This is not a regular size, and only 0.1% (less than 10 in 1000) organically grown mangoes achieve this size and volume. This makes it a very rare and highly priced size and so we can only take pre-booked orders for this category. Once we have received your order, we will source it for you from our growing network of organic Hafoos farmers across Ratnagiri. Please note however that as we only source from organic farms, it is very much possible that it may take up to two week to confirm availability to you.
