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 speculated to have been a cross between a Valencia Pride and Carrie mango, and was selected as a random seedling by the Zill family in Boynton Beach, FL.

It has an oblong shape, medium-sized and turning a light yellow at maturity.

The flesh is soft, orange-yellow in color and fiberless, containing a monoembryonic seed.

It has a strong aroma and the flavor itself is very strong, with similar terpenes to the Carrie but a little sweeter and spicier, to such a degree that some people find it overwhelming. Sometimes it can also taste like bubblegum. However, many people from India and the West Indies really love its interesting Alphonso-class flavor.

 

The trees are typically moderately vigorous growers, though we have a producing 6+ year old tree that is still quite small. Their growth habit is somewhat upright but can be trained. Val-Carrie is an under-planted mango that often goes forgotten. After starting with 2 trees, we added a third via top-work. They are moderate producers in terms of yield.

The fruit have good anthracnose and bacterial spot resistance and better shelf life than Carrie. Val-Carrie is an early-to-midseason season mango, ripening from June to July here.

Flavor: Indian-Alphonso

Country: Florida - USA
