The Instacart guide to Haden mangos

About Haden mangos

Haden mangos have a unique history in Florida, where Army officer Captain John Haden planted four dozen Mulgoba mango trees in Coconut Grove. One tree produced brilliant colored fruits with superior flavor. His wife Florence, who took care of the trees after her husband's death, reported the fruit's potential to the Florida State Horticultural Society. She also sent two specimens to the United States Department of Agriculture and another to Edward Simmonds of the Plant Introduction Station in Miami.

Simmonds took this mango variety and propagated it in south Florida, as did nursery owner George Cellon. From then on, the Haden mango became a commercial success and dominated the Florida market for the next quarter of a century. It was also introduced in Australia, Honduras, and Hawaii. Most of the mangos today that have been developed in Florida are descendants of the Haden mango. Analysis of the Haden mango reveals that the fruit is more than likely a cross between Mulgova and Turpentine mangos.

Its distinctive bright red with green and yellow hints makes it a beautiful fruit to look at. Haden mangos have a peachy aroma with a sweet and creamy taste. The mangos are also oval and round and are available from March until May. The Haden mangos are also grown in countries like Ecuador, Mexico, and Peru. Today, the Haden industry in Florida has been reduced greatly due to its susceptibility to fungus. Florida's bad weather also at times affected the production of Haden mangoes. 

If you can find Haden mangos in the store or local market, they are a treat to eat due to their sweet and nonfibrous flesh. When ripe, the mangos melt in your mouth and are a sweet fruit to enjoy. 

If you are looking for a bit of sour or tangy flavor, the Haden mango doesn't offer it. They are sweet and have no fibers in the flesh, so they are great to mash into baby food, as toppings for ice cream, cakes, yogurt, or as a part of a granola mix. These mangos are sweet, so they will accompany a sweet dessert or fruit very well. Mangos can also be enjoyed by adding some lime juice, chili powder, or a bit of salt, depending on one's preference. Haden mangos, though, are best eaten fresh.
