Mangos around Philadelphia

borntolovefood | May 21, 201503:03 PM

Does anyone know where I need to go to buy good mangos around the greater Philadelphia area, say, within a 100-mile radius?

I bit into an Alphonso today. The fragrance knocked me over. It seemed to have dropped me in a mango forest. I wanted to kiss some dirt, to sing, to cry, and most of all, to start eating mango every day. Hence the urgent question: where do I go to find good mangos, if not Alphonso, then some other cultivars that are also good? If you know, please would you let me know?

On Rt 309 near Montgomeryville there is an Indian grocery store (Patel’s) that carries very good produce. But I have not been moved by visual examination to buy their mangos. Perhaps someone knows a better Indian or Mexican place that tries to stock good mangos. I am willing to drive a bit to get there.
