A Condo variety from Hawaii, fungus resistant and tolerant to high air humidity. It was selected by University of Hawaii in 1970s and was a seedling of Irwin. It was named after Herbert Rapoza, a horticultural technician at Poamoho Research Station, Uni. of Hawaii.
This mango has a very compact growth habit. Excellent for containers! It is a heavy producing small tree with excellent fruit quality. The ripe skin is yellow with a red or purple blush. The fruit is the oblong shape of 28 oz, the flesh is tangerine orange and firm with a rich sweetness of Indian spice and just a hint of citrus. The season was late in comparison with other varieties and the fruit had exceptional storage and long distance transport characteristics. The fruit matures over a long period, mid-July to October. It has good flavor, excellent disease resistance, and good appearance. The tree growth is vigorous but manageable and responded well to annual pruning with consistent, heavy yields and excellent disease tolerance. The Rapoza mango is one of the favorite choices for the small mango industry in Hawaii, because of the red color and generous size of the fruit. It was selected for Hawaii because when it would flower in Spring and lose its flowers to anthracnose, it would re-flower in the drier summer and produce excellent fruit in Aug.-Sep.
