Kent Mangos

Kent mangos have an almost completely smooth flesh with very little fibers.  This means you won’t be getting stringy pieces between your teeth when you bite into that delicious mango. Kent’s are not covered in the typical red blush we associate with a ripe mango. The outside skin is mostly green and yellow with a little red blush- but don’t let the color throw you off. The sweet flavor and smooth flesh of the Kent mango makes them worth seeking out.  Kent mangos will have a yellow undertone with speckled dots as they are ripening. The real test is to gently squeeze the mango. You want the mango to feel soft to the touch.  Slight wrinkling of the skin is also a good thing and nothing to be worried about. This is another sign of ripeness.  Kent mangos are coming out of Mexico until the end of August or beginning of September when the California Kent mangos will start.

The Kent mango is one of Earl’s employees favorite mangos because it is less fibrous compared to the Tommy Atkin variety.  Try pairing the mango with California avocados. Click here for some delicious recipes from the California Avocado commission.
