Mango (MANGIFERA INDICA) varieties - collect them all!

Before we moved to Florida, we thought there was only one variety of mango - from the grocery store. It was nice to discover that there are over 400 of them! After we had a chance to participate in a tasting of different varieties, we realized that we have to have them all... and started collecting them!

The diversity of mango is so huge, and yet each one has individual tastes and features. Sometimes it's hard to make a choice of which variety to chose for planting, so if you have enough yard space - do not hesitate to plant as many as you can. You will never regret it.

However, even if your yard is a postage-stamp size or you live in an apartment complex, it is still possible for you to grow a dwarf or semi-dwarf mango that won't take much space and may be grown in a container, rewarding you with delicious fruit.

The appreciation of the mango began over 4,000 years ago in India and throughout Southeast Asia. It was there that the first selections of improved cultivars were cloned from vast orchards and untamed jungles. The ensuing millennia brought great recognition to the delectable fruit, and now it is known by more people worldwide than the peach.

Commercial production of the fruit now spans six continents, including here in Florida where most of the world’s commercial varieties were developed. The Tommy Atkin, Haden, Keitt, and Van Dyke remain the most popular commercial varieties, and they were all selected in Florida less than 100 years ago. Although Florida did enjoy a brief stint as a commercial mango producer, the fresh fruit market is now dominated by Mexico, Brazil, and Columbia. Ironically, the mango has never been more popular domestically, but the product has changed dramatically.

Growers in warmer states are finding enormous satisfaction growing and harvesting one of the world’s finest fruits right in their own backyard. However, the needs of the dooryard grower are very different than those of a commercial producer. Dooryard growers generally prefer small trees that require minimal care and bear only the highest quality fruit. The criteria for commercial selections emphasize production, handling characteristics, and a red color.

The mango varieties that we grow represent the finest selections from around the world including those selected here in Florida.
