Wanted: Large Indian variety mango trees, South Florida
« on: June 30, 2020, 10:41:10 PM »
Hi, I am interested in buying large Indian variety mango trees (15 gallon or larger) such as Kesar, Neelam, Sonpari, Dusehri, etc. Can you please let me know which nurseries in South Miami may have these trees for sale? Thank you very much. Enjoy the mango season...

When I was at Lara Farms a few weeks ago I recall he had Kesar and maybe Sonpari, large bearing trees, not cheap. Id call and ask him. Good luck.

Thank you Canesgirl. I called them and found Kesar but no Sonpari. I am trying Excalibur next.

My pleasure to assist. Thought you wanted Miami, but if youre willing to go north, have you checked with Alex? Its on his list:

Try Al's Fruit Trees on 182nd Avenue in Miami.  A word to the wise, the larger the tree the longer it will take to establish and you are inheriting the shape and care it was given (usually not a good thing).  Any real reason you want/need a large tree?

As for variety, your best bet is Mallika, Son Pari or Kesar (all very different) for availability, quality and production in South Florida.

Ive sourced 4 trees from Sayyid; Mamey sapote, Super Hass Avocado, papaya and Barbados cherry (which just started to bloom  ;D). Always happy with his plants and pricing. If I had a place for it, Id grab that Son Par in a minute.
