IMPORTANT READ BEFORE Make your Grafting Request Order

Deadline for Fall 2023 Orders is May 01st/2023.

Orders will be grafted this Spring, and should be ready in the Fall/2023.

A 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.

Himsagar is one of the most popular cultivars grown in north India, West Bengal, and Bangladesh.

Unfortunately, it is not clear if the variety commonly known as Himsagar in that region can even be found in Florida.

We have a tree we obtained from a nursery in southwest Florida, who received their original budwood for their own tree from a man named Ron Hensley who had travelled to India and brought it back in the 1990s. 

This Himsagar  based on descriptions does not sound like the Himsagar in West Bengal, which is a round fruit shaped similarly to the Florida Kent. So we are not quite sure what our Himsagar tree is, but it finally matured a crop in 2019.

They have an oval-oblong kidney-shape. The flesh is yellow, firm, and somewhat bland and insipid; the flavor is probably best described as indochinese actually even though this mango was supposedly collected in India. We topworked this tree some years ago after deciding it was worthless.

Adding to the confusion is that the Himsagar contained in the collection of the USDA seems to also be a separate cultivar as well (see USDA Himsagar). 

Flavor:  Indochinese

Country: India
