Bought two of these, definitely not ripe! Good price, just be prepared to have to wait for them to actually ripen!
Outside of Indian/Pakistan Mango season (April to June), the mangoes that ares old in the UK are predominantly 2 varities: Kent and Keitt. From many years of eating mangoes, the variety Kent is by far the better choice. Firm mangoes upon purchase will ripen well in 2/3 days when in a warm temperature (over 21 degrees) and if the mango is placed next to bananas.

The variety of the mango often is not quoted on the barcode sticker on the mango (where the mango is lose). Please look for the original box where the lose mango came from, and on the side of that box the variety will be noted. On prepacked mangoes, the variety is normally noted.

Our firm favourite outside of the Indian/Pakistan mangoes in the Giant Kent Mango (costs between £1.50 and £2.50 per mango).

Hope the above helps someone.

A "minute" in the microwave to "ripen" !
Isn't that "cooking" ?

No, it hardly gets warm at all and it doesn't work immediately, just speeds the rpening up a bit

A ripe Mango shouldn't cost less than £1.50 a piece.

I was at Tesco (Harrow) yesterday saw these first hand.
They were not ripe - rock hard - and were very small.
The best mangoes in the UK I have had were from a local green grocer (not a supermarket chain). I find that supermarket chains focus on selling unripe fruit, while local markets and green grocers have ripe fruit, available to eat immediately.

On a side note: I lived in India for 3 years and the mangoes over there are in a completely different league to anything in the UK. Some of the mangoes sold in the UK for £2 each, would be tossed (not fit for consumption). Beggars can't be chooses, though, so we need to accept the poor quality fruit in this country.
Processed junk food is something that the UK does very well (lots of it is available for a cheap price), but when it comes to fruit, UK is far behind (due to its weather).
UK mangos aren't mangos, they are firm like apples and taste like crap, Tesco should be fined for false advertisement
Really good price op
I like Mangos from local Asian shops only as they are taste different and 100 times better and ready to cook - yellow colour instead of green!

Haha, 100% agree with you
Not ripe at all
Lol, the picture of the honey mangoes in the HUKD email newsletter is 100% misleading. No comparison to the inedible junk you get in Tesco.
I have waited months for a mango related post so I could leave this piece of genius right here. You’re welcome.

They're 60p in sainburys

Why not?



It’s and exotic fruit, ones that are cheap as 69p are usually farmed products that are grown to quickly to be sold. The lack flavour, appearance or any sweetness (noticed are they are often quite acidic/sour).

if you have have Mango’s from Pakistan and India you’d know what they’d really taste like. Even those are usually 3 for £5. Try it from you local Asian grocery.

Here in Thailand we have green variety of mango as well as yellow, both very ripe and tasty.
Most supermarket mangoes are horrid! Buy from markets and local grocers instead. Green and yellow mangoes from Africa and South America are sweet. Yellow mangoes from Pakistan and India are sweet but somehow supermarkets sell green unripe sour mangoes at exorbitant prices but junk food is so cheap!

You haven’t tried our local supermarket version of Mango as taste is very different and it’s not original or the same as I have tried in Asia, Dominican Republic and abroad in general!

There are hundreds of varieties of mango in this world so how do you know they are not original?
