Maya is from Israel, and is probably one of the better Israeli mangos.
It is a round fruit shaped similarly to Haden, with beautiful red blush and yellow background color. The flesh is yellow, fiberless, with classic mango flavor and good sweetness. We consider Maya to be one of the better classically flavored mangos and compares well with varieties such as Bailey's Marvel and Ah Ping. It contains a monoembryonic seed.
The trees are good producers, but also highly anthracnose prone. They have a vigorous, spreading growth habit with open canopy. We are continuing to evaluate Maya's susceptibility to mango bacterial black spot, but suspect it will prove highly prone.
Maya matures from June to July in Florida.
