Champagne® mangos are widely available from February through July. If weather conditions are right, we may be able to get Champagne® mangos to your local stores a few weeks earlier, and pack into August. We let Mother Nature do its thing.

At this time, we do not sell Champagne® mangos direct to consumers. We have a lot of exciting things planned for Champagne® mangos, however, so please check back occasionally to see what’s new.
The dry spots in your mangos are known as spongy tissue. This is a common occurrence in mangos throughout the world. It is completely harmless. This occurs in some years when the weather conditions are just right, causing a group of cells in the flesh to collapse. It can be made worse by big swings in temperature. Spongy tissue can vary in size and it is usually honeycomb-shaped, making it easily identifiable. This is impossible to detect unless you cut the fruit, but you can cut around it.
No. Champagne® mangos are not genetically modified or genetically engineered in any way.
Not all. You can identify organically-grown Champagne® mangos by the packaging. If the package does not make an organic claim, then those mangos are not organically-grown. Rest assured, however, that our mangos are sustainably grown and cared for.

We do not sell trees, but you may find our Champagne® mangos at participating retailers.
