The Alphonso mango is seasonal and like the other Indian varieties only available mid-April through the end of June. They have an uber sweet, rich, creamy, tender texture and delicate, non-fibrous, juicy pulp.
Our favourite by far!! Catch them whilst you can!
During the warmer seasons, some mangos may arrive ripe.
Place these mangos in the refrigerator. Keep any unripe mangos at room temperature. Mangos shouldn’t be refrigerated before they are ripe.They will continue to ripen at room temperature becoming sweeter and softer to the touch within several days. To speed up the ripening process place mangos in a paper bag with a ripe banana.
Once ripe, mangos can then be moved to the refrigerator, this will slow down the ripening process. Whole, ripe mangos may be stored for up to five days in the refrigerator.
