Wise was selected by David and Jenny Burd of Naples, FL.It is a large, ugly round mango that turns yellow-green at maturity.
The flesh is very firm, yellow, with a minimal amount of fiber. The seed is monoembryonic. The flavor belongs in the classic group and can be quite good during dry conditions, comparable to Beverly.
The tree is a vigorous grower with vertical growth habit and open canopy. It is capable of bearing heavy crops.
Wise is a mid-late season mango ripening from July to August. We have unfortunately found the fruit is highly susceptible to mango bacterial black spot and rot fungi. We will likely be top working the tree at some point in the future due to significant crop losses.
