Mango - Mangue

Mangues (mangos) are quite popular and readily available, primarily the Kent variety from Brazil. In the fancier fruit stands you can often choose between the mangue bateau (picked green and ripened on the journey) and the pricier and usually better mangue avion (picked ripe and flown into France).
