|Hybrid parentage||'Zill' x 'Kent'|
The original tree was grown on the property of Laurence Zill in Boynton Beach, FL, and was reportedly a seedling of the Paheri mango. A 2005 pedigree analysis indicated that Jakarta was likely the result of a cross between the 'Bombay' and 'Kent' varieties.
Jakarta did not gain widespread acceptance as a commercial mango, however it did find a market as a nursery stock and dooryard tree in Florida.
The fruit has a round to oblong shape, and develops a distinctive sunset orange–red color at maturity, averaging a little over a pound in weight. The flesh is yellow and fiberless, with a uniquely resinous but rich flavor and aroma, and contains a monoembryonic seed. The fruit mature from June to August in Florida.
Jakarta trees are vigorous growers and form dense, rounded canopies.
This mango does not come from Jakarta.
