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.

Kent was a seedling of Brooks grown on the property of Leith Kent of Coconut Grove, FL and a hybrid between Brooks and Haden. It received recognition as being a good quality mango with excellent production characteristics, leading to its quick commercial adaptation. Today, Kent is one of the most widely planted commercial mangos in the Western Hemisphere. It is also grown commercially in other parts of the world such as Australia, South Africa, and has even been introduced to India. It is the parent of some other mangos including Peach Cobbler, Orange Essence, Gold Nugget and Providence.


The fruit is round in shape, medium-to-large in size ranging from 1 to 2 pounds. It will turn a background yellow color at maturity with some red blush covering the sun exposed part of the fruit. It has a firm, yet fiberless flesh with a nice medium-sweet peach-noted flavor in what we describe as the classic group.


The flesh can be prone to internal break down if conditions are too wet, and the seed will often sprout inside the fruit. They ripen from late-July to September. The trees are fairly vigorous, with dense upright canopies. Production tends to be very heavy.


Disease resistance is mediocre and anthracnose can be a problem for both flowers and fruit deep in the interior. Sadly Kent is *highly* prone to mango bacterial black spot and associated rots, to such a degree that we do not recommend its planting in south Florida anymore.


We began top working our Kent trees to other varieties in 2017 and have removed it from our fruit production program.
