    This is not a geographically specific comment, but a name-related one. You might also try asking for Ataulfo, Haitian, or Indian mangoes....in different places, they are known by different names, so you might get a yes to one name and not another.

      Wow-- thank you SO much for that-- the CurryUp website has advertised Alphonso (actually, Alphanso) mangos, but when I went, the woman showed me Ataulfo ones, and had no idea what the Alphonso ones were. Oh well, at least I'll be back there on Monday and can get them then!

      CurryUp Foods in Maple Grove did have them-- I don't know if they still do or if they have run out.

        FWIW our local Whole Foods does carry them (Texas), but it usually isn't until later in the spring/early Summer

          You might also want to try Patel Grocery in NE.

            I've seen several types of mangoes at United Noodles - possibly even Alphonsos. And call the Wedge Co-op - their produce people are very resourceful.
