Ann’s Tips and Tricks
Tommy Atkins mangoes are the large green mangoes with a red blush. They are the most commonly sold mango.
Champagne mangoes are about 1/2 the size of a Tommy Atkins, and are a golden yellow color. These mangoes are super sweet and delicious. They start to appear in stores mid to late summer. If you find them, buy them.
