Frieda's Specialty Produce Begins Australian Mango Season
LOS ALAMITOS, CA - Frieda’s Specialty Produce is bringing sweeter, juicier, and more aromatic mangos to American shoppers this season with the Kensington Pride and R2E2 Australian mango varieties.
“Shoppers are looking for enjoyable food experiences and many will pay extra for high-flavor produce,” said Alex Jackson, Senior Account Manager at Frieda’s Specialty Produce. “These mango varieties meet the requirements: beautiful color, great flavor, and texture. Shoppers will be looking for them.”
Australian mango growers are excited to increase the volume of their imports to the US this season, Frieda's notes, and American shoppers are primed to experience the silky, sweet flavor that Australian consumers have enjoyed for years.
The two varieties offer a silky texture with no stringiness, a long shelf life, and a beautiful blush sure to draw consumers’ eyes. The Kensington Pride mango is medium-sized, oval in shape, and displays a beautiful pink-red blush. R2E2 is a rounder, larger mango with an exceptional flesh-to-seed ratio and deep orange coloring.
“There are only a few importers of Australian mangos and the demand for these varieties is high,” noted Jackson. “It is best to pre-book now for the first of the year.”
Frieda’s says its mangos are in good supply, but expected to sell quickly, so act fast!
