Zill C-17

Zill C-17

SKU: 000303

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.

C-17 is a seedling of 'Zill-80' from Gary Zill's breeding program in Boynton Beach, FL. 'Gary' may have been its pollinating parent.

Like other 'Zill-80' progeny we are evaluating it among potential mid-to-late season alternatives to older disease-prone cultivars.

The tree finally fruited for us in 2022 about 4 years after grafting. It has struggled with micronutirent deficiency to some extent. It has a vigorous, open canopy. The fruit are large in size, roundly shaped and have a light yellow fiberless flesh. The flavor is a rich, classic subacid type. It appears to be a late season mango.

The fruit had some physiological issues initially but C-17 requires further evaluation at this stage.

 

Flavor: Classic-acidic

Country: Florida - USA
