12,000 pounds of Jamaican ‘Julie’ ‘East Indian’ mangoes shipped to US

Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach in Florida are among the first areas to receive Jamaican mangoes in the United States.

Twelve thousand pounds of ‘Julie’ and ‘East Indian’ mangoes were exported on Thursday.

My cousin in South Florida told me the first shipment went to NY. None in South Florida based on what she told me.

If you live in SF don’t you have mangoes. One of the best mangoes I had was from Florida...A big Keith something

Another "Brand-Jamaica" ripoff.

i think it's par for the course with all mangoes though...the importers markup adds 45% to the cost of a mango...indian mangoes are averaging $4.50/lb...that's probably attributable to higher freight costs...

A box of Haden mangoes, 9 count, from Mexico is around $8.00 and each mango weighs around a pound.

Bricktop June 23rd, 2019 04:44 PM

yeah but that's like comparing apples to oranges..the mangoes you get from latin america are crappy florida hybrids...that's why they're so cheap...+ freight costs are much lower cause they can truck them in instead of air freight...add to that economies of scale...
