Frieda’s says ‘G’day’ to Australian Mangoes

Two popular mango varieties from Down Under are now available from Frieda’s Specialty Produce

LOS ALAMITOS, CA (December 2016) — Kensington Pride and R2E2 Australian mango varieties are available now from Frieda’s Specialty Produce in good supply.

These popular Australian varieties are sweeter, juicier, and more aromatic than most mangoes American shoppers are used to. The texture is silky with no stringiness, and they also have a great shelf life with beautiful blush on the skin. The Kensington Pride mango is medium size and oval in shape with a beautiful pink-red blush. The R2E2 is more round and a bit larger with a gorgeous, deep orange blush, and a high flesh-to-seed ratio.

“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.”

The Australian mango growers are excited to increase the volume of their imports to the U.S. this season, so Americans can experience the silky, sweet flavor the Aussies have been raving about.

“There are only a few importers of Australian mangoes and the demand for these varieties is high. It is best to pre-book now for the first of the year,” added Jackson.

Frieda’s will have volume of Australian mango varieties for ads starting January 2, 2017, through the end of March. Call your Frieda’s account manager today, mate.
