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?
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.
