‘Sturrock’ was selected by David Sturrock in West Palm Beach, FL in the 1960s. It was a cross between the ‘Haden’ and ‘Duncan’, which Sturrock hoped would have the production of ‘Duncan’ but the color of ‘Haden’.
The fruit are oval to round in shape, turning a pale yellow color at maturity with limited pink blush. The flesh is firm, fiberless, and yellow in color, containing a monoembryonic seed. The flavor is in the classic group and has developed a minor following among our customers.
The trees are somewhat vertical growers and moderately vigorous. They have been very heavy producers. The fruit are highly resistant to anthracnose and also appear to be *highly* resistant to rot and bacterial spot as well. ‘Sturrock’ is an early season mango ripening from June to July.
