Buy mangoes now, since no hot water treatment
The organic Kent mangoes available in some stores now were left on the tree longer and NOT submerged in hot water before reaching stores, as reported by Four Seasons Produce, in the Washington, DC area. The hot water is used to kill fruit flies to prevent them from crossing the American-Mexico border. These mangoes come from Baja and the Los Mochis region. Because they are not submerged in hot water, they came be left on the trees longer. So this is the best time to purchase organic Kent mangoes.
