working closely with our growers we are able to offer four different varieties beginning in December and lasting until August. each mango has a unique flavor and texture so we encourage trying the different varieties at different stages of their ripeness.
We maintain constant communication with the farms to carefully plan harvest and pack dates to help ensure we meet market and customer demands of high quality and requested volume. Each mango is hand harvested into packing totes then transported to the packing shed where they are hot water treated and mechanically sorted by size. Mangoes are harvested before they are totally ripe. They will continue to ripen overtime as they make their way to the end customer.
The packing shed is equipped with a quality control team that focuses on insuring only the best quality of mangoes are packed to be shipped. The mangoes are packed into 9lb cartons and stored at 55℉. Each pallet holds 210-252 cartons depending on growing region and there are 22 pallets per truck load. The Mexican loads are shipped directly to our facility in McAllen, TX and then distributed to our individual customers across the country. The Peruvian loads are shipped via ocean freight to Penn Terminal in Philadelphia, PA.
