Champagne mangos, and a sign that claimed they were bred to have a slim, small pit, we were intrigued.
Whole Foods was selling them for a dollar apiece—great by mango standards, but these were about half the size of a regular mango. Still, we thought, if the pit really was small, $1 was a good price.
As soon as we sliced into one, we fell in love: the pit was extremely slender, as promised, and the surrounding flesh contained very few annoying fibers. The silky flesh was the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness.
If you see Champagne mangos in your supermarket or produce store, be sure to try them. You will not be sorry.
