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.

This mango was selected by the Zill family in Boynton Beach, FL and was probably a chance seedling of 'Cambodiana', possibly with a Florida-Indian type as another parent.Though named 'Zill Indochinese', it is commonly shortened to 'Zinc'. It is a parent of a number of mangos released from the Zill breeding program in recent years.

 

The fruit is small-to-medium-sized, round in shape, turning light yellow at maturity with a small amount of blush at the top. The flesh is firm, yellow, with an Indochinese aroma very similar to that of 'Cambodiana', containing a monoembryonic seed.

 

The flavor is very good, in the Indochinese-hybrid group with bright floral sweetness coupled with an acid component to balance it out. Some people describe it as a little "chalky" but we like it very much. They can sometimes encounter issues with uneven ripening particularly if left to ripen on the tree.

 

The trees are moderately vigorous growers with spreading, open canopy. They and their fruit have good resistance to anthracnose and produce at a moderate rate.  Bacterial spot resistance has been strong as well.

It is a mid-season variety and the fruit ripen from July to August. It has a very extended season most years.
