Vancouver Mangoes

Has anyone seen Alphonso mangoes this year? I have seen Atulfo and Haydens. Have a craving for sweet mangoes.

      1. Don't know where the mangoes we get in Vancouver come from, but the mango crop in India has taken a big hit this year.

          Our Mangoes arrive first from Brazil then Ecuador/Peru then Mexico.

          Have occasionally seen some Pilipino and Taiwanese product but IME both are very expensive and quality marginal.

            I remember we used to be able to get super sweet Alphonso's at urban fare. Now all I see are marginal quality Atulfos.
