Alphonso Mango Spongy Tissue Notice

Discover the True Essence of the "King of Fruits"

Welcome to the world of Alphonso Mangoes, renowned for their unparalleled taste and richness in essential nutrients. As you indulge in this celebrated fruit, it's important to acquaint yourself with a natural occurrence known as "Spongy Tissue."


Understanding Spongy Tissue

Occasionally, Alphonso Mangoes may exhibit a physiological phenomenon termed "Spongy Tissue," wherein the pulp undergoes internal breakdown. This condition manifests as unripe, acidic, pale yellow/white corky tissue with or without air pockets, often accompanied by an undesirable off-flavor. Notably, these manifestations occur within certain regions of the pulp adjacent to the stone (endocarp). The disorder remains imperceptible externally and is typically detected only upon slicing the fruit open.

Can You Consume Mangoes with Spongy Tissue?

While a mango afflicted with Spongy Tissue may still be deemed safe for consumption, it may exhibit a diminished flavor profile. Nevertheless, the remaining portion of the fruit remains perfectly edible and safe for consumption.

For patrons who choose to enjoy Alphonso Mangoes despite the presence of Spongy Tissue, A1Mangos regrettably assumes no financial responsibility for refunding or replacing the affected mangoes.
