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 mango is from Cuba, but most Cubans have never heard of it. It was probably a seedling of Haden or Kent, and has received some publication largely due to its promotion as a Curator's Choice cultivar by Fairchild Garden for their mango festival several years .

 

It is a medium-to-large, round-shaped fruit developing beautiful red skin blush with some yellow background color appearing as it ripens. The flesh is very firm, fiberless, and contains a small monoembryonic seed. The flavor is very mild, plum-like in the classic group, and The fruit seem to have a prolonged shelf-life.

 

The trees are vigorous growers, with open canopy and somewhat vertical growth habit. They flower well and tend to bunch-set fruit on the distillate ends of their panicles.

 

Anthracnose resistance is poor in the interior and it struggled to fruit in Loxahatchee for us, but fruits very well in West Palm Beach where it also flowers easily. Unfortunately We have discovered that San Felipe is somewhat prone to Mango Bacterial Black Spot.

 

The trees are vigorous growers with spreading, open canopies. San Felipe is a mid-season mango in south Florida, ripening from late June through July.
