Summer Produce Spotlight: Mangoes

It’s finally mango season! If you’re yet to pick up some delicious mangoes from your local grocer, don’t worry – there’s still plenty of time.

In Queensland, mango season usually starts around October and can last all the way into April if it’s a strong season.

In today’s blog, we’re sharing some of our favourite facts about the summer fruit that people love to eat and look forward to eating all year.

Health Benefits of Mangoes:

  • Rich In Nutrients
  • Boosts Immunity 
  • Supports Heart Health 

But the health benefits aren’t the only reason we love mangos – they are also delicious!

Keeping Your Mangoes Fresh

Plenty of people love mangoes due to their versatility. Whether you’re sipping on a mango smoothie to cool off on a hot today or adding in to your favourite Christmas lunch salad, mango adds a sweet taste and an enjoyable texture to summer classics. 

To ensure you get the absolute best out of your mangoes this season, here are some tips to help you keep them ripe and delicious for longer!

  • If your mangoes are yet to reach ripeness, make sure you’re keeping them at room temperature.
  • If you want them to reach ripeness even sooner, place your mangoes in a paper bag at room temperature.
  • Once ripe, keep your mangoes in the fridge to slow down the ripening process. Mangoes should keep for up to 5 days if refrigerated at the right time. 
  • If you want to keep your mango ready to eat for even longer, dice it into cubes and freeze it. It will still be fine to consume for up to 6 months. 

Need To Transport Your Mangoes?

If you are a farmer, packager or grocery store, you’ll need a transport company to get your mangoes where they need to go and deliver them in the condition they were sent.
