Mangos are everywhere this time of year because June is the peak of the spring and summer season when mangos are most abundant in the stores. Next time you’re picking up your groceries see how many different varieties you can find! Some of the most popular varieties this time of year are the Ataulfo, Haden and Kent mangos.

Another fact about June--the temperature is going to rise! Don’t let the heat slow down your summer; keep cool with our Tropical Mango Sorbet and many other refreshing mango concoctions. Mangos are the perfect summer food star because they are an excellent source of Vitamins C and A, and contain antioxidant nutrients with lots of health benefits.
National Mango Month is the perfect occasion to try new varieties and experiment with new recipes. Using mango is an easy way to modernize a traditional dish, adding bold flavor, color and texture. Mango’s versatile flavor is also a perfect complement for different global cuisine, from Thai and Indian to Latin or Caribbean flavors. To top it off, mangos can be used at all meal times; a kitchen chameleon if you will.
