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.

Young is a selection from the breeding program of David Sturrock in West Palm Beach, FL in the 1960s, and was originally labelled Edward x Kent #14. Edward was its maternal parent and Kent the pollen parent.

 

Sturrock liked the fruit and saw enough good qualities in it that he elected to patent it, making Young one of the few patented mangos.

 

Decades later, a nursery in Homestead began propagating the Young under the erroneous label "Tebow", so if you have a tree marked such you actually have a "Young".

 

The fruit are roundly shaped, very similar to Kent, and are medium-to-large in size, turning yellow at maturity with pink blush covering much of the top when sun exposed. The flesh is firm, fiberless, and yellow, containing a small monoembryonic seed.  The flavor is very mild and delicate, belonging in the classic group and reminds one of mixed fruit juice.

 

The trees are moderately vigorous growers with spreading, open canopy. They have good anthracnose resistance and set fruit prolifically, and can be very heavy producers.

 

We have found that it does have some degree of susceptibility to rotting fungi, though nowhere near as bad as Kent, and doesn't seem to have issues with bacterial spot.

 

Young is a mid-season mango here, ripening from July to August.
