New leader in mango comp

THE competition is starting to heat up in The Express’ Kensington Pride Mango Competition. A new entry by local farmer, Sam Gambino last week, is now in top spot.


This year’s competition started off with Weston Hilditch’s entry of a 1.135kg mango, improving from his mango entry last year. 

However, his reign was short lived as Sam’s whopper mango, weighing in at 1.244kg (pictured), knocked Weston off top spot. 

First place for the competition will be taking home $500, $300 to second place and $200 to third place courtesy of major sponsor Lindsay Rural. 

Now there is still plenty of time and plenty of mangos to be seen before the end of the competition in January 2022. 

Make sure you get in your monster mangos for a chance to win some truly juicy prizes.
