Product of Peru. The picture shows 10 pcs so I'm assuming that's how many are in a case. Enjoy :D

dont get too excited. Last several times they had mangos on sale the mangos were all green, and very few people wanted to pick up a case.

It doesnt really ripen if it is picked. It can get sweeter if you wait, but not by much. If what you said is true, why do people spend so much time picking the non-green mangos at the supermarket? The ones less green have the greatest potential of being the sweetest. The green ones might wind up tasting sour regardless of how long you let it "ripen".

Really good price OP, however my advise to anyone who loves mangoes here is to try out the Alphonso mango (from India) which should be here around mid-April or May, or atleast available at those Asian stores. price might be a little high, but the taste is every bit god damn delicious. Also another option for a much cheaper price and taste about half as good as Alphonso, try out the Haden mango which are from Mexico. I found those to be surprisingly good as well :)

As an Asian, red mangoes are the worst mangoes that I’ve ever had. No aroma, not sweet.

Almost each south East Asian country has their own cultivar of daaaaamn good mango

Not quite true ... If it's fully green and hard as a rock sure. But if they're green and red, wait 7-10 days and leave em with your bananas and they do ripen. That's what we do with the Costco ones.

That said they are a poor excuse for a mango as a sweet flavourful fruit/dessert when compared to an Alphonso! But you can make a nice Thai mango salad with the Peruvian ones.

Don't speak for all of us. I find they have more aroma than the yellow ones. Yellow ones just taste like sugar.

Apple Mango breed is quite good. So long as it is semi-ripe off the vine.

Don't waste your hard earned money on these unless you are making a mango salad or using them semi ripe. Every time we have bought these mangoes, they were very very stringy and no flavour at all. In 2019 when there was no Covid, we used to cross the border weekly, go to Sam's Club and they had these humongous mangoes (I forget the name and came from the Americas) which were super sweet and fleshy. Have not seen them in our grocery stores here.

Someone mentioned about Asian mangoes, especially from the Indian subcontinent. Almost every variety is excellent.

And often rubbery in texture - they ship better without bruising as much.

There's a Keitt one that shows up at Loblaws sometimes (not to be confused with their Kent one) that's pretty decent too.

Ataulfos can be good (they often use this at the Asian bubble tea /smoothie joints) but again, try a ripe Alphonso and then decide which tastes better (assuming cost is taken out of the picture).
