White Piri

White Piri

SKU: 000282

IMPORTANT READ BEFORE Make your Grafting Request Order

Deadline for Fall 2023 Orders is May 01st/2023.

Orders will be grafted this Spring, and should be ready in the Fall/2023.

A 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.

White Piri is from Hawaii, and presumably derived from the Indian Pirie (aka Pairi or Paheri, which may also be synonymous with the Jamaican Bombay).

It is a larger fruit than the regular Pirie though and has a distinctive, superior flavor. It is one of the most commonly grown mangos in Hawaii after Haden.

 

The fruit is medium-sized, round in shape similar to Kent, and turns yellow with beautiful pastel red and orange blush at maturity. The flesh is yellow, medium-firm, and fiberless with a lovely aroma, containing a monoembryonic seed. The flavor is fantastic, wonderfully rich and sweet with abundant spice notes and a resin component reminiscent of Bombay. 

 

White Piri has a deep, complex flavor with a lot going on. It has become one of our favorite mangos and we have received great feedback on it from customers.

 

The trees have been relatively slow growers for us, with spreading and open growth habit.

They do not appear to be as vigorous as regular Pairi/Bombay trees, and seem to flower younger.

Based on reports it is not anthracnose resistant in Hawaii and is probably not a mango well suited for the humid interior areas of south Florida, but it seems to perform well near the coast. 

 

The fruit themselves  have not been bothered by bacterial black spot ; White Piri's only major disease issue here seems to be powdery mildew on its flowers.

 

The fruit ripen mid-season during July.
