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.

40-17 was From Gary Zill's breeding program in Boynton Beach, FL.

We top-worked a tree into 40-17 around 2018. The tree produced its first fruit in 2021 and had its first full crop in 2022.

The fruit is oval shaped, turning yellow at maturity. The flesh is yellow, fiberless and has an extremely rich flavor similar to 'Gary' mango with notes of citrus.

The tree has a spreading growth habit with dense canopy. It does not appear to be a very vigotrous grower and may be a variety that could be kept small with minimal pruning. 40-26 appears to be a mid-season variety here.



Flavor: Citrus-Gary type

Country: Florida - USA
