Mangifera indica ‘Carrie’
Common Name 'Carrie' Mango
Type of Plant Tree
The Carrie Mango was cultivated in South Florida where it began to sell commercially in 1949. It quickly became popular due to its lack of fiber, soft texture and rich flavor. The tree itself has a faster growth rate than many other varietals. Its fruit is known to remain green or yellow even when ripe enough to eat.
Requirements Often cultivated in containers, this variety of Mangifera is resistant to fungus and disease. Its harvest season is June to July, and it can be grown anywhere with alkaline, well draining soil. Partial shade or morning sun is best.
