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.

Fruit Punch is a seedling of Zill-80 from the breeding program of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL (planting number M-23).

 

Fruit Punch is oval in shape, medium sized and develops nice red blush color on the skin. The flesh is yellow, very firm and fiberless, containing a monoembryonic seed. The fruit fall under the classic-acidic/subacid flavor group and have a limited window period where the flavor is ideal. When it is on, Fruit Punch can taste quite exceptional. In other instances the flavor can be more average.

The trees appear to be good producers, but the fruit are moderately susceptible to bacterial black spot (visible in photo) and rot.

 

We planted a Fruit Punch tree in 2016 and it fruited in 2018. It has grown somewhat sluggishly, with vertical open canopy but has fruited consistently for us the last several years, and has become a popular variety with consumers. It is an early season mango for us usally ripening from late May through June.

 

Flavor: Classic Acidic

Country: Florida-USA
