Mr Jenkins, who has 25 years' experience in the business, said large mangoes are uncovered every harvest, but this particular fruit was one of the heaviest he has come across.

"It's pretty big when you think about it."

While the jumbo fruit has attracted plenty of attention, it won't be trucked off to a supermarket.

The average mango weighs around 200 grams, and the CEO of Australian Mangoes, Robert Gray, is not aware of any others to have trumped the Jenkins' find in size.

Jenko's Mangoes started production in August, and they're working through 120 bins of mangoes each day, to produce around 6,000 trays per day.

"We've finished Darwin harvest, and we're now onto Katherine and we've still got about a week to go," Mr Jenkins said.

This year's Northern Territory mango season crop is predicted to yield up to 4.5 million trays.
