Mangoes in Western Australia

Mangoes are grown commercially in Western Australia from Kununurra in the north to Gingin in the south. They can be grown further south, but mostly for home consumption. Trees grown south of Carnarvon need to be managed differently due to their susceptibility to frost and pseudomonas bacteria. 

Australian industry

Mangoes are now one of the major horticultural crops in Australia. Australian production has seen dramatic growth over the past 15 years, but remains small on a global scale.

Queensland currently produces the majority of Australia’s mangoes. However, significantly increasing volume is coming from the Northern Territory and a steep rise in production has also occurred in Western Australia.

Western Australian industry

Due to the geography of Western Australia, it is possible to produce fruit from September through to April. Kununurra produces the earliest fruit, followed by Broome, Carnarvon and Gingin.

Some gaps in the production cycle still exist between Broome and Carnarvon, and from Carnarvon to Gingin. However, with the planting of late maturing varieties and increased storage life of fruit, it is possible to achieve continuous supply for seven months in WA.
