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.

We obtained this mango by mistake from a nursery, and its origins are unclear but we speculate that it may have 'Glenn' in its parentage.

 

It is a small oddly shaped fruit, similar in shape to Martin with a pot-bellied appearance.

The skin is a solid yellow at maturity, the flesh a light orange color and fiberless, containing a monoembryonic seed. The flavor is in the classic group with dried apricot notes, and bears some similarities to Glenn though perhaps sweeter.

 

The tree has a spreading growth habit with open canopy and  long wavy leaves that resemble Glenn as well. 

 

The tree flowers easily, and the primary season is from May to June, though we have had April fruit from it twice. Unfortunately, Mario has proven to be susceptible to bacterial black spot of the fruit, calling into question whether we'll continue to grow it. After showing reduced losses in 2019 we have opted to keep the tree as some customers are quite fond of it.
