Mangoes hit market shelves early due to strong flowering pre-season

The mango season has arrived two months earlier this time around. One of the season’s most popular fruits are here to enjoy early with the launch of mango season.
Due to a strong flowering pre-season, mango season is now officially underway with the popular fruit hitting supermarket shelves across the country.
National distribution levels are due to reach 200,000 trays in mid-late September, with Australians expected to indulge in close to 150 million mangoes over the coming months.
“After a challenging year for all, Australians can look forward to tasting the sunshine with the sweet tropical flavour of Australian Mangoes”, Brett Kelly, CEO of Australian Mangoes, said.
“Our mangoes are 100 per cent Australian produced by our growers who work hard to deliver high quality, delicious produce that Aussies enjoy year after year.”
The 2021 Brisbane Produce Market Mango Auction will take place today, online, raising money for children’s cancer charity Redkite.
The 2019 winning bid of $25,000 for the first tray of mangoes marked a great start to the season, and this year the Brisbane markets are determined to reach a milestone of $1 million raised for Queensland charities since 2002.
The first mango variety shoppers can expect to see on the shelves are the much-loved Kensington Pride.
From October, Calypso and R2E2 will become available closely followed by Honey Gold mangoes from November.
The Keitt, Palmer and Kent varieties will appear from January.
The vast majority of mangoes are being distributed from the Northern Territory, but from November, Queensland will be the major producer of the tropical fruit with further growers in Western Australia to support the rollout.
