Alphonso Mangos 2014

Don't wanna alarm anyone, but I just picked up a case of Alphonso mangos on the Gerrard East strip. It's on people.

  1. Awesome!! Because I bought one a couple of weeks ago and it tasted like it was out of season.

      Just ate two out of the case. Just ripening up, quite tasty. Picked up mine from BJ Supermarket on Gerrard. $25 for the case. Other places quoted me $29.

          Hi, how many mangoes were there in one box?

          1. re: SSelvam

            12 in a box
            They are $35 this year and currently available at Kohinoor Foods.

              I got a box of 12 last weekend for $30 at Om India Food Centre (centre st & dufferin), they said price was up this year due to excessive rain hurting the crop.

                Same price was quoted ($30) when I enquired at an Indian grocer near Don Mills & Sheppard. I didn't buy coz I was wondering is it still too early in the season. How was your box?
