that have a mild sweet flavor comparable to Glenn. The seed is monoembryonic.

 

Anthracnose resistance appears to be reasonably good and the tree would fruit in Loxahatchee Groves under high disease pressure. We took budwood from this tree and planted another in West Palm Beach in 2017 which has been fruiting well for several years now. It may be a good choice for growers that want a productive classic flavored mango with less vigor than Glenn. The fruit and tree have been very disease resistant
. Frances Hargrave is a mid-season mango here ripening mainly from late June through July.
