This mango is a seedling of ‘East Indian’ from the breeding project of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL (planting # L-24).
It strongly resembles East Indian in flavor and color, but was thought to have less problems than its parent in south Florida. The shape is more oval than oblong. It can be juiced like East Indian, but is also consumable as a sliced fruit despite fiber content, which isn't as considerable as its parent. The flavor is rich in spice and terpenes, and very aromatic as well.
We planted one in 2017 in the hopes that it will do better than East Indian has for us. It fruited well in 2019.
Flavor: Indian/West Indian
Country: Florida - USA
