The Fairchild mango is ripe when it is soft and it typically changes color from green to yellow. It has dark yellow and juicy flesh, which is fiberless and has a rich and aromatic flavor and contains a monoembryonic seed. It usually ripens from June to July in Florida.
It was named a 2010 Curator's Choice mango for the 2010 mango festival at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden.
The Fairchild mango originated in the Panama Canal Zone during the early 1900s. The fruit was named after the family of David Fairchild, who had taken a liking to the variety. It was first brought to the United States through Hawaii in 1926, then introduced to Florida in 1936 by David Fairchild.
