Pineapple Pleasure

Pineapple Pleasure

SKU: 000213

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.

This amazingly-flavored mango is from the breeding program of Gary Zill of Boynton Beach, FL (planting # 23-21). Its maternal parent was Springfels and paternal parent Gary. 

 

The fruit are medium-to-large in size, ovoid with a rather ugly bumpy skin, turning a light yellowish green color at maturity with a small amount of red blush when grown close to the coast. The flesh is light-yellow, medium-firm, and fiberless.

 

The flavor is nothing short of awesome, with tremendous pineapple notes and acidity coupled with very high degree of sweetness.

We have measured Pineapple Pleasure fruits with brix ratings in the mid-20s, a testament to how sweet it can get. The fruit have good shelf life as well. They contain a large monoembryonic seed.

The trees are slow-to-medium vigor growers, with spreading habit and open canopy. Unfortunately when disease is not controlled, the trees can be terrible producers when grown more than a few miles from the coast, often failing to fruit entirely due to anthracnose and powdery mildew susceptibility.

 

At our location in West Palm Beach, however, Pineapple Pleasure has produced reasonably well and flowers consistently well for us. Owing to its extremely high popularity among customers, we added more of it to our program in recent years.

 

It is a mid-season variety here, fruiting primarily in July.

 

Flavor: Classic-acidic

Country: Florida-USA
