'Sophie Fry' is perhaps best known for reportedly being the parent of the 'Carrie' mango, which became one of the more popular dooryard cultivars sold in Florida. A 2005 pedigree analysis disputed this, estimating 'Julie' was the likely parent of 'Carrie'; however the analysis did not include 'Sophie Fry' in the study, which could explain the discrepancy.
'Sophie Fry' did not become a popular dooryard variety nor gain commercial acceptance. A 'Sophie Fry' tree is planted in the collection of the University of Florida's Tropical Research and Education Center in Homestead, Florida.
The fruit is oval in shape, with a rounded base and rounded apex, and averages around 8 ounces in weight at maturity. The skin is green to yellow in color.The nearly fiberless flesh is orange in color, juicy, and aromatic, with a rich, sweet flavor. It contains a monoembryonic seed. Fruit production is considered to be good.
