Today we have just taken delivery of some fantastic air freight Tree Ripened mangoes ( these have been left on the tree and only picked when ripe this ensures that they are in prime condition and ripened in their natural surroundings) unlike many of the supermarkets mangoes which are picked months before and then ripened in cold stores they never have any flavour and are usually fiberous.
The Variety is called MAYA a small, round mango with gorgeous deep yellow, fibreless, smooth flesh. The flavour and sweetness are exceptional.
Maya is quite easy to monitor for ripeness as the fruit becomes quite soft and tender when mature.
The Maya variety was naturally discovered in an Israeli orchard. First arrivals in Europe commenced in about 2002, although the variety had been common on local markets for several years.
