They are ripe-harvested and have a golden yellow, creamy-sweet pulp.
How to perform the Ripeness-check of a Mango
A ripe Mango can be detected by giving it a touch.
The Mango's surface will feel leathery, and if you give it a gentle pressure, the peel will give in.
The Mango Cultivation - an all-year long process
The Mango grows and ripens in the tropical climate of north-east Brazil all-year-round.
The Mango's peel color does allow to indicate, whether the fruit is ripe or not.
Mangos are available in the most beautiful colors, from green, yellow, rose, red to purple.
Only harvesters with years of experience can decide, whether the fruit is ripe or not, to make sure every fruit will be a taste experience.

GOOD TO KNOW – Exotic Fruit Knowledge
Question: What are the so-called FLIGHT GOODS?
Question: Did you know that the most fruits come by ship and that flight goods are true delis?
Answers: Those fruits who do come by ship will be in fact harvested in an unripe state. Due to the long shipping ways, they can after-ripe on the ship and will reach their consumers in a ripe state.
But flight goods are different and are the modern answer of nowadays.
This new transportation way is for truly ripe-harvested fruits!
Flight goods will be indeed completely harvested ripe.
That makes a huge taste impact.
Such fruits do taste surely much more awesome in the compartment to the shipped fruits, which can be found everywhere in local consumer stores.
That is why flight goods are so valuable, probably a bit more expensive and a true deli.
As you can imagine, there are more shipped goods then flight goods.
So they are quite a rarity and can be hard to find.
But the good news is, we got you covered with those treasures!
Happily, not only the Portuguese language connects the former colony of Brazil with Portugal.
Portugal traditionally has many trade links with Brazil, including more than 70 weekly flights.
Just for the football World Cup 2014, the Portuguese Airline TAP had 450 flights.
We use these opportunities of free airplane transport capacities for our sideloaded, freshly harvested exotic fruits.
