Australian consumer might witness shorter supply of mangoes

Bowen mangoes will not be abundant on Australian supermarket shelves this summer due to a warmer-than-average winter. However, there are alternatives. Last season, it was the pineapple industry that struggled through a mass natural flowering event that caused a major glut of the tropical fruit. But a mild, dry winter this year has been good news for growers.

There is great news for lychee lovers as well. The lychee industry enjoyed a record-breaking crop last year, with the popular Asian fruit flying off trees and supermarket shelves. While it is still early days, growers won't be picking the abundance of last season. But they are predicting about 80 per cent of an average year.
