Melissa’s Australian Mango Program

Los Angeles, California – Melissa’s kicks off our fourth year of importing Australia’s unique varietal mangoes, providing consistent supply and quality throughout the winter months. Australian mangoes are prized for their creamy-smooth texture compared to more fibrous fruit produced in other growing regions and conditions.

Though the name of first variety of the season may sound like a science fiction, the only thing out of this world about the R2E2 is this variety’s head-turning sweet flavor. This early season mango is large, almost perfectly round, with an attractive orange skin tinged with red blush. The bright yellow interior fruit is extra-juicy though firm with a creamy smooth, peach-like texture. The perfect start to a winter-long program of deliciously unique mango varieties that will generate incremental sales when fresh fruit selection is so limited at this time of year.
