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.

Orange Essence is an excellent new mango from the breeding program of Gary Zill of Boynton Beach, FL (planting # 40-33). It was a seedling of Kent that may have had Gary as its pollen parent. 


The fruit are roundly shaped like Kent, medium sized and turn yellow at maturity. The flesh is yellow, firm yet fiberless and has a wonderfully and intensely rich Gary-type citrus flavor with terrific sweetness (distinct from the citrus flavor found in Lemon Meringue and its descendents). The seed is monoembryonic.


It is a later mid-season mango ripening from July to August. We planted several Orange Essence trees in 2017 for evaluation and they have impressed us with their performance and disease resistance.


Flavor: Citrus

Country: Florida-USA
