Ice Cream originated in Trinidad and is likely descended from ‘Julie’. It was introduced to the US by Maurice Kong in the 1990s.
The fruit are very small, ovate-round in shape, and turn slightly yellow when they ripen. The flesh is fiberless with a very unique and complex flavor loaded with perfumy spice notes and sweetness. The seed is monoembryonic.
The trees are very slow growers, somewhat dwarfish, with distinctive thin leaves. Unfortunately they are very fungus prone and not very productive. For this reason they aren’t a good choice for backyards.
Ice Cream is a mid-season mango in south Florida maturing in July.
Flavor: Indian/West Indian
