Manilita mango skin turns a pastel red color, and the flesh is fiberless and sweet. In Florida, the fruit ripen early (April).
The fruit originates from the Pacific coast of southern Mexico. It is descended from the Philippine mango variety brought from southeast Asia, particularly from Manila, Philippines. This was possible through the Galleon Trade that existed between Manila and Acapulco, Mexico (1565–1815).
Manilita was introduced to the United States, where it has gained acceptance as a dooryard cultivar for home growing due to its small growth habit and fruit color. It was listed as a curator's choice mango at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden's 2010 International Mango Festival in Miami, Florida, and has been promoted by Fairchild for its positive characteristics.
The total weight of each box varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit:
