This planting of mangos dating from 1955 is close enough to the ocean to benefit from good air circulation which minimizes the effects of fungus, so we omit fungicides, as well as insecticides. Often the bloom and fruit is adversely affected by organisms we don't counteract so we are thankful for what sets and matures when freezes, thunderstorms, & hurricanes permit us to have a harvest.
Most of our fruit is sold as fully mature, meaning that it is nearly ripe on the tree. Some late maturing varieties (Keitt, Kent, for example) must be picked before showing signs of ripeness due to how they ripen from the seed and often spoil internally if left too long on the tree. Many varieties are picked as they turn ripe color on the tree, and these fruit are in high demand because they are at their peak of flavor potential.

We are a family owned and operated mango orchard that was established in1955. Located east of I-95 in Boynton Beach, we benefit from the ocean breeze which keeps fungus to a minimum, so we do not use pesticides nor fungicides.
We have an ongoing search for superior varieties of mango, therefore we have limited quantities of many varieties. We sell by the pound from our growing location and are closed on Saturdays. It is best to phone prior to coming for fruit so as to learn availabilty.
