As Corey Mintz of the Toronto Star put it:
Tasting an Ataulfo mango for the first time often elicits the response, "That's a mango? What is that crap I've been getting from the grocery store?"
The answer is Tommy Atkins, that green-and-red monstrosity polluting market shelves like off-season Christmas fruit cake. Owing to its durability, disease-resistance and long shelf life, the Tommy Atkins is the most common mango sold in regions like ours, where sturdiness during long-distance importation is a huge concern for retailers. Unfortunately, the Tommy Atkins is also tart and fibrous, containing a quagmire of stringy flesh determined to embed itself in our teeth.
Let's work together to make the Ataulfo the Number 1 selling mango and relegate the Tommy Atkins to history's unmarked grave of discarded lies.
Impulse buying fruit is better than a lot of other things I could be buying on impulse.
Still can't find the miniature mangos that look like baby Ataulfos here, though.
