Zill 36-8 (India/Super Alphonso)

Zill 36-8 (India/Super Alphonso)

SKU: 000297

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.

'India' was the name that was originally given to 36-8, a seedling of 'Zill-80' from the breeding program of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL. 'Jakarta' may have been its pollen parent. It has since been re-named 'Super Alphonso' and may have had several other names at varying points of time.


The fruit is roundly shaped like its maternal parent, and its flavor is somewhat reminiscent of 'Zill-80' as well though perhaps superior and with more of a hint of Indian spice. The fruit does not taste like Alphonso however. 36-8 trees appear to have been steady and heavy producers.


The fruit does not ripen well on the tree, but when harvested mature green and allowed to ripen over the course of 7-10 days or so, the eating quality is excellent.


This mango could have commercial potential if it can prove resistant to the new diseases present in south Florida, which we will be evaluating for going forward.


Flavor: Classic-acidic

Country: Florida - USA
