The original Zill tree was grown from a Haden seed planted in 1922 by Carl King of Lake Worth, Florida. A pedigree analysis estimated that Zill may have been a cross between Haden and Bombay. The tree later came into the possession of Laurence Zill, a horticulturalist and nursery owner whose family named the cultivar. The tree first fruited in 1930, and Zill began to be propagated by Lawrence Zill in 1940. The cultivar was named and described in 1945. Thereafter, Zill became heavily propagated due to its colour, excellent eating quality, and good production. It was planted commercially and widely sold as nursery stock. A must for the collectors!
