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.

This mango is from Egypt, and is sometimes spelled "Tymour". In Egypt it has fallen out of favor due to susceptibility to mango malformation disease. Based on conversations with Egyptian clients, we have reason to doubt whether this tree is the real Taymour. The budwood was obtained from the USDA, and thus we have taken to referring to it as "USDA Taymour'.


The fruit are ovate in shape, small-to-medium size, turning a light yellow color at maturity, some with a minor amount of pinkish blush. The flesh is yellow, soft, and completely fiberless. A truly freestone fruit. The flavor is very sweet and contains many terpenes, reminiscent of Bombay. The seed is polyembryonic.


It is a vigorous grower with long internodes, which we've been able to train into an outward spreading habit so that the tree is about twice as wide as it is tall.

It has struggled to bloom during mild winters and doesn't look like it will be a strong producer here, which is unfortunate because its eating quality is excellent. However, the tree has borne at least some fruit going back several years, so it earns some credit for consistency. We suspect it would flower for completely in a colder climate such as California.
