It is worth mentioning that Mango Haden and Palmer, for example, as well as Tommy, have many similarities, especially since Palmer and Tommy are descendants of Mango Haden. The Haden sleeve is characterized by being more rounded than the others. Its skin is of a very peculiar red color and the pulp is a very strong and consistent yellow, having few fibers (lint) in its composition, allowing a much calmer tasting, after all, there is less lint to get stuck in the teeth. The Haden mango still exudes a very pleasant aroma.

Nowadays, having a Haden mango tree is quite difficult, especially in Brazil, because this species of fruit has a problem called by specialists “high incompatibility”. But what does it mean? Well, the pollen that this mango produces cannot fully pollinate the flowers and, consequently, produce the fruit. This is because the pollen is not strong enough to do the job of pollinating the flowers themselves. It is a phenomenon that is still not properly known by scholars, so it is not known exactly what is the cause of this problem.

However, it is possible to understand how to plant Haden mangoes. For the project to work, it is necessary to intersperse mango trees of other varieties in the orchard, so that they can produce the necessary pollen grains for the pollination of the Haden mango flowers and, thus, produce the fruits.

It is worth mentioning that there is no risk of other types of mangoes being produced. This is because the fruit depends on the variety of mango trees you are producing and not on the pollen. A tip from experts is to use the Tommy species to intersperse with Haden, after all, the first is a daughter of the second, that is, it originated from it, so it can good examples of the sweet and tasty Haden mango. Because it is more difficult to be cultivated, Haden mangoes have a higher price compared to the others, and it is not by chance that they are widely used for export.
