Imported Indian Mangos?

Anyone know if there are Indian or other grocery stores in the greater Boston area that sell fresh mangos imported from India? I think the season has started, and I would love to find a reliable source. TIA.
How do you all store the mangos? I just bought 3 boxes from Patel Brothers (I gave away two). They look slightly greenish, but I just cut into a damaged one and it seemed pretty juicy and tasted good. Now I'm not sure whether to leave the other 9 mangos on the counter or put them in the fridge?
Also, the boxes were sealed when I bought them. All of them had at least 1 mango with a lot of damage/black rotted spots on them, but in one of the boxes, almost half of the mangos have black spots on them. Do you just take your chances when you buy them, or do you open the boxes at the store and check them? It didn't look like they wanted people to open them, given the limited supplies.
On the other hand...given how much I'm paying for them...even one mango that's rotten is kind of a bummer!
