MANGO VARIETIES

Tommy Atkins Mangos

Tommy Atkins mangos are the most widely available variety in the U.S. These mangos are medium to large and oval in shape. A dark red blush often covers much of the fruit with green and orange-yellow accents. The flesh is firm and there are fibers throughout. This variety may not provide any visual cues of ripeness, so it’s important to give it a gentle squeeze to determine whether it’s ripe and ready to eat. The delicious flavor is tart with sweet notes.

Ataulfo or Honey Mangos
