Jehangir is a variety from India that was named after a Mughal Emperor. It is a medium-sized round shaped fruit that develops very little color, with a fiberless, medium firm flesh that is very light in color, almost white. The flavor is resinous and spice-noted, with a moderate level of sweetness. It is somewhat similar to Alampur Baneshan in its flesh color and flavor. The seed is monoembryonic.
The tree has a very compact, slow-growth habit, and doesn’t appear to fruit very heavily in Florida. We managed to get some fruit from it in Loxahatchee a few times. Our tree in West Palm Beach struggled and had to be replaced with a new one which has been growing since 2016. It has flowered poorly since then but bore a good crop in 2019.
Flavor: Indian/West Indian
