The Honey Mango variety is prized for its wonderfully creamy texture and is considered the "champagne" of all mangos.
The mango, a native of India and cultivated in Asia for over four thousand years, is grown around the world, including areas of Mexico, California and Florida.
The Honey Mango is small, delicately shaped, with skin that ripens to a golden yellow. Sometimes referred to as "champagne" mango, its flesh is velvety smooth with almost no fibrous texture and with a wafer-thin pit. An important fruit for many tropical countries, the mango contains enzymes useful for tenderizing meats that also acts as a digestive aid.
Mango may be added to salads or used in vegetable or poultry dishes.
Melissa’s Mangos are hand selected for excellent quality. Choose fruit that are firm, have unblemished skin and a fresh scent.
Since Honey Mangos are usually sold firm, leave at room temperature for several days to soften until they yield to gentle pressure and the skin wrinkles. Once ripe, refrigerate for up to a week.
Honey mangos are also known as Ataulfo Mangos.
