    You money will not be wasted buying Doug’s mangos. They are the best and the quality is amazing!! As per customer service, Doug treats you with such kindness that it stays with you forever. He treats you as a friend and not a customer. The standard of excellence that the Mango Factory gives to their fruit and customers is hard for any company to beat. I am a Mango Factory customer for life.

    Your Amazing Doug!!

    When I first ordered a box of mangos from you in May, everyone thought I was crazy. How can I spend 4 – 5 dollars for a mango when I could get them and any grocery store for a dollar or so? It made me begin to wonder about my sanity….

    Then the box of mangos arrived….

    I have to say that your mangos were by far the BEST MANGOS I have ever tasted….Every bite was ecstasy! I could not believe how wonderful these fruit tasted…

    Mangos have long been my favorite fruit. As a child I was introduced to mangos by my grandfather, who had several mango trees in his yard in Hollywood Fl. I was eating mangos in Ohio, long before people new what they were…

    Thank you for making such a great product…Keep it up….I am thinking of moving to Florida (I’d be a snow bird) and now may have to think of moving near the Mango Factory! 🙂

    Last night, I had my first mango out of the bunch I received from you last week. It was amazing. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven.
    THANK YOU.

    I live not far from you and last year has the dubious pleasure of Bokeelia in late July. Hot, rainy, humid and buggy; this year I’ll “come home” in November after foliage season in VT. BUT bought several boxes from you to ship up north and people were almost weeping with pleasure. My son, who grew up in the Caribbean, said these were the best mangoes he had ever eaten. So this year, while enjoying the summer nights in the 50’s, I’m mail ordering. Many thanks for your organic status, I thought I was the only person on PI who cared.

    Last year we stopped at the farm because of a roadside sign and boy were we surprised by these mangos! This year we won’t be going to Florida so I had to order them through the mail. I hope they taste the same! They were like delicious sweet candy with a slight piney flavor next to the skin. My absolute favorite are Kent’s! I hope you guys get my email about the order I just placed 😉

  7. David Steinman September 5, 2012 at 12:12 pm #

    Wow, fast and efficient service. I received my mangoes before the labor day weekend and check them for ripeness daily … we’ve consumed 4 so far, each better than the last. I’m finally enjoying mangoes I remember from my childhood rather then the baseball sized imports we typically get here in the northeast. Thank you Mango Factory – I’ll be looking forward to ordering next season!

  8. CJ August 10, 2012 at 1:35 pm #

    Just ordered my third case of mangoes this year & can’t wait to receive them. It’s not summer without your mangoes, they are absolutely the best I’ve ever had! Too bad I can’t grow them in Pittsburgh. What would I do without you?!

    Please let me know when the ripe mangos will be ready to ship.
    My wife and I miss a really good mango from so Florida, we grew up there.

  11. Dennis Brown September 13, 2011 at 8:55 pm #

    I moved to Bokeelia in the early spring of ’10, and it’s been such a delight to live, enjoy, and get to know the wonders of living in a sub-tropical island on the SW coast of Florida. I missed most of last years mango harvest, as I took an extended trip (snowbird type) to NNY. Upon returning in early Sept. last year, I found that there were so few places to get a good locally grown mango. Then, after driving around, asking some locals, I came upon The Mango Factory (TMF)!!! They gave me samples, seconds to take home, as well as buy a batch, but this year I did much better, but again, the season for almost all other growers out here on PI is over….. except for TMF! They have such a warm and helpful customer attitude, and that alone is rare… You can’t go wrong with TMF!!

    We lived in Fort Myers and always got our mangoes from none other than Jack. So glad that Doug is still keeping the farm going. You guys have the best mangoes, I have ever had and I am from India, so I aught to know mangoes. I am so glade that you have this website. Not glad that every one is finding out about you all. (that means less for me.) Thanks for all you do and keep the farm going. We sure do appricate all the hard work you put in to it. “BEST mangoes you will ever eat.”

    Cynthia.

    Have been a customer of your family for many years. I just finished dehydrating the last of the Valencia Prides that we purchased a couple of weeks ago. They are absolutely delicious. I have an Excalibur Dehydrator, set it to 125 degrees and about 12 hours later they are done. I slice as much of the mango as I can and the rest I put in a bowl to eat later. The thinner the slices are the faster they will dry. Nothing to add, just take them off and store them in an airtight container.

  16. Jose Villanueva July 5, 2011 at 11:33 pm #

    Mangoes have been great so far. Sure beats the imported mangoes by a long shot.

    They bring back memories of growing up in Boca. Planting a mango tree was always one of the 1st things we did whenever we bought a new house. When we lived in an apartment, we would buy the rights to a tree from a non-lover. The summers were spent with the aroma of grocery bags full of mangoes ripening in the house. We would also ship boxes of mangoes to my grandma in Georgia in a similar fashion that you ship these. Sweet, sweet memories.

    Thanks for providing this service. I wish I had discovered you years earlier.

    We had the opportunity to meet your father who taught us the proper way to peel a mango. Our annual trip to south Florida always includes a trip to the Mango Factory.
    What a labor of love to plant all those trees on the numerous acres over the years.
    We wish you continued success, as this represents “Old Florida”.
    Your mangoes are far superior to any purchased in a supermarket!

  18. Grace & Joe Williams August 13, 2010 at 8:27 pm #

    Doug, Thank you for getting me to buy a few Valencia Prides when we were getting the Kents. We just got home & chilled the ripe one & had it for dessert tonight. It was great! Joe & I both grew up in Fort Myers eating mangoes from our parents’ trees, but none were as good as the Valencia Prides. Now living in Seminole, FL we will try the shipping next time, but glad we went to the Mango Factory today & got to talk with you.

  19. Ray of New York August 12, 2010 at 2:59 pm #

    We grew mangoes in the Philippines but we don’t have Valencia mangoes. My family love it and so as myco-workers.. There are so many different kind of mangoes here in NY and we can’t find it either. Your mangoes are so sweet and feels like just melting in your mouth.
    The best part about the Mango factory is that you have the best mangoes and the best employee. Talking about costumer service, CLAUDIA has the work ethics of an employee that all employers want to have. She greet every costumer with a smile and a warm welcome and assists costumer in all their needs. I go to Florida every year during mango season. Two weeks ago I was there and went to Mango Factory and met many mango buyers asking Claudia different questions and I noticed that everyone’s been helped and satisfied. I would like to complement your business for having the best mangoes and CLAUDIA for giving us the best service. Doug, thank you so much for running a perfect business that benefit all of us.

      Ray, I just read your comments again and it did my heart good…Doug

  20. Rich Lang August 8, 2010 at 8:39 am #

    My whole family loves mangos and we’ve stopped buying them in the US because the are usually so bad. I had heard about Florida mangos, but it took me a long time to find a vendor who would ship to me. I was thrilled when I found Doug’s site and read all the comments, but expectation can breed disappointment and I had high expectations as I anticipated the shipment’s arrival. A couple of days after it arrived, when the first piece of fruit was ripe to the touch, we all gathered around and I sliced one open and passed it around the table. The silence was… delicious. We were ecstatic. The huge fruit had a consistent, velvety texture and was packed with flavor, right down to a full sweet finish. We’re hooked!

  21. Jeff July 23, 2010 at 1:01 am #

    I have traveled the entire tropical globe from Asia to Australia to South America tasting the best mangos the regions have to offer and their are simply none better than the mangoes from the Mango Factory. These mangos are so big, juicy and sweet, they are like none I have every tasted.

    Doug is a scholar, a gentleman and simply a master at his craft. Thank you, Doug.

    All My Best,
    Jeff

  22. Doug June 17, 2010 at 1:34 pm #

    The 2010 mango season will open three weeks later this season due to weather conditions. We survived the January cold spell as the bloom didn’t begin until early February (two months latter than the early December bloom in 2009). A tremendous 2nd bloom. began in mid February and then we had three weekend rains three weeks in a row that washed the blooms of pollen and cut the bloom in half. Our Valencia Pride and especilly Kents look promishing but the Keits may be not a plentifuly as last year. We still should have plenty of mangoes but time will tell if we have as many as last year. We still have to worry about potential high winds, but so are the trials of raising tropical fruits…Doug

    We took all the mangos we could carry on the plane last time, we were down in Bokeelia and they were great! Why not fill your suitcases with the wonderful Mangoes you can get at the Mango Factory. The airlines are charging you for the bags anyway,and the fruit is really the best we have ever tasted !
    I promised all my friends up North ( Rhode Island ) the best mangoes from Pine
    Island……….and of course that’s the ones we got from the Mango Factory.
    Thanks Again

    Good old fashioned service, wonderful fruit, fantastic quality and good people to work with. That’s all a body can ask for. Conjures up images of my childhood on the Islands. I developed a whole lot of friends this summer, when they found out I knew a great source for mangoes. Yup … all the way to VA and NY.
    Keep up the good work.

    I am so delighted to have found this particular website. After reviewing some 6 or 7 sites, I jumped at the opportunity to patronize a business so close to Ft. Myers where my parents grew up, and where I grew up eating delicious mangos straight from the tree! While my parents now reside in Daytona Beach, my husband and I reside in Georgia. It is my husband who is even more a ‘mango fanatic’ than we are, but not just any mango; they MUST be Florida mangoes! He is from Africa, so he knows about mangoes, and insists that the mangoes from Florida are like those from his home, and far superior to mangoes from other places. Over the years, my Mom has sent Florida mangoes to him that she had a friend forward from Ft. Myers. My husband insists he can tell from the ‘smell’ , even prior to tasting, whether the mango is from Florida or not. (I learned that when I tried to ‘appease’ him with some I had purchased from the store from one of the Latin American countries.)Now that my Mother and the person who used to send them to her, are both faced with health challenges, she has asked that I send my husband some mangoes on her behalf. (Please add my name to your mailing list.) I am delighted to have found The Mango Factory, and look forward to what I know will be ‘real’ mangoes, sweet and delicious!
