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.

Southern Blush was probably a seedling of 'Eldon', selected by the Zill family in Boynton Beach, FL decades ago.

 

The fruit are medium-to-large in size, round-oval in shape, developing beautiful light red blush over much of the sun-exposed portion of the fruit The flesh is firm, yellow, and has minimal fiber, containing a monoembryonic seed. The flavor is medium-bodied and belonging to the classic Florida group with light stone fruit elements.

 

The trees are moderately vigorous growers with spreading open canopy. The fruit ripen mid-season in Florida mostly from late-June through July.

 

Southern Blush is highly prone to anthracnose and struggles with fungus in the interior.  We have also discovered it is highly susceptible to bacterial black spot and rot fungi, to such a degree that we do *not* recommend its planting  in south Florida anymore.

 

In 2018, we cut our Southern Blush tree to a stump to be top worked.
