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.

This mango is from Cuba, and the name in Spanish means "black". The fruit are small, ovate, and often stay green when ripe. The flesh is orange, moderately fibrous, with a *very* sweet classic-group flavor.  In fact prieto, despite its unimpressive appearance, is probably one of the better classic flavored mangos. The seed is polyembryonic.

Prieto trees grow slowly, and are very manageable despite a vertically orientated growth habit. We have two in the ground at this time and they've been reasonably productive. The trees flower very easily in south Florida's climate. Prieto hasn't had many issues with bacterial black spot but the fruit are prone to anthracnose spotting after harvest which can make them look ugly, but doesn't impact internal quality.

Flavor: Classic

Country: Cuba
