Name: R2E2 Mango
Country of Origin: Australia
The name sounds cute and really similar to the R2E2 bot from Star Wars. But the reality is slightly more scientific and less romantic than that! R2E2 actually means the row and position of the original tree from way back when it was being cultivated! Compared to the asian varieties, the R2E2 tends to be fleshy and slightly on the dense side without being fibrous. Its sweetness also tends to be more stable and predictable (less likely to be tart!). At its peak, its juice is just like syrup!
How to enjoy the full beauty of the R2E2 Mango:
Our personal favourite? Wait till it's slightly overripe, cut up the 2 sides and cube it!
THE AVO PROMISE
Avo & Co. is about helping our customers rediscover the joy of food. This means that we want our customers to have a ""woah"" moment when they open up their box, a ""mmm..."" moment when they put a tomato or a slice of avocado in their mouth. It's also about helping our customers be all excited and looking forward to cooking whether it may be with/for someone or themselves.
On our produce, we try to get them as close to ripeness as possible before harvesting or sending it to you, so that you can taste its proper flavor (but the box should last you for 5 days to a week at least!). We also make it a point to try and not get produce when the season is just starting or ending as its flavor and price is not the best.
On packaging, we try to use as little plastic packaging as possible. (Exceptions being berries, herbs and meat.) It's higher cost and higher effort but we just wanted to do what we can along the way. (If you have problems with storage, get in touch with us, we would love to share tips!. We would also like to stress that we are not 100% plastic free at the moment! We are always looking for alternatives, so yea, feel free to hit us up with suggestions.)
We hope that you enjoy our seasonal fresh produce and that it bring you joy to receive the delivery.
