Welcome to Izumi Mango Orchard!
Izumi Mango Farm is a family owned mango orchard in Izumi Village, Motobu Town, Okinawa. It was founded by Masahiro Gima, back in 1983 and was one of the first mango orchards in Okinawa. Since the summer of 2017, the farm was taken over by Shiro and Kirsten Gima , Mr Gima's son and daughter in law, who currently run both the Izumi Mango Orchard and Phumula Guest Cottage on the property.
The variety we grow is called IRWIN or in Japan they are known as apple mango. They have a beautiful dark red blush when fully ripe. The taste is bold and almost creamy sweet and the texture smooth because they are fibreless. The brix index ranges from 12 - 16.
We aim to produce mangoes that are both sweet to taste and beautiful in appearance - ideally suited to the Japanese gift market. The culture of summer and winter gifts is common in Japan. Mango is a very much sought after summer gift as its beautiful and delicious.
This website is primarily in Japanese to cater for our large Japanese market if you are struggling to order in Japanese, or find information on the mango PRODUCTS page , then please don`t hesitate to message us on the Izumi Mango Farm | Phumula Cottage Instagram or Facebook Page , or you can email us. (The other option is to use google chrome to read the Japanese text!)
