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.

Haden was a seedling of Mulgoba, a cross between the Mulgoba and a Turpentine mango. It was one of 4 dozen seeds planted by Capt. John Haden in Coconut Grove, FL in 1902 from fruit he had obtained from Elbridge Gale's Mulgoba tree in West Palm Beach. The tree fruited in 1910 and was named by his widow Florence. It was quickly recognized as the first promising seedling to be selected in Florida, and hastily became the most propagated mango in Florida and the first to be successfully grown on a major commercial scale in our state.

 

The fruit are round, medium sized, and turn a beautiful red with yellow background color at maturity. The flesh has a moderate amount of fiber, with a sweet classic peachy flavor. It contains a monoembryonic seed. The fruit can be prone to internal breakdown if allowed to ripen on the tree and susceptible to post-harvest anthracnose. Unfortunately Haden is also fairly prone to bacterial black spot, and many of its progeny even more so.

 

The trees themselves are vigorous growers with spreading dense canopies. Haden has long been outclassed by many varieties that have come out since it debuted, but most Florida varieties can trace at least part of their lineage to it. It is still loved by many older Floridians who grew up with Haden and have a nostalgic attachment to it. Remarkably, What is thought to be the original Haden tree still stands in Coconut Grove today.

 

The fruit are early season here typically ripening from May to July.
