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.

Zebda is from Egypt, where it is very widely grown and often used at the very ripe stage for making drinks and processing.

 

The fruit are medium-sized, ovately shaped, turning a dull yellow color when ripe, often staying light green when grown inland. The flesh is very soft, melting, fiberless, with a floral syrupy flavor found in several other Egyptian varieties. It contains a polyembryonic seed.  The fruit have good shelf life when harvested green.

 

The tree is a vigorous grower with spreading, dense canopy.

 

Production would be good if the tree flowered regularly, but like other Egyptian cultivars it hasn't done so frequently in the warm winters we've experienced the last several years.

Zebda does has very good anthracnose resistance though and successfully fruited for us in humid Loxahatchee. It is a mid-season variety here, ripening from late June into July.
