Haven't seen them this year in the US yet but hear they are selling at about $36/dozen.

In previous years I have bought them for as high as $120/dozen.

Most of the country is under a foot of snow. But it would appear that the first Indian mangoes are here already! March 27th a whole fortnight earlier than last year. I bought a box of Alphonso and Badami, each £12 per dozen. Now we play the ripening game...

I saw Alphonsos in the supermarket last week, cost was $1 each. They didn't look great, so I passed. Usually they will come down to 2/$1.00 for one week of the season.

I believe Atauolfo are different from the Indian Alphonso variety.

 

Where are people buying Indian Alphonso mangoes from in the US? Has anyone seen them yet in 2013?

Got a box of 12 Alphonso mangoes earlier this week - boy, are they disappointing! Still has that heady smell, but the taste is nothing like what it should be. Like Prawncrackers upthread, these are Kaybee - so I'll be interested to see what his experience is like.

At the moment i can only buy the ones imported by Kaybee. Out of the dozen or so Alphonso I've tried so far, only one was any good. The others have not travelled well at all, spoilt and fermented near the stone giving an unpleasant sourness.

All of the Badami have been very poor.
