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.
There is alot of history in this cultivar of mango, the 'Zill' mango is a local favorite variety of the haden mango which originated in the 1940's just north of us in Lake Worth, FL. It's a great clustering mango that has minimum fiber, firm meaty flesh, sweet with a hint of pineapple flavor and very juicy; totally one of my top five favorite mangoes! A compact round fruit that cluster together, great producer of fruit though will tend to ripen all within a very short time of each other. It will be a relatively large upright growing tree so it will need room if planted in a landscape and a good pruning schedule. A disease resistant and hardy grower. Early season mango here in South Florida- fruit ripens from May through June.

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.
