General Information:

This amazingly-flavored mango is from the breeding program of Gary Zill of Boynton Beach, FL (planting # 23-21). Its maternal parent was ‘Springfels’ and paternal parent ‘Gary’. 

 

The fruit are medium-to-large in size, ovoid with a rather ugly bumpy skin, turning a light yellowish green color at maturity with a small amount of red blush when grown close to the coast.

 

The flesh is light-yellow, medium-firm, and fiberless.

 

The flavor is nothing short of awesome, with tremendous pineapple notes and acidity coupled with very high degree of sweetness.

We have measured Pineapple Pleasure fruits with brix ratings in the mid-20s, a testament to how sweet it can get.
