New mango takes lead

A MASSIVE mango weighing 1.546kg has taken top spot in The Express Newspaper’s Kensington Pride Mango Competition, with entries continuing to flow in.

Growers – be they commercial or residential – can enter their mangoes until 31 January. 

Milan Maloberti of Mareeba brought his 1.546kg mango (pictured) in this week, leading the table from Brianna Jones of Dimbulah who entered a 1.140kg mango also this week. Anthony Simonato of Mareeba threw his hat into the ring with a 1.128kg mango. 

If you have a mango tree and wish to enter your largest KP, bring it in to The Express office at 186 Byrnes Street to be weighed and tasted by Managing Director Carl Portella. 

All mangos must be of the Kensington Pride variety. First place in the competition will take home $500, with second place to receive $300 and third place $200, courtesy of major sponsors Lindsay Rural and FNQ Growers. 

With not many days to go, enter your big KP mango today.
