Did you Know?

  • ......that the first mango plants introduced into Jamaica were ‘captured’ on the high seas on their way from the East Indians to the West Indies by Lord Rodney’s ship H.M.S Flora in 1782. They were first planted at the private garden at Gordon Town, St. Andrew, belonging to Hinton East.

    The seedlings were numbered on arrival, eg. the number eleven. The Bombay mango was introduced later in 1868 at Castleton Gardens. (VisitJamaica.com)
