This box may contain multiple "Julie" mango varieties, all of which essentially taste the same. Julie, Julie Seedling, and Super Julie, for example.
The 'Julie' mango, also called 'Saint Julian', is a named mango cultivar that was made popular in the Caribbean.
Super Julie mango is a seedling of the Julie mango from the breeding program of Gary Zill in Boynton Beach, FL. A seedling is simply a tree that has been planted from seed instead of grafted. Each time a seed is planted, a new variety is created.
The Super Julie mango is very similar in flavor and texture to Julie mango, but it is typically a little larger and easier to grow. The Julie mango tree loves being close to the coast, but the Super Julie can produce well closer inland.
The flavor is very sweet and the texture is very soft and fiberless. It typically is ready to harvest from June to July.
The total weight of each box varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit:
- Small Box contains up to 3-5 pounds.
- Large Box contains up to 8-10 pounds.
*CANNOT SHIP TO CALIFORNIA*
USDA restricts the shipment of mango from Florida to California at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.
