Yun Hai Selection Dried Fruit: Green Mango
Made from unripe baby Tu Mangoes 土芒果 (the original Taiwan mango), these are nature's sour gummy: chewy, bright, sweet with an electric tang, an old school Taiwanese treat.
We source our green mangoes from family farms in 玉井, who harvest their mango by hand. In order to get big, sweet mangoes at harvest time, the farmers must prune much of the developing fruit on the tree, so the tree directs its resources to the fruit still on the branches.
The baby mangoes that are cut from the tree when pruning are then used to make all manner of green mango snacks—candied, pickled, frozen, and of course, this sugared and salted dried version. As usual, we don't add any additives or artificial preservatives, and dry them naturally.
