Don’t Panic, But There’s A Mango Shortage This Summer!

Mango shortage qld

We have some seriously shitty news: there's probably going to be a mango shortage this summer. And you know what that means? Mangoes will be darn expensive. Yes, we know, this massively sucks.

'But wwhhhhyyyy!!??!?!!?' we hear you cry through mango-shortage induced sobs. Well, the answer is a pretty simple one; simple, yet grim, and completely unavoidable. Our fave mango varieties, the Kensington Pride and the Bowen Mango crops are seriously under producing because of things like crazy storms and inconsistent weather patterns. Now it's just a waiting game to see which crops will flower. Come on mangoes, you got this, we're rooting for you!

But, it's not all bad news, other varieties like the Calypso are back in full swing, which means you can still top that pav off with the golden nectar come Christmas Day.

Keep calm and stick to Milton Mangoes, we say.
