(SPOT.ph) Pinoys abroad, do you miss snacking on sweet, sweet carabao mangoes? If you're in Australia, you're in luck: The Philippine and Australian governments partnered to bring these sweet mangoes from Manila to the land down under.
The Philippines' national fruit is known for its sweetness, and for the longest time, the only Philippine mango that Australians could get access to year-round were dried mangoes, the Philippine Embassy in Canberra said in a press release.
By exporting Philippines' beloved fruit with the help of logistics provider FastboxPh and 1Export, Filipinos and Australians alike now have access to these mangoes throughout the year. To compare, Australia can only produce mangoes from September to April.
“It is now time for Aussies to enjoy our much beloved fruit in the Philippines,” Philippine Ambassador to Australia Ma. Hellen De La Vega said in a statement.
