Hatcher Mangoes: Unique fruit brings residents to Lantana's Hatcher Mango Hill

LANTANA, Fla. - Located just off Interstate 95, a stone's throw west on Hypuloxo Road in Lantana, is a slice of Old Florida.

This is the location of Hatcher Mango Hill where mangoes are grown on 4 acres of groves that have been there since the early 1940s. 

Marilynn Hatcher's father in law crossed several mangoes to come up with this exclusive fruit.  

Known for it's large size and small seed, a Hatcher mango is also sweeter and juicier than most smaller mangoes.  It's a 5 to 6 week season for this variety of mango.   About 130 trees produce this special fruit. 

People drive from all over the state to get their hands on a Hatcher Mango.  

The stand to sell the mangoes is open daily Monday through Saturday from noon until 5 p.m. and Sunday 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
