  • Mango


The mango has more than a hundred varieties. That's why they come in many shapes and colours. The mango has a leather-like non edible skin, which can be orange, red or green, depending on the variety. The shape of the fruit can differ as well from round to long or oval. The flesh of the mango is juicy and has a yellow to orange colour. The mango is a stone fruit and has a long inedible stone in the middle. Nature's Pride has selected its growers on the basis of quality, cost efficiency, shelf life, sustainable trade and social responsibility. Together with our dedicated growers we strive to exchange knowledge, so that we are able to supply mangos of consistent quality all year round.

Growing and harvesting

Within three to five months after sowing the seeds, the seeds germinate and they grow into young mango plants. After four to six years young mango trees are ready to be harvested. More mature mango trees are pruned at the start of each season and the most important values of the fruit is measured. According to these values, growers decide if they can start a new season so that all the mangos that will be harvested will be good and full of flavour. Flowers grow on the trees within six weeks and they develop into fruit within three months. The growers look for specific predetermined measures and the colour of the mango pulp to determine if the mangos are ready to be harvested. Our growers pick the mangos two weeks later than average. The mangos need to meet the strict requirements set by Nature's Pride, before they can be harvested. These measure have the advantage that the sugar content is higher and the mangos taste sweeter.
The journey of our mangos
Mangos are picked by hand. Once they arrive at the pack house they are thoroughly cleaned. Than they are quality checked and the pack house employees sort and pack the mangos according to the different sizes. After the mangos are packed, they are cooled back to 10 C ͦ to stop the ripening process.
The ripening of our mangos

When the fruit arrives at Nature´s Pride they get a quality check. Then the ripening supervisors determine the ripening process for every pallet and adjust the humidity and the temperature accordingly. This way the climate of the country of origin is copied. All the mangos go through a specific selection process so only the best products receive an EAT ME sticker. You can find more information about the ripening process here.
