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.

40-26 was a Julie seedling from the breeding project of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL. It may have the 'Gary' mango in its parentage as well.

We planted a small tree in 2015 or 16 and it started producing fruit in 2017. They are very small, oval-to-round shaped and turn greenish-yellow at maturity, softening while still on the tree.

The flesh is very soft, yellow and fiberless. The seed is small and monoembryonic.

The flavor is exceptional, in the coconut flavor group with terrific sweetness. It tastes very similar to the Gary mango but with better production habit with a stronger tendency to produce female flowers. It appears fairly disease resistant, including having good resistance to bacterial black spot.

We're excited about 40-26 and finally planted a second tree in 2022.

Flavor: Coconut

Country: Florida - USA
