What is so special about Ratnagiri Alphonso mangoes?
Mangoes are of different varieties and are named accordingly. The best variety - The Alphonso - comes from a area called Ratnagiri, situated  with in Konkan belt of the western India and which is known to produce the finest quality of the Alphonso variety. After having eaten these mangoes one can say that Gods have really blessed India with this special fruit. These mangoes being the best in quality, size and sweetness are exported to many countries and thus have become famous not only in India but also in other parts of the world. Consecrated with fertile soil, sun and humidity the variety of Alphonso, here in Ratnagiri, imparts a inimitable scent and has a distinct flavor.

How does the fruit mature and How to know whether the mangoes are ready to eat?
First of all, the raw mangoes are harvested from the tree. They are then laid on specially prepared hay stacks, where they mature the natural way. Eventually, as the fruit matures, the color of the mangoes turn from green to golden yellow and start imparting a unique and sweet aroma. This time is considered the best for packing these mouth-watering ripened mangoes.

You know mangoes are ready when they feel SOFT if you gently press it in your hand with fingers against your palm, when they smell sweet at the top, when they have rinkles on the skin. It is NOT neccessary that mangoes will turn completely yellow the way they show it on TV, they might be semi green since they are naturally riped.

Once we receive mangoes, does it require any special care in the home enviroment?
Yes it does. To withstand transportation time, multiple courier handling points and heat, we make sure we pack raw/semi riped mangoes so that they reach the party in the right condition, which means mangoes may still be raw and greenish while there are received, and thus you might want to read the following tips:

a. Do not cut the mangoes as soon as you receive them, please let them ripen, turn little yellowish and softer with a sweet smell. If you cut them before time, they will taste sour.

b. Do not refrigerate the mangoes, keep them within the grass at a room temperature

c. Do not keep them in an AC room

d. Once they are ripened, and ready to eat, you can put them in the fridge to increase the shelf life.

e. You can also put them into a fridge for two hours before cutting them

f. Wash the mangoes with warm water before cutting them or before putting them in fridge after they have ripened.

g. As soon as you receive the box, take out the all the mangoes and put them in open air for 30 mins and then repack them in order of their color, green ones at bottom and yellowish at top, repeat this process daily, these will help mangoes from turning black.

h. You can also try mangoes with Vanilla Ice cream, it tastes beautiful.

Can you tell us about the sizes of the mangoes?
Sizes of the mangoes depend upon the crops. We have three different sizes,

1) A -180-225* grams each fruit aprox.
2) A+ -220-270* grams each fruit aprx.
3) A++(Extra Large Fruit) would vary from 250 to 325 * grams per fruit

*Mangoes loose weight as and when they ripen

Each box of 12 mangoes would weigh 3.5kgs to 4kgs

How are the mangoes processed and packed?
The stage of ripened mangoes are determined by the time taken for transfer to the final destination of delivery. All mangoes are then thoroughly examined for any skin flaws. This examination is done prior to the mangoes being wrapped in a cushy foam net and are then placed in their subsequent compartments in such a way that the fruit are not in contact with each other. The exterior of the carton is made of strong 5 ply E-Flute. For further and enhanced protection of mangoes bubble sheets are placed above and below the mangoes. Ultimately, each carton is then properly strapped and sealed making a long distance travel worthwhile. We generally send RAW mangoes, so that they are semi-ripe by the time it reaches destination
