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.

Zill-80 is thought to have been a Kent seedling, and was selected by the Zill family in Boynton Beach, FL, so named because it first fruited in the year 1980. It was grafted by the Zill nursery for some time in the 1980s but later discontinued. In the 1990s, Gary Zill used Zill-80 as one of the maternal parents for his breeding project, and it is a parent of several newer cultivars including Fruit Punch, 36-8 (India/Super Alphonso), Edgar, Carla, Marlys, Crystal, C-17 and others.

 

The fruit are large, roundly shaped, developing yellow color with bright red blush at maturity. The flesh is firm, fiberless, and dark yellow, containing a large monoembryonic seed. The flavor is in the classic-acid group and very delicious, with mixed notes of citrus and peach and a very tangy component that many people enjoy. We regard it as one of the better late season varieties. The fruit can sometimes have issues with uneven ripening . 

 

The trees are moderately vigorous growers with spreading open canopy.They have good anthracnose resistance and produce fairly well, although the fruit can often develop a large unsightly anthracnose spot at the top.

 

Unfortunately it is likely Zill-80 possesses at least some susceptibility to bacterial spot and rot fungi, the extent to which we are still attempting to verify. We planted a small tree in 2017 for evaluation. It fruited in 2019 and did display some susceptibility to MBBS but hasn't been too problematic in recent years.

Zill-80 is a late season mango ripening from late July  through primarily August.
