Extra sweet, plump and juicy Darwin Kensington pride are the mangoes of choice this week. Strong volumes were dispatched last week and this week looks even stronger. The cheeks have filled out nicely and we are seeing a lot more of the larger size fruit which is an amazing eating experience. Our Imperfect Picks line of mangoes are great value this week too. Darwin has escaped the winds and much of the blemish on the fruit is branch rub. Whilst it’s not pretty to look at, the fruit is amazing eating. Our trays are also a great value option. The fruit eats every bit as good as our premium range, but you can buy it at a fraction of the cost!
HOW TO PICK
The best way to buy a mango is to simply use your nose and look for the fragrant tropical fruity aroma. Ripe mangoes should have a full colour and will give slightly to the touch. Avoid very soft or bruised fruit.
HOW TO STORE
Unripe mangoes should be stored out of direct sunlight at room temperatures for a few days until ripe. Once ripe, a mango should last in your fruit bowl for at least two to three days. Never refrigerate unripe mangoes and do not store them in plastic bags as they need to breathe.
