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.

Philippine was probably introduced to the US before or very shortly after 1900  by way of Cuba, where it was commonly grown from seed due to being polyembryonic. The iteration grown here in Florida is the Carabao-type, the most popular mango in the Philippines, where it is grown on wide commercial scale. The fruit are sigmoid-oblong, small, turning a solid yellow when ripe. The flesh is yellow, fiberless, soft, with a nice tropical-sweet Indochinese/Saigon type flavor, though the fruit often get over-looked due to their size.

The fruit does get larger in the Philippines, leading some to question whether it is the same Carabao, but it is indeed the same. The fruit have excellent anthracnose resistance and have good resistance to bacterial spot and rot as well. This makes Philippine a good candidate for people trying to grow mangos under higher disease pressure in more humid parts of Florida.

The trees are vigorous, vertical growers and highly un-precocious, usually taking a while to bloom for the first time. They have a reputation for being alternate bearers in the Philippines but they have actually been consistent strong producers for us for the most part. Philippine is an early season mango ripening from May-to-July.
