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.

Sometimes spelled "Totapari" and also known as "Bangalora" and "Sandersha", Totapuri is from south India where it is grown on major commercial scale, largely for green consumption.

 

It was introduced to the US in 1901 under the name Sandersha, and was recognized for fruiting well in south Florida. The ripe flavor was considered mediocre however, and this limited any commercial acceptance. Totapuri's main claim to fame here is that it was the parent of the Brooks cultivar, from which a number of major commercial mangos can trace their descendance, including Keitt, Kent, Hatcher, and others. 

 

The fruit are large, with an oblong, curving shape and raised stem end.

They turn yellow at maturity with a noticeable pink blush. The flesh is yellow, with a minor amount of fiber and of mild Indian/West Indian flavor, but it is generally not consumed ripe, instead eaten at the crunchy green stage with condiments. The seed is long and monoembryonic. 

 

The trees are very vigorous growers with spreading, somewhat spindly growth habit and open canopy.

 

We have found Totapuri to be *highly* prone to the new rot fungi diseases and it appears to have passed the genes favoring susceptibility to its descendants. Fortunately, we sell almost all the fruit at the green stage long before the fruit reaches maturity when the rot becomes a problem. Were this not the case, we likely would not keep the tree. Fruit left to ripen are rarely consumable due to this issue.

 

Totapuri is a mid-late-season mango ripening from late July through August.
