Mango that produces in the rain! - $30 (Pahoa)

We are stoked to let people know about Mangifera Casturi. Casturi is a species of mango that is different than the mangos people typically buy and eat. It is not anywhere near as susceptible to the fungus and molds that cause mango flowers and young fruits to fall off and make it so there's no fruit on the trees. Casturi fruits dependably year after year on 3 big trees in lower Puna where there is plenty of rain.

We have grafted trees for $50 and seedlings for $30. They are a poly-embrionic mango, so they are true to seed. Grafted trees will produce sooner and in general be a bit smaller.

Let the Casturi revolution begin!

We also have Mangifera Odarata, which is also a different species of mango that handles rains without issue. They typically fruit 1-3 times per year. See the attached flyer. They are also $50 each for grafts, no seedlings available.

In the end of 2024 we plan on having grafted trees for two more mango species that also produce consistently in rain climates, M. Rubripetala, and M. Lalijiwa. Check back in for availability.
