A descendant of the Haden mango, the Valencia Pride was first grown in South Florida in the early 1940s. Valencia Pride Mangoes are medium-large, oblong oval-shaped, and grow to between one and two pounds each. The fruit is silky and fiberless, juicy, and has a sweet flavor with the perfect amount of tropical tartness. This high-quality mango is a home-growing favorite due to its combination of a fantastic tasting fruit and a fast growing, medium-sized tree that is easy to grow.
The Valencia Pride Mango Tree grows to a mature size of about 30 feet tall and 15 feet wide. The early blooming Valencia Pride will have fruit that is ready to eat from late spring through early summer, depending upon weather conditions and planting location. You can grow one of these excellent tropical fruit trees in the ground within USDA Zones 9 to 11, or in a pot in Zones 4 to 11. They do best in well drained, slightly acidic soil with frequent deep watering and consistent fertilizer. Start yours now and enjoy one of the finest eating mangoes from your own yard in no time.
