|Mangifera 'Sophie Fry'|
|Hybrid parentage||'Julie' x unknown|
|Breeder||Laurence H. Zill|
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.
The cultivar 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.
