Australia’s largest grower of premium Kensington Pride mangoes, also known as the ‘Bowen Mango’


Manbulloo has led the way in Australian mango production since its establishment in 1982 and continues to do so today.
With six family-owned mango farms across Northern Australia, Manbulloo is the largest grower of Kensington Pride
mangoes in the country.



When Manbulloo Managing Director Marie Piccone is asked why out of hundreds of varieties of mangoes available, she chooses to grow Kensington Pride, she simply answers “because they’re the best”. 

Kensington Pride is the most popular variety of mango grown in Australia. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Bowen mango’ (the region of Queensland in which the variety was popularised), the variety actually originates from India. 

Kensington Pride mangoes have a uniquely fragrant and sweet flavour with soft, fibreless flesh. They have a yellow skin, often with a pink or red ‘blush’ colour that results from sun exposure. Whilst most consumers still prefer to eat Kensington Pride mangoes freshly sliced, they also make a great addition to smoothies, desserts or even summer salads.
