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.

A member of the classic Florida mango group, Valencia Pride originated as a Haden seedling planted  in Miami, FL in 1937, fruiting in 1941. It was quickly recognized for its attractive appearance, good flavor and production traits and propagation began in the 1940s resulting in it becoming a common backyard mango over a period of decades.

 

The fruit are large and wide, oblong-sigmoid shaped, with yellow background color and pinkish blush covering much of the fruit well before maturity. The flesh is firm, light yellow, with only scanty fiber, containing a monoembryonic seed. The flavor is of the classic sort, medium sweet with light stone fruit and honey character. The sweetness can vary considerably year to year on Valencia Pride.

 

The trees have an earned reputation as fast, vigorous growers with vertical growth habit and open canopy. They must be trained well and not overfed to keep their size in check.

 

Due to this factor Valencia Pride is a poor choice for people who require a small tree, but they can provide excellent shade. They have very good anthracnose resistance and will even fruit well in the humid western communities of Palm Beach county.

 

They can be alternate bearers for some, but have been steady and good producers for us. Sometimes the fruit can be prone to splitting open on the tree, particularly after heavy rainfall.

 

They are a midseason mango, ripening primarily from late-June into August.
