Super Alphonso aka India, or Zill 36-8. Original name 36-8 was for a seedling of Zill-80 from the breeding program of Gary Zill. Jakarta may have been its pollen parent. It has since been re-named Super Alphonso and may have had several other names at varying points of time, including India.
The fruit is roundly shaped like its maternal parent, and its flavor is somewhat reminiscent of Zill-80 as well though perhaps superior and with more of a hint of Indian spice (hence another name India). The fruit does not taste like Alphonso however. 36-8 trees appear to have been steady and heavy producers.
The fruit does not ripen well on the tree, but when harvested mature green and allowed to ripen over the course of 7-10 days or so, the eating quality is excellent.
This mango could have commercial potential if it can prove resistant to fungal diseases in South Florida, which we will be evaluating for going forward.
