Red king is the name given to a yellow mango with a slight red blush that has recently appeared in UK supermarkets from Pakistan. As the fruit ripens, the yellow becomes deeper. The fruit has a slightly irregular shape. The flesh is quite firm, has some fibre and is sweet without being particularly flavoursome.
Ripening: The fruit is ready to eat when the peel colour has become yellow, but also when the softness of the flesh has become obvious.
Grown in: Pakistan
Harvest & Availability: Harvest is probably in mid to late July.
Early August: from Pakistan
