Mango 'Haden' (Mangifera indica)Regular price $49.95
A radiant flush of red saturated the world of tropical fruit, and it’s all because of ‘Haden’ Mango (Mangifera indica 'Haden'). The gold-red glow of ‘Haden’ mango is a symbol of luck, which sums up the way this hybrid variety came along. It was a happy accident. No mango varieties showed this red color or near-perfect roundness before. It became the global standard for commercial production, and now 80 percent of the mango industry is ‘Haden.’ The original tree from which ‘Haden’ Mango came from is still located in Miami, Florida. You could say it’s the American tropical agricultural ambassador to the world.
Mango species are popular trees in the subtropical Southern home landscape. The glossy evergreen foliage of mango trees makes for a beautiful, shady canopy that requires little upkeep. Mango trees need room to grow, with the average tree growing up to 30 and 60 feet high. In the early spring, Mangifera indica develops clusters of flower spikes, and fruits mature over a matter of months. ‘Haden’ mango produces nearly-symmetrical round fruits, which appear green at first, and mature into a deep red shade. Pick, peel, and eat ‘Haden’ mangoes freshly off the tree! How can you tell when a mango fruit is ready to harvest? Your nose will know! You should be able to smell a sweet, piney aroma from mango fruit before plucking it off the tree.
