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.

Po Pyu Kalay was introduced to Florida from Myanmar by Maurice Kong, and later given the name "Lemon Meringue" by Gary Zill, which it is now more commonly known as.

 

It is a small, oval-oblong yellow mango with pale yellow, fiberless flesh with a very rich, sweet-citrus dominated flavor that most people adore. It is one of the most popular mangos among customers who try it, though its flavor can be washed out in heavy rains. The seed is small and polyembryonic.

 

The trees are vigorous, vertical growers with dense foliage and are reasonably good producers.

 

Both the trees and fruit are anthracnose resistant, but they tend to attract a lot of pests and the trees can sometimes suffer dieback problems. The fruit are moderately susceptible to bacterial black spot, but we've found that fruit losses to it haven't been too severe in recent years and it wouldn't prevent us from planting them again.

 

Lemon Meringue is an early season mango, usually fruiting from May to July here. Despite the aformentioned issues, It is probably still a good choice for people in humid areas of Florida that desire an early season citrus flavored mango.
