Impact of storm on Harvests During This Australia Mango Season
“One severe storm this month, which saw the Darwin Airport record wind speeds of 137 kilometres per hour, swept across several mango orchards, blowing a lot of fruit off trees.

Speciality Honey Gold Mango Harvest Ongoing In The Northern Territory Of Australia
“The annual Honey Gold mango harvest is underway in the Northern Territory with the first fruit of Piñata Farms’ own variety, already arriving in stores.
Key account manager Rebecca Scurr said Piñata Farms expected a consistently strong season, following last year’s record season for Honey Golds and Australian mangoes generally.
“As mangoes can sometimes show some biennial tendencies, it‚s not often we would experience two bumper years in a row.
However, all the signs are there for another great season with excellent quality fruit in abundance due to good flowering and fruit set during winter, followed by an ideal, dry spring,” Ms Scurr said.
