Mango 'Coconut Cream' (Mangifera indica)Regular price $59.95
The Coconut Cream (or Creme) Mango is a relished new variety of Walter Zill’s South Florida creation. It is a patented and hard-to-find variety, with a cult following for its unique, coconut-flavored fiberless flesh.
The vibrant and semi-bumpy mango’s skin envelopes a deep orange, creamy flesh reminiscent of coconuts on their best flavor behavior. When ready to pick, the fruit turns from green to yellow on the bottom and ultimately takes on a lively orange to red outside hue at its peak.
A hybrid of the Glenn and the Gary, the Coconut Cream Mango has a heavy hype of its own!
Carrying on a combo of its parent trees’ best traits, the Coconut Cream Mango tree is relatively resistant to anthracnose along with other fungus and seems to keep from bruising even when falling from the tree. Hitting it’s harvest peak mid-season between June and July, it’s sure to be a hot summer day’s delight.
Tropical / Subtropical Evergreen Fruit Tree
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.
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.
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.
