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.

Phoenix is an exceptional selection from the breeding program of Gary Zill of Boynton Beach, FL, and was a 'Jakarta' seedling (planting # C-26). The tree was so named after the mythological Phoenix because it was cut back for removal but came back later and fruited. We planted several in 2017 and have a few grafted to Gary Zill's experimental dwarfing rootstocks as well.

The fruit is roundly shaped, medium-sized and usually develops some red/orange color at maturity. The flesh is yellow-orange, fiberless but firm, with a monoembryonic seed. The flavor of Phoenix has been difficult for us to classify but falls somewhere between classic and Indian flavor, with a strong subacid component to balance out its rich sweetness and having some resin present.

Regardless, we consider Phoenix to be an elite flavored mango and one of the best of the newer varieties. The trees flower well for us in south Florida and are vigorous, vertically orientated growers with open canopy. We would grade them as average producers for us thus far. The fruit have good resistance to mango bacterial black spot, but the flowers are very prone to both anthracnose and powdery mildew, so disease prevention or avoidance is important to achieving good crops with Phoenix.
