Farmer’s gi­ant mango find

Ellenbrook Advocate - - FRONT PAGE -

A SWAN Val­ley hobby farmer had an ex­cit­ing dis­cov­ery last week when he found a gi­ant mango on one of his trees.

Mon Comito said the gi­ant mango is the big­gest ever found on the prop­erty, weigh­ing in at 1.750kg.

The r2e2 mango is just un­der half the size of the record for the world’s big­gest mango, found in the Philip­pines in 2009 weigh­ing in at 3.435kg.

Mr Comito said he had picked a num­ber of large man­goes since grow­ing them on his farm, but this was by far the big­gest.

“Ev­ery year dur­ing mango sea­son I get sur­prised by how big the man­goes get,” he said. “It’s ex­cit­ing find­ing them.” Mr Comito sells his man­goes by the box from his farm, as well as other fruits, veg­eta­bles and nuts.

To buy his man­goes, visit 125 Hen­ley Street, Hen­ley Brook.
