ABOUT KENT MANGOES

Requiring warm dry weather for quality fruit, mangoes are not well suited for production in our home in the Pacific Northwest. Happily, they are excellent when imported from South America, Mexico and other tropical areas. Mangoes are naturally sweet and flavorful, while remaining low in calories and high in fiber. This makes them excellent for use in many foods, like low-fat desserts, beverages, in breads and muffins, or alongside sweet white rice. The fruit can vary slightly in appearance, ranging from 2 to 10 inches in length and weigh as much as 4 pounds a piece. The smooth flexible skin will turn from green to red as they ripen. Buried deep within the sweet juicy fruit is a large flat pit, which can be firmly attached to the pulp. Most commonly, mangoes are cut away from the pit and then peeled before their use.

KENT MANGO TASTE & RIPENESS

Sweet, and bursting with flavor, the mango is a favorite of many. With a smooth to slightly fibrous texture, the fruit also is luxuriously juicy. Your mango will soften to the touch as it ripens, and turn from green to having red areas on the skin. They should be kept at room temperature until ripe, and then consumed quickly as they do not last long once they hit their peak.
