Champagne mangoes in the Triangle

a

A friend of mine brought me a champagne mango from Charleston recently, and it was so fantastic I've been craving more. Some internet research let me know that they're also referred to as honey mangoes, manila mangoes, and Ataulfo mangoes. They're yellow in color, distinguishing from most of the red-gold ones you see on the market.

Does anyone know where I can find these in the general Triangle area?

    They've had them recently at Whole Foods in Raleigh and Durham.

      Also, try the local asian/indian stores in your area.

            UPDATE: I went to Weaver Street, and yep, they had the mangos. They were 75 cents each.

          Compare Foods ( wonderful large latino supermarket) on Avondale/Roxboro at 85 in Durham has a huge pile of them for .79 each (pretty ripe), also Costco in Durham has had them every week in a six-pack for $4.99 or $5.99.
