Nam Doc Mai is a premium mango cultivar that was developed in Thailand and introduced to Florida in 1973. It is considered the best-tasting, fiberless Asian mango, and it fruits prolifically on semi-dwarf trees, perfect for containers or for limited space in the landscape.

A member of the Cashew family (Anacardiaceae), the Nam Doc Mai mango grows 10-15 feet tall and produces highly aromatic, elongated, golden-yellow fruit blushed with pink. The pale-yellow flesh has a smooth, silky texture and is intensely sweet, tasting of honey with floral notes, and is considered an excellent dessert-quality mango. The ripe fruit can be eaten out-of-hand or added fresh to fruit salads, garden salads, smoothies, and ice cream. The sour, unripe fruit can also be eaten and is used in Thai cuisine and for mango chili paste.

The trees bloom in late winter to early spring and generally produce fruits in June-July. Sometimes flowers bloom at different times on the branches, which extends the harvest time. Nam Doc Mai grows in full sun, in rich, moist, well-draining soil. Its small size makes it great for containers or as an attractive fruit tree for a modest-sized property. It is hardy in USDA zones 9 to 11.

Plant Type: 
Tropical / Subtropical Evergreen Fruit Tree

Harvest Season: 
Late-Spring to Late-Summer, depending on variety

In the early spring, Mangifera indica blossoms with clusters of flower spikes, and fruits mature over a matter of months, giving way to delicious juicy oblong fruits just in time for summer. 

Mature Size: 
The mature size of a mango tree really depends on the variety of mango. Dwarf Mango varieties (aka condo mangoes like our Pickering Mango) can be dwarfed in planters and max out at around 6-10 feet, whereas some mango varieties reach upwards of 20-40 ft tall. A mango tree's canopy spread will be almost as wide as the height of the tree. 

Soil & Moisture: 
Mango trees prefer neutral to slightly acidic soil that is well-draining, rocky, sandy, high, and dry. It requires moderate moisture throughout the year with more watering throughout flowering and fruiting season and less during the winter. Mango trees will generally grow well in many soil types as long as there is good drainage.

Light Requirements: 
Full Sun


Growth Rate: 

Zone Hardiness: 
Outdoors 9-11 (with frost protection until established); Patio/Greenhouse 4+

There is some slight variation of cold tolerance depending on variety. Dwarf varieties of mango trees are really well-suited for containers and can easily be brought indoors during the winter.

Large Pot Size: Grafted and capable to produce within 1-3 years.
X-Large Pot Size: Grafted and capable to produce within 1 year.

    Thriving Well

    My 2 Nam Doc Mai plants came packaged beautifully and so far, even in this cold weather (60’s) here in Southern Cal, they seem to be doing well. Very happy with my purchase 😊.

    Absolutely the healthiest tree I've ever received by mail. I repotted it into a much larger pot and in 3 months it's already had 2 big growth spurts. To say it's thriving in Texas zone 9a is an understatement. Highly recommend!
