All mangoes were shipped via Tan Thanh Border Gate in northern Lang Son province and quarantined for diseases and pesticides, Mr Trung noted.

The country imports a huge amount of mangoes from China as July-August period is not mango harvesting season.

According to the PPD, small mango is mainly grown in the western region of Vietnam, China and Laos.

The department also rejected a rumour about artificial small mango on the market while affirming that it is real mango- one of 1,000 existing types of mangoes.
