Where to buy Indian mangoes? (i.e. mangos)

Supposedly the first imports of mangoes from india arrived last week. The dude at Russo's said he'd never heard of any such thing. Who's definitely selling mangoes from India?

  1. I read that it's going to be awhile before they're available in retail stores. I believe the first shipments are going to conventions, etc. You should call Patel Bros. on Moody St. in Waltham. They're part of a national chain of Indian supermarkets.

      In particular you want to be sure you are getting the alphonso variety of mango - see earlier thread on this.

        If the articles are to be believed, especially Madhur Jaffrey's pieces in the NYTimes about a year ago, there are other great varieties, along with the famous alphonso.
