About

Nothing signifies the Australian Summer like the Mango. The second most grown fruit crop in the world (second to the banana), this luscious, fleshy, juicy, decadent fruit is a taste sensation with the added bonus of being nutritious. Considered the “King of Fruit” and the “Food of the Gods” the mango can be simply eaten fresh or featured in salads, drinks, desserts or pickles.

Sublime, the mango with its fleshy fibrous texture, tastes like it smells – sweet and peachy with a slight refreshing sour undertone.

It is available from August through to April and is in abundant supply from September to November and January through to April.

Tips and Hints
Although considered a Summer time fruit the Mango is in limited supply in December.
