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.

Harvest Moon was reportedly an Edward seedling from Gary Zill's breeding program in Boynton Beach, FL (planting number 4-20) which may have crossed with Carrie or Val-Carrie.

The fruit are huge, weighing up to more than 3 pounds, round, and shaped more like a Kent mango. They turn light orange at maturity sometimes with some red blush. They are firm fleshed, sweet in the classic-flavor group with notes of plum. The fruit have been resistant to anthracnose and do not seem to get bacterial black spot; they do have a problem with sometimes splitting open on the tree before maturity, however. The seed is large and monoembryonic.

 

The trees are very vigorous, upright growers with dense canopy. They have developed a reputation as poor producers that drop a lot of the fruit they set, but our Harvest Moon trees have performed acceptably and are best described as average producers considering the size of the fruit.

 

Harvest Moon matures from July into August in West Palm Beach, making it a later-midseason variety here.
