This mango was probably a Haden seedling and was selected in West Palm Beach, FL in the 1950s, obtained from the yard of an individual by Laurence Zill and Jack Faircloth, the former mayor of West Palm Beach. Faircloth named the fruit after his daughter. It was recognized as being a productive tree and having attractive-looking fruit.
They are medium-to-large sized, round-shaped and turn red with yellow background color at maturity. The flesh is soft, melting, and fiberless, with a medium-sweet classic flavor with some pineapple undertones. The seed is monoembryonic.
The trees are reliable heavy producers, but somewhat disease-prone. The flowers are fairly prone to powdery mildew and the fruit can develop a large anthracnose spot. On the plus side, Jaqueline fruited several times under heavy fungal pressure in Loxahatchee Groves for us.
They are very vigorous growers, with open upright canopy. It is an early season mango in south Florida, maturing primarily in June and early July most years.
