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.

Little Gem was a selection from the breeding program of Gary Zill, originally planting number 29-26. It was a Julie seedling, and its pollen parent may have been 'Gary'.

The fruit is small and round, turning orange near maturity sometimes with some reddish blush as well. The skin is thick, and flesh firm but fiber-free. It has a very nice medium bodied Indian/West Indian-type flavor. The fruit have *outstanding* disease resistance. The seed is small and monoembryonic, and makes very nice rootstock.

The trees are low-to-moderately vigorous, compact growers with very dense canopy. They tend to be heavy producers of late season fruit that ripen from the end of July well into August. Little Gem has been one of the more impressive performing later season mangos amongst the newer hybrids, and we now have several of them growing in our program. It is likely a very good choice for backyards anywhere in south Florida as well as commercial groves due to its high productivity and excellent disease resistance.
