The Tebow Mango, named after Tim Tebow (the award-winning University of Florida quarterback), brings an all-star team of qualities to the field. 

The Mango, a Tropical to Subtropical Evergreen Fruit Tree, is a member of the anacardiaceae family. Its relatives include Cashews and poison ivy. Like all mangoes, the Tebow grows deep, thirsty roots and enjoys full sun. Its glossy, dark green canopy of slender leaves produces flower clusters which blossom in a pyramid shape at the end of branches. These ripen into gigantic fruits by mid-summer and should be harvested before fully ripe. Be careful when picking, as mango tree-branches contain sap with urushiol (the irritant in poison ivy). The fruit itself does not contain any urushiol, so if you’re allergic to poison ivy, just wear gloves when picking from branches and you’ll be golden! 

This Florida-hybrid of a Kent (outstanding production) and Edward (excellent taste) mango makes for a  satisfying and hearty mango experience. The yellow-pink flesh cuts into a touchdown of tempting tastiness and can feed a whole football team (or family) with its heavy productivity. This fast growing Florida-Hybrid mango is definitely a touch down! 

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

Self-Fertile: 
Yes

Growth Rate: 
Fast

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.

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