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 is reportedly from Egypt, though none of our Egyptian customers seem familiar with it. It is yellow and has a long oblong shape, with decent fruit size.

The flesh is pale yellow, firm, fiberless, and very finely flavored, belonging to the Indian/West Indian flavor group. It is comparable to mangos like Step, ST Maui and Taymour in flavor. The seed is monoembryonic, unlike most Egyptian mangos. The tree has a spreading growth habit and is very vigorous. Like some other large, oblong shaped fruit it is very prone to splitting on the tree.

We planted Gaylour in 2017 for evaluation. It first fruited in 2019 and we have been very impressed with its eating quality ever since. It appears to be a mid-season fruit here.

 It has been resistant to mango bacterial black spot and anthracnose, but fruit splitting has proven to be a major issue in recent years, particularly after periods of heavy rainfall.

Flavor: Indian/West Indian

Country: Egypt
