Big mangoes rolling in

IT was mangoes galore over the Christmas break, with several entries making their way to The Express and FNQ Growers chair Joe Moro for the annual KP mango competition.

One of those entries was young Sienna Colls and her nonno Alvise Brazzale of Dimbulah, who bought in a 1.05kg juicy KP.

The winning prize for the mango competition is $500, courtesy of Lindsay Transport and Lindsay Rural, second place is $300, and third place winner will receive $200.

All entries must be Kensington Pride variety only, be photographed on electronic scales clearly showing the weight and must be viewed by a member of The Express Newspaper team or Joe Moro.

The mango must not be tampered with in any way. The competition is open to all farmers and budding backyard growers in the region.

The competition closes Tuesday 31 January.

The leader board to date has Milan Maloberti on top with a 1.550kg mango, in second is Sophie and Tony Davey weighing in a 1.445kg and in third is Jett Prien with a 1.333kg mango.

The top ten also include Mark Keating (1.284kg), Marcus Caamano (1.262kg), Coleman family (1.198kg), Madina Williamson (1.060kg), Amy Simonato (1.047 kg), Sienna Colls and Nonno Alvise Brazzale (1.05kg).
