IMPORTANT READ BEFORE Make your Grafting Request Order

Spring Grafted Trees should be ready the following Fall. Deadline is May 01

Late Summer & Fall Grafted Trees should be ready the following Spring. Deadline is October 01


A Pre-Order 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.

Lancetilla is famous for being one of the largest mangos in existence.


Some specimens have weighed up to 5 pounds but they generally weigh 3-4 pounds at maturity. It was selected in Lancetilla, Honduras many decades ago and brought to the US by Carl and Richard Campbell. Based on its shape, color and flavor characteristics we speculate it may be derived from Totapuri/Sandersha.  It was later erroneously promoted as a "small tree" or "condo mango", which it absolutely is not.  The trees are actually vigorous growers and require significant pruning to control.


The fruit are ovoid-oblong shaped, green-yellow with light red blush at maturity, and firm, fiberless flesh with an Indian/West Indian flavor that has a light resin component. Over time, this mango has improved enough that we actually enjoy its flavor some.


The fruit have a problem with splitting open while on the tree and can be susceptible to rotting fungi due to skin breaks. 


Lancetilla also tends to drop a disproportionate amount of its young fruit compared to other mangos. For these reasons, we do not recommend Lancetilla as a tree for people with limited space and options. It is perhaps best described as a collector's mango and a curiosity. The fruit ripen from July to August



Flavor: Indian/West Indian

Country: Honduras
