Ahhh … Florida Mangoes …. There’s nothing that compares to the delicious tropical taste of of this unique fruit. Mangoes are one of the world’s most popular fruits. Although the mango originated in India, the “Tommy Atkins” variety of mango we are shipping nationwide was first cultivated right here in Florida. It’s a version of the Haden Mango, which originated in Coral Gables, Florida. The Tommy Atkins mango has since become one of the most important varieties of mango, and one of the most frequently consumed types of mango throughout the world. Mango trees thrive in tropical and subtropical climates.Similar to other Florida fruit, Mangoes are high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and a host of other vitamins and minerals. As a result, they are considered an excellent source of antioxidants, which help prevent heart disease and cancer. Several antioxidants found in Mangoes have been shown to inhibit prostate and skin cancer in laboratory tests. Mangoes are also high in prebiotics, which aid digestion.But the bottom line is their wonderfully sweet tropical taste. Whether you eat them as hand fruit or add them to a recipe, now’s the time to order mangoes … Summer’s most popular fruit.
