Mangifera indica

A Californian variety, selected for its cold tolerance. It originates from an Indian strain of mango and is thought to be a seedling selection of the Mulgoba mango. Keitt mangos turn from orange-green to bright green when ripe. Fruit are fibreless and have a lovely smooth texture, the flesh is golden orange with a delicate flavour with a hint of lemon undertones and a smooth sweetness. Late season
