Just in case if you have never heard of a mango, then let it be my pleasure to introduce them to you! These are a tropical/subtropical medium to large tree that can grow in a container or directly into the ground. They need a minimum of 6 hours of full sun and can grow in a variety of soils. The very first mangoes originated from India hundreds of years ago, since they there are over 500 varieties in the United States alone! Every mango variety has different flavor profiles, shapes and growing habits but they all are a delicious sweet fruit to eat. Here in South Florida, our climate affords us the luck to grow some of the tastiest and hardiest varieties of mango trees just for you.
'Mallika' is another top five mango for me, originally from India but fast becoming a South Florida favorite! This mango is absolutely delicious with fiberless flesh, and a sweet melon/honey/citrusy flavor. It's an oblong fruit with a slight curve at the bottom, but with all the accolades it has, there's a catch, this mango should be picked at a mature green stage (it should snap at the stem with a slight pull) and left to ripen in a cardboard box or brown paper bag at room temperature for about 10-14 days for optimum deliciousness; the flesh will be bright orange. It will take some practice to get in "the know" on when they're ready to pick. The 'mallika' is a small compact tree with high fruit production which is perfect for containers and small landscapes. Considered a dessert mango in India. A great disease resistant and hardy grower. Mid-season mango here in South Florida - fruit ripens from June through July.
Our mangoes are sold in a 3-gallon because it's less expensive to ship for you. The 3-gallon plants are usually around 3 ft high depending on the variety. Though we do have most of the varieties in a 7-gallon as well so please contact us if you are interested. Because it is a living plant we expedite shipping to make sure the plant arrives healthy and alive. Please read the section about our plants on our FAQs page for more information.
