When are mangos in season?
Detective Mango is here to solve another fruity mystery – when are mangos in season?
We get this question a lot. There are some assumptions that mangos are only available in the summertime, but we’re here to debunk this myth! Mangos are actually always in season here in the United States. We’re lucky to have access to many different varieties of mangos, and because they each have their own unique seasons, we can enjoy mangos all year long!
There’s always more to the story though. If you’re looking for a specific type of mango, then of course, there are different seasons. For example, if you’ve got a hankering for a yellow honey mango, then you’re going to have to wait it out until mid-February or March. It’s all based on which country the mangos are coming from, the climate during that season and so many other factors. Luckily, every time you go to the super market, you should be able to find one of these six popular varieties.
- Honey mangos have some availability from mid-February to mid-March, reach peak availability from mid-March to mid-July, and have some availability from mid-July to mid-August.
- Francis mangos have some availability during April, reach peak availability from May to July, and have some availability in August.
