Japan Miyazaki Mango cultivated in Miyazaki Prefecture are harvested when they are fully ripe, after naturally falling from their trees. This cultivation method gives the fruit a rich sweetness and aroma unique to mangoes from the region.
Miyazaki mangoes are prized for being extra sweet and tasty, with tight quality control to ensure a 15% sugar content and a minimum weight of 330 grams, as well as a striking deep red colour. They have very strict growing conditions to meet these criteria.
Each individual mango is placed in a small net when they are small fruits, suspended from a wire that attaches them to the top of the greenhouse. Many other budding fruits are removed from the plant, to ensure those that do grow receive the most nutrients.
When the mango is fully ripe and at its sweetest, it falls from the plant naturally, landing in the net. Suspending the mangoes like this has another advantage – maximum sunlight hits the skin of the mango, giving them their distinctive uniform red colour.
