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.

Sophie Frey was a seedling of Julie selected by the Zill family in Delray Beach, FL many decades ago and named after Laurence Zill's grandmother. Its claim to fame is being the maternal parent of the 'Carrie' mango. Very few Sophie Fry trees are left in Florida.

The fruit are small, yellow, and oval in shape similar to the Julie. They have a yellow flesh with scanty fiber, sweet with an Indian-Alphonso group type flavor with strong spice notes. The seed is monoembryonic. The fruit appear to have good disease resistance.

 

We grafted a one in 2016 and planted it in 2017 for evaluation. The tree began producing in 2021. It has a moderately vigorous, spreading growth habit with dense canopy.

 

Flavor: -Indian-Alphonso
