The Tebow Mango Tree was initially developed by David Sturrock in West Palm Beach, 1972. Tebow is a cross between two Mangoes: Edward and Kent. The Tebow Mango Tree combines the large yields of the Kent Mango Tree with the high quality flesh of the Edward variety to make a champion mango worthy of the tree’s namesake, football legend Tim Tebow. The Tebow Mango Tree produces pale yellow, pink blushed, one-pound fruits that are juicy, sweet, and completely fiberless.
Tebow Mango Trees grow mid to late season fruit that ripens from July through August.
Tebow Mango Trees reach heights of 15 to 20 feet, and spreads of about 18 feet. They are suggested for in-ground growing within USDA Zones 9 to 11, or in pots in colder locations. These tropical fruit trees like well drained, sandy loam soil and plenty of water and fertilizer. Plant a Tebow Mango Tree in your garden and score a tropical fruit touchdown.
