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 was selected in 1948 by Ed. P Davis, a mango grower in Miami, FL. It was most likely a seedling of Haden as were many selections made during this time period. ( It should *not* be confused with 'Fairchild Ruby', a name conferred on the Zill J-12 which is a different variety) As the name suggests, the Ruby fruit have eye-catching color, turning a bright red with some yellow background color.

 

Sometimes they can be solid red. They have an oval-ovate shape and are usually kind of small, usually weighing less than a pound. The flesh is medium-firm, yellow, with scanty fiber, containing a monoembryonic seed. The flavor is squarely in the mild-classic Florida group, comparable to the like of Haden and Irwin. 

 

The trees are low-medium growers, with spreading canopy. They possess decent anthracnose resistance and even fruited in Loxahatchee Groves for us.

 

Ruby is a mid-season variety in south Florida and ripens from late-June into July most years. Thus far we would grade it as only moderately prone to bacterial spot and rot fungi.
