The majority of mango is shipped by sea, but Halls also has a specialist team dealing specifically in air freight mango. This fruit is ripened on the tree and leaves its sub-tropical orchard carefully packed to arrive in Europe just 24 hours later, bursting with flavour and ready to eat.
With its large flat seed lying in the centre of the fruit, the mango is packed full of nutritional benefits with over 20 vitamins and minerals. It is a sweet treat with no cholesterol and very low calorific value.
Today, there are more than a thousand different varieties of mango around the world. A great many of the commercial varieties grown today were bred in Florida at the beginning of the twentieth century.
