It’s on again, The Express Newspaper’s KP (Kensington Pride) Mango competition

Now in its sixth year the KP Mango competition invites all farmers from professional or backyarders to drop in their biggest and heaviest KP Mango for the chance to win $500 dollars.

Last year’s winners Sienna and Liam Avolio from Mareeba won with a 1.662kg monster.

Editor of the Express Newspaper Carl Portella said mango season was one of his favourite times of the year.  “It doesn’t matter if you’re famer with hundreds of trees or you only have one tree in your backyard this competition is open to everyone,” he said.

“Last year Sienna and Liam were just a couple of kids who happen to have a monster mango grow on their parents farm.

 “The best part of the competition is that I get to eat the competition!

“We also want to so a big thankyou to Lindsay Transport, Lindsay Rural and FNQ growers for their continued support."

The rules are simple.  The mango must be Kensington Pride variety only, Mango must be photographed on electronic scales clearly showing the weight. The Mango must be viewed by a member of The Express Newspaper team or Joe Moro from FNQ Growers. The mango must not be tampered with in any way. The competition is open to all farmers and budding farmers in the region. 

Prizes: 1st place $500 - 2nd place $300 - 3rd place $200. The competition closes on Sunday January 31st, 2021.
