Keitt Season

'Keitt' is a Florida mango which has become one of the world’s most outstanding and sought after fruit. Excellent eating quality, disease resistance, reliable high yield, and late ripening time are some of the features of this four to five pound Goliath. While the fruits are extremely disease resistant, the juvenile trees are very difficult to grow due to disease problems so this veteran tree is valuable, and its fruits come every year without fail. This is not my tree, but half of it intrudes on my side so I usually help myself with my share of it. The real problem is that the birds and squirrels get to them way before they are ready in late September, October when the fruits really are ripened properly.
