At Publix--- Honey Mangoes for 69
« on: April 19, 2012, 02:19:19 PM »
These are yellow and from Mexico. These are the Ataulfo mangoes? They looked good. Maybe not all Publix have them because I don't see it listed in the weekly sales circular.

Trader Joes in SoCal got Ataulfo mangoes (listed as such) in yesterday. Listed at .69 each as well, mangoes are pretty good for this early. They were a little on the tangy side but otherwise good for store mangoes.

You guy's are killing me...69 cent's for mangoes >:(

We usually get mangoes for 2-5/kg

I hope Publix comes to Madeira ;D ;D ;D

"Honey mango" is what the Publix Ataulfos are marketed under.

I have seen them called "Champagne", "honey", and a few other names too. I think at Costco I saw them listed as Ataulfo.

Bought more mangoes today from Trader Joes, went through 4 yesterday. Decent mangoes for the start of the season. Going to keep an eye out at the Chinese and Vietnamese markets for Lychee's and Rambutan soon after  :P.

I think not awful is about the best you can expect from store bought. I usually like most of the ataulfo's I find. They may not be as good as FL grown mangoes in season, but they certainly beat the horrible store bought Tommy Atkins that used to be the only thing available in the offseason.

Picture of the Ataulfo mango below, taste is sweet with a simple flavor and a slight sourness, good texture with just little fiber near the seed. Overall a great mango for the price and time of year. Going to envy you FL guys when the mangoes do start rolling in!

Looks are deceiving, too bad it's just an ordinary tasting mango. Nullzy, you can buys those for .17 each at the Los Angeles wholesale produce market, they are in season right now.

JF,

I know I can find cheaper, Trader Joes is next door to my work. Yeah I agree, ordinary tasting mango. Its nice just to have a sweet and low on fiber mango right now  :). Sometime, I should try to make it out to the wholesale markets. The only thing is I hate dealing with downtown LA traffic.

It is kind of a pain but my mother lives off the 110 in Mt. Washington a few miles from Central. It's not bad if you go before 9:00am early in the week.
