Van Dyke Mango
The sacalão had a new variety of mango. It was advertised as the "Vemdek" (if I remember correctly) but it's actually a Van Dyke. It was grown in Florida (most likely a descendent of the Haden). It isn't very fibrous, so it's not very stringy, which is a plus. The flavor is very sweet, and it doesn't have much of a bite or tangy flavor, which in my opinion, is a minus. Not bad, but not great.
