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.

Not technically a mango (Mangifera indica), Mangifera casturi (or Kastoree) is a mango relative originally from Borneo, Indonesia that is a very small, round-oval fruit which turns purple is color. 

 

We have two types of Casturi trees in the ground in West Palm Beach and did manage to fruit one in Loxahatchee Groves at one point as well.

 

The fruit are very small,round, with orange fibrous flesh, light in flavor which some compare to lychee. They have a purple, almost bluish appearance hanging from the tree

 

The flowers and fruit are completely resistant to anthracnose, but the flowers can get powdery mildew and the fruit and foliage are prone to mango bacterial black spot.

Of the two Casturi varieties we grow, Casturi 6-26 has fruited more times.
