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.

Hatcher was a hybrid between Haden and Brooks planted by John Hatcher of Lantana, FL in the 1930s. The fruit was touted for being a mid-season mango that bridged the gap between Haden and Brooks, with large size, good flesh-to-seed ratio and fiberless flesh.

 

The fruit are round, can exceed 2 pounds, and develop a pastel red blush color. The flavor is of the classic-group, the notes of peach and stone fruit. They have a monoembryonic seed.

 

The trees tend to be alternate bearers but produce heavily in "on" years. Hatcher has been found to be highly prone to rot fungi, now frequently losing a majority of its crop to this new disease. We no longer recommend its planting in southeast Florida, and have topworked both of our Hatcher trees already because of this problem.

 

The fruit mature from July to August. The trees are vigorous growers with vertical, open canopies.
