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.

Rapoza is from Hawaii, and was selected as a seedling of ?Irwin? by Richard Hamilton of the University of Hawaii in Poamoho in the 1985 and named after Herbert Rapoza.

It has been planted on some commercial scale in Hawaii due to its positive traits.

 

In Florida, it is sometimes mis-identified as ?Dwarf Hawaiian? (the ?real? Dwarf Hawaiian is also known as ?Tete Nene?, which we grow).

 

The fruit are known for their beautiful crimson red skin with yellow background color, are round in shape, medium-sized, with yellow, firm and fiberless flesh.The seed is monoembryonic. The flavor is in the classic group, light/medium-bodied with notes of stone fruit.

 

Rapoza is a mid-season variety in Florida generally ripening from July to August.

 

The trees are moderately vigorous growers (NOT dwarf) with spreading dense canopy, and are very good producers, with moderate-resistance to anthracnose and powdery mildew.

Unfortunately, Rapoza has proven to be highly susceptible to the new rots affecting mango in south Florida and we do not recommend its planting here.

 

In 2019, after several years of losing large quantities of the fruit to bacterial spot and rotting, we began top working our Rapoza tree.
