“The Mango Factory” began in 1964, when the late Jack Flowerree “The Mango Man” purchased 23 acres of raw native land on a tropical island in Florida. For the next 42 years, he invested his time clearing and contouring the land, preparing the soil, planting, transplanting, grafting, trimming the trees, nurturing, picking, processing, marketing and shipping the fruit, through drought, floods and hurricanes.
“The Mango Factory” continues today producing five varieties of mango that will harvest generally May through the first few weeks of September. Pictured are the delicious Valencia Prides.
Here is “The Mango Man” still going strong at 80 holding a delicious Kent mango. Notice the lush grass and park like setting of the trees in the background. He spaced the trees 33 feet apart so that they would not crowd out the vital sunlight that gives his mangos the beautiful palet of colors.
Pictured from the left to right is Jack’s son, Doug Flowerree and his son Zac, processing mangos. Doug plans to continue serving the loyal customers many who have been coming for over 30 years and the many more that will discover the best tasting mangos in the world. We are now accepting orders on the website and shipping mangos to your door. This delightful fruit will make a great gift to share with your friends and relatives across the country.
