Ataulfo mangoes come from Mexico, where they thrive in the warm, tropical climate. Along with the Manilita mango, it is a descendant of the Philippine mango cultivar introduced to Mexico from the Philippines before 1779 through the Manila-Acapulco galleon trade. It was crossed with other mango varieties, resulting in the Ataulfo. They are named after Ataulfo Morales Gordillo, a Mexican grower who first cultivated these mangoes in the late 20th century.

How to store

Ataulfo mangoes are ripened on the tree. This means that they are only picked when they are at their best and therefore do not need to ripen after. Store the mangoes at room temperature for a few days.

How to eat

Ataulfo mangoes are often eaten fresh, peeled and sliced or cubed. Due to the silky soft structure, they are also very suitable for making puree, smoothies or sorbet ice cream. Or add a tropical twist to savory dishes such as salads, salsas or chutneys. And of course you can also use them in exotic desserts!
