Pick of the Week

Mangoes

This week’s hero is the luscious Kensington Pride Mango from the Northern Territory. A medium-sized yellow to orange fruit tinged with a pink blush, the kensington pride mango has a sweet and tangy flavour with rich, juicy and succulent flesh. The tropical aroma is a good indication but be sure to look for firm ripe fruit that gives slightly to the touch.
