This was a Keitt seedling from the breeding program of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL (planting number 43-26). It was originally going to be discarded before being rescued by his brother Walter Zill, who found the trees to be very productive at his property and gave it the name ‘Honey Kiss’.
The fruit are small-to-medium sized, yellow developing some pink blush near maturity. The flesh is yellow, firm, fiberless, and in the classic-flavor group, with nice sweet flavor and have proven quite popular. The seed is polyembryonic.
We’ve found the tree to be a slow, low-vigour grower with a spreading growth habit. They are a late-season mango ripening between late-July and September.
