It was introduced in 1999, the first new mango variety in over 30 years, and it really shook up the Australian market.
Calypso® Mangoes are a specific mango variety scientifically known as the B74… but Calypso® Mango sounds so much better! Perfection Fresh owns the marketing rights, while the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries and Just Avocados Pty Ltd developed and own the variety itself. Perfection Fresh control and manage the growing and propagation process to ensure that all Calypso® Mangoes meet our criteria for the “Perfect Mango”.
The variety owners have spent 20 years developing the B74 variety, which is the “daughter” of a Kensington Pride and a Sensation. They’ve taken the best of both varieties and combined them into one – giving you the most visibly beautiful and delicious mango experience every time, for any occasion.
