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.

Ugly Betty was a seedling of Carrie from the breeding program of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL (planting # 7-20). 

The fruit are oval-ovate in shape with a very uneven, bumpy surface, with a light green-yellow skin color at maturity with mottled pink blush. The flesh is yellow, fiberless, and very soft. It has a very good flavor that is similar to Carrie, with plenty of spice notes, a hint of resin, and rich sweetness, belonging in the Alphonso-Indian flavor class. The seed is monoembryonic.

Our tree has a vertical growth habit and has been a stagnant grower for us. Its production has been unimpressive thus far, as has been the case for other Ugly Betty trees we've had the opportunity to observe.

 On the positive side, the tree has shown an ability to fruit in marginal growing territory in Loxahatchee so it does possess at least some anthracnose tolerance.

It is a mid-season mango here, fruiting primarily in July.

Flavor: Indian-Alphonso

Country: Florida - USA
