40-26 was a Julie seedling from the breeding project of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL.
It may have ‘Gary’ in its parentage as well. We planted a small tree in 2015 or 16 and started producing fruit in 2017.
They are very small, oval-shaped and turn greenish-yellow at maturity, softening while still on the tree. The flesh is soft, yellow and fiberless. The flavor is exceptional, in the coconut flavor group with terrific sweetness. It tastes very similar to the Gary mango. The seed is monoembryonic.
We’re excited about 40-26 and may topwork another tree into it.
