Varieties: Redland. Season: Late Spring/SummerDark green, leathery, 10" waxy leaves. Inconspicuous 1-1/2" white and yellow flowers. Trees may have all male flowers, but the Redland variety has a perfect flower (male and female). Large brown, round to oval, scurfy fruit (similar to Mamey or Sapodilla in external skin texture). Sweet to slightly sub-acid, crispy flesh. Fruit softens when ripe. Eaten as fresh fruit, in drinks, compotes and jams. Flower to fruit in 11-13 months. Seed to fruit in 4 - 10 years. Grafted trees may fruit in 3 to 4 years. The Mamey is tropical and does not fare well in cold temperatures, surviving only a couple of degrees below freezing without major damage.

What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful
