Super Julie/Fairchild Ruby/J-12

Super Julie/Fairchild Ruby/J-12

SKU: 000257

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 was a seedling of Julie from the breeding program of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL (planting # J-12) and shows great promise. Richard Campbell had originally given it the name 'Fairchild Ruby' but this name could be confusing because there was already a Fairchild mango and a Ruby mango (see previous descriptions), so it has been re-named 'Super Julie'.

 

It is a small-to-medium sized fruit, oval shaped developing a beautiful ref color at maturity with light green/yellow background. The flesh is soft, fiberless, orange in color containing a monoembryonic seed.The flavor is deliciously rich and outstanding, in the Alphonso-group with abundant spice character and dessert-like sweetness. Its somewhere in between Julie and Carrie in flavor profile, yet superior to both in sweetness,with a brix in the 20s.  We consider Super Julie to be one of the finest examples of the Indian-Alphonso flavor group.

 

The tree is a *very* vigorous grower with spreading dense canopy. It appears to possess above average anthracnose resistance and can fruit in humid areas. Unfortunately, the fruit have proven to be quite prone to mango bacterial black spot and losses have been high in some years. The trees do flower very easily and have been fairly resistant to powdery mildew.

 

Super Julie is a mid-season mango here maturing from late June through July.

 

Flavor: Indian-Alphonso
