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.

There is a very famous mango in India that carries this name, but this mango we have in Florida known as "Langra Benarasi" is NOT the same Langra found commonly in north and central India, and its true origin is unclear. This is a medium-sized round mango that develops extensive red blush at maturity.

 

The flesh is yellow with very light fiber, rich and sweet with a nice light resinous finish and some hints of melon. The fruit have a very short shelf life and should be harvested mature green and not allowed to tree ripen unless they will be consumed quickly to avoid going overripe. Production is average-to-good. The seed is monoemrbyonic.

 

The trees are very vigorous growers, with dense spreading canopy.

 

The fruit appear to be moderately or highly susceptible to bacterial spot and rot, and are too anthracnose prone for the deep interior as well. It performs acceptably along the coast and may be a variety to consider for south California.

 

Langra Benarasi is a mid-season mango ripening from late June into July.
