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 is a mango from Sri Lanka and probably the second most popular mango in that country after Karutha Colomban.

It is known for being able to fruit in wet areas mangos don't typically do well in.

The fruit are small, oval-oblong and turn greenish yellow to dull yellow at maturity. The flesh is orange, fiberless and contains a polyembryonic seed. It has an Indochinese-type flavor.


We obtained a tree in 2017 and it fruited in 2020. We have since determined that Vellai Colomban is the same mango as the Egyptian 'Hindi Bessenara', and we speculate that it was probably introduced to Egypt from Sri Lanka many years ago.


Flavor: Indochinese

Country: Sri Lanka
