The fruit would be allowed into Australia as long as they were treated with irradiation before leaving India, Xinhua news agency reported. This meant that Australians would be able to enjoy the fruit long after the local season ended.
The Australian Mango Industry Association's Robert Gray said Indian mangoes would be imported when the native season was over, ensuring a constant supply for those who enjoy the golden fruit.
Kay Bee Exports Chief Executive Kaushal Khakhar - who will be sending his mangoes to Australia - said shipments would be made up of two varieties - Alphonso and Kesar.
"Alphonso is slightly tricky but handled well, it is one of the best varieties in India," he told Fresh Fruit Portal. "Kesar is the best commercial variety because it has a good price, good flavour, and it handles very well." He added that if the Indian-sourced fruit passed all standard testings, the deal would be beneficial for the Australins.
