Alphonso mangos at Loblaws

This may be too late, but the Loblaws at Victoria Park and Gerrard (actually Musgrave St.) had boxes of 4 Alphonso mangos for $9.99 as of yesterday (June 24). The are signed as "Indian Mangos", but the box says Alphonso.

They were a touch on the overripe side, but still very tasty.

As an aside, the box says they are best within 7 days of being packed, but there is no indication of when they were packed! Not terribly useful :-)

    T&T, in addition to the Indian Mangos also has rarely seen 'Pakistani Lahor' mangos at 5 for $9.99 too!

      Just tried a Pakistani one. Very sweet and aromatic, yellow rather than orange flesh ( the latter refers to the Indian Keser) Huge 'chubby' stone though!!!
