Karen Michelle Mango – Pre-Order limited availability

Karen Michelle was an Edward seedling from the breeding program of Gary Zill of Boynton Beach, FL (planting # 1-15). It was named after the wife of Craig Campbell.

The original tree has reportedly been a very light producer. The fruit are large, ovoid and turn yellow when ripe. The flesh is medium firm, fiberless and has a rich-sweet balanced classic flavor very similar to Edward, with a touch more sweetness than its parent.

 

Mangoes are juicy stone fruit from numerous species of tropical trees belonging to the flowering plants genus Mangifera, cultivated mostly for their edible fruit.

The majority of these species are found in nature as wild mangoes. The genus belongs to the cashew family Anacardiacea. Mangoes are native to South Asia, from where the “common mango” or “Indian mango”, Mangifera Indica, has been distributed worldwide to become one of the most widely cultivated fruits in the tropics. Other Mangifera species (e.g. horse mango, Mangifera Foetida are grown on a more localized basis.
