In 1902, the Hadens sailed to West Palm Beach and brought back four dozen Mulgoba fruits to plant on their property in Miami, Florida. In reports written to the Florida State Horticultural Society, some trees produced “thin, poor looking fruits, “ some were elongated and some were compact and round. However, on one single tree, everything came together in 1910.
The fruit ripened into a blushed orange color, unlike most mangoes up until that point, which simply ripened from green to yellow. In a few short years, tens of thousands of young Haden mango trees popped up in Miami and throughout the state.
The Haden mango is quintessentially Florida and is the foundation of J.F. Haden’s Mango Liqueur.
