Common  Questions

Where are the mangoes from?

The mangoes come from the Bowen Mango Farm in Queensland. They are premium mangoes. The box includes mangoes at various stages of ripeness – which means you can enjoy them slowly.

Why are the boxes only 4.5kg?

Last year, we sold 7kg boxes. Unfortunately due to a warmer winter there was an unprecedented crop failure. This is expected to result in 60-70% fewer mangoes on the market. The farm wanted to ensure all fundraisers could proceed so if offering organisations a similar number of smaller boxes. The price is lower to match the smaller quantity of mangoes. 

Can I order for other people?

Yes, however please be clear in your email about who you are ordering for. It is very confusing when someone orders 10 boxes and then only collects 2 and we need to work out who the other 8 are for.

Or when someone turns up to collect a box that was ordered under another name. We order the exact number of boxes and want to be sure that everyone who has ordered gets their delivery.

 

When will the mangoes be ready?

We are expecting the delivery in late November / early December. When we know the exact date, we will email everyone. Please try to pick up the mangoes within the first 3-4 days as they are in their prime. 

Where is the pickup?

Please nominate whether you would like to pick up your mangoes from Essendon or Diamond Creek. You can select your address by emailing clare@btpa.org.au When we confirm the date we will email you with the exact address. Please also provide a phone number in case we need to contact you.

Is there a Limit?

Unfortunately, the crop is down 70% on last year. This will limit the number of mango boxes we can order. Your best bet is to order today before we reach our limit.
