Mango Picking

Quantites

Harvest season can vary with weather conditions but generally, it is expected that produce will be available from mid to late September.

The minimum shipping quantity is one pallet.

 

Packing

The packaging for bulk orders, initially of Kensington pride variety, would likely be in returnable pack bins.

Pallets for domestic trucking are approx. 2 meters high and broken down in size to suit export requirement by land or sea.

The fruit is traditionally packaged in trays to approximately 7kg in weight.

They are categorized by the number of fruit that fit into the tray, ie 10 pieces would be around 700 grams. The trays are contained in two-piece cardboard boxes of different strengths depending on the destination. Stronger condensation resistant boxes are used for the export market.
