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.

Venus was a seedling of Zill Indochinese (Zinc) from the breeding program of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL (planting # 33-10). We speculate that one of Kent or Beverly may have been the pollen parent. 


The fruit are round in shape, medium-sized, and turn yellow with some light red blush at maturity. The flesh is firm, fiberless, and light yellow in color. The flavor is nothing short of excellent, with a decadent and complex mix of sweetness and acidity that most people who try it fall in love with.

Sometimes the fruit can ripen a bit unevenly, like its sibling the Sweet Tart. Nonetheless, it is one of the finest tasting mangos you can eat. The seed is monoembryonic.


The trees are upright, moderately vigorous growers with open canopy, and have excellent anthracnose resistance of the flowers and fruit.


Unfortunately, we have discovered Venus to be highly prone to bacterial black spot of the fruit, which in turn seems to make it more prone to rotting fungi. For this reason, we can't recommend the tree to backyard growers in south Florida, and have begun top-working our Venus trees into other varieties.


Venus is a mid-season variety with its primary crop typically occurring from July to August, though we have had some May fruit from them the last several years.


Flavor: Indochinese hybrid
