We've been asked lots of questions about this preserve, so I thought I'd answer some of the most popular questions below. If you do have another question please don't hesitate to drop up an email.
Q/ How quickly will it sell out?
I wish I could answer this question easily! There is no way to know for sure, however we have made roughly the same number of jars as last year, which sold out in two days. Our online business has grown over the last year so it's likely to sell out quicker than this. Why haven't we made more? It's such a labour intensive product to make (hand prepping every single mango) we've simply made as much as we physically can!
Q/ Will you be making more stock?
If we sell out quickly and there is demand for more we are hopeful that we will be able to make another batch. There are a few weeks left of the Alphonso season however I had a message from our mango supplier this morning letting me know that it is getting more difficult to source them so there is no guarantee we will be able to get more. If we can, we will.
Q/ When will my order be shipped?
Due to the bank holiday orders will be shipped on Tuesday. We will have all your orders packed and ready to go, however DHL do sometimes refuse to take everything if we have a lot (very frustrating!). We've let them know we're likely to have a lot of parcels but there is a chance that it may take a few days for them to collect them all. You'll get a tracking link from DHL when we pack your order, so it might take a few days to start showing movement.
Q/ What makes the Alphonso Mango so special?
Excellent question! The Alphonso Mango is rightfully known as the "King of Mangoes". Grown in India, they are only available for a short 6 week season each year.
They are beautifully sweet and aromatic, velvety smooth, with the fullest flavour of all the mango varieties. Vibrant orange in colour and much juicier too. Imagine a cross between a peach, nectarine, apricot and melon with notes of honey and citrus, but even better!
