The Miyazaki mango is a type of “Irwin” mangoes known for their unique ruby red colour. Different from the yellow “pelican mango” that is widely grown in Southeast Asia, the Miyazaki mangoes have the second largest production in Japan after Okinawa. The mangoes are sweet and grow up to a size similar to other mango varieties. It is their rarity that makes them so costly,” he tells The Better India. Interestingly, the Miyazaki mango, grown on the Kyushu island of Japan, comes from the Irwin mangoes cultivated in Florida, USA. These mangoes must be over 350g in weight, have a 15% or higher sugar content, and be perfectly colored and shaped. This name was chosen because Miyazaki Prefecture is known for its sunshine, combined with the fact that the mangoes are flaming red and their shape looks like dinosaur eggs.
