The first KP is in!

THE Express Newspaper’s Kensington Pride Mango Competition has been a yearly tradition, with mango growers bringing in their biggest specimens yet.


The Express Newspaper’s Cadet Journalist Ellie Fink with the first mangoes for the annual KP Mango Competition.

Last week, the first entrant Weston Hilditch bought in a 1.135kg KP, improving from his last year’s entry of 1.058kg. 

Weston has been known to bring in the first mango of the competition, setting his place on the leaderboard. 

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

All mangoes must be of the Kensington Pride variety and to enter you must have a photo of it on digital scales showing the weight.
