2019 Indian Mango Season
« on: April 13, 2019, 09:11:08 PM »
A good friend just called me up and notified me that the local Indian supermarkets have their shipment of Indian Mangos in.

Here is a thread from last year.
http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=27305.msg315024#msg315024

From past experience, I know that the early Mangos are usually not in their prime but I decided to buy anyways. They had three varieties available. Alphonso was 37.99 a box, Banganpalli was 34.99 a box and Rajapuri was 34.99 a box.

I bought a box of Rajapuri. When they opened up the box, the Mangos were all green and relatively small considering that Rajapuri is a large mango that can get over a pound each.

The early Mangos are usually about 70-80% of their prime so Iím not expecting to be wowed by these fruit but Iím glad the Indian Mango season has begun

Thatís expensive for mediocre mangos. Iíll wait until kesars are release, only other mangos I enjoyed from India and Pakistan are kesar and Anwar Ratol

Hello All,

I have been calling Pioneer cash and carry in Artesia all day looking for Indian Mango.  Does anyone know if they are currently carrying any?  I want to buy some

Yes.  They were there last weekend at the larger store on 183rd street.  Alphonso, Banganpali, and Rajapuri for $35/box.
