Juicy and nutritious, mango is the most widely consumed fruit in the world.

 

We ship the majority of our mango by sea but also deal in air freight. Mangos leave our orchards and arrive in Europe 10 to 72 hours later - bursting with flavour and ready to eat.

 

Our experienced and passionate staff are custodians of all fruit that passes through our value chain. Extra care ensures you get high-quality fresh produce when you buy tropical fruit from Halls.

RIPENING

The mango will ripen at room temperature becoming sweeter and softer as the process evolves. 

 

The demand for ready-to-eat mango is growing. The Halls team takes great care to ensure that customers receive fruit at the required stage of ripeness. 

 

The Halls RIPE range of mango is ready to eat on the same day of purchase. Learn more about our RIPE range here.

TOMMY ATKINS

KENT

KEITT

halls mango

Yellow, orange and bright red, this variety is a favourite in northern Europe. Bred in Florida in 1922 and chosen by growers for its productivity, robustness when handled, and resistance to anthracnose.​ The flesh has a deep orange colour, and even though slightly fibrous, it is of good quality. 

Fruit colour is attractive, and the tasty  flesh is firm, ripening gradually. Bred in 1932 in Florida, the Kent bears comparatively large fruits, ranging from 440g to more than 1kg on young trees. Much appreciated by both the upstream and downstream ends of the sector, yields are medium but with a high proportion of export fruit. 

The flesh appears orange to deep yellow and is rich in flavour with a melting texture. Bred in 1939 in Florida, the Keitt has high, regular yields. The reddish colour appears before the fruit is ripe and can lead to problems of early picking. It is gaining importance as an end-of-season variety, prolonging the export season.
