'Gary' was a seedling of the 'Carrie' mango. It was named after horticulturalist and nursery owner Gary Zill. This continued a tradition of mangoes named after members of the Zill family, which include the 'Zill', 'Dot', and 'Carrie' cultivars as well.
The 'Gary' has been sold as a nursery stock tree in Florida. 'Gary' trees are planted in the collections of the USDA's germplasm repository in Miami, Florida and the Miami-Dade Fruit and Spice Park in Homestead, Florida.
The fruit is small, averaging less than a pound, is of ovoid shape and has yellow skin.
