HONEY MANGOES ARRIVE IN JUNE
Discovered less than a century ago in southern Mexico, honey (or Altaufo) mangoes are smaller than the mangoes typically found in the supermarket. Sweet, delicious, and fragrant, they have a richer, spicier flavor than conventional mangoes, in addition to a much smaller pit. The flesh is also less stringy and fibrous. Vibrant yellow and oblong-shaped, honey mangoes begin to mature for harvest around late February, and are only available from late May to the end of June.
Mangoes generally take three to eight days to ripen at room temperature, though they will ripen faster if placed in an enclosed bowl or paper bag. The stem end should be slightly soft when pressed, similar to a peach or pear. Mangoes can be chilled before serving, but shouldn’t be stored in the refrigerator for more than a few days.
