Tommy Atkins generally not considered to be the best in terms of sweetness and flavor. Tommy Atkins is valued for its very long shelf life and tolerance of handling and transportation with little or no bruising or degradation. This means it is the main mango sold in regions where mangoes have to be imported, comprising about 80% of mangoes sold in the United Kingdom and United States, apart from growing regions in Hawaii and Florida.
