It received attention from the Florida Mango Forum in the 1940s and got publicized and commercially propagated.
The fruit are ovate, medium-sized with a background yellow color developing red-pink blush.
The flesh is yellow, fiberless, with a mild classic flavor. The seed is monoembryonic.

Lippens is early season, ripening from June to July. After finding that it is very susceptible to bacterial black spot and rot, we top worked our Lippens in 2019.
