King Of Fruits Is Here – Mango!

 

King Of Fruits Is Here – Mango!

mango 3

  • Alphonso: How can a list of India’s best mango varieties ever be justified if alphonso did not top that list? The Alphonso or Haapus as we fondly know of it in Maharashtra is the king of mangoes. Countries import indecent amounts of this mango variety from India. Primarily cultivated in the Konkan region, this mango is also the most expensive fruit you can buy in India. We don’t know about you but we will not accept Aam ras and puri unless it’s an alphonso aam ras and puri.
  • Kesar:Most popular in western India and grown extensively in Gujarat, Kesar is the second most popular mango in the country, also exported in large numbers. They are slightly smaller than the alphonso and have a distinct redness to the skin when ripe.
  • Badami: Badami is an affordable mango, large in size with a healthy yellow skin and very meaty. It’s very popular in the western and souther regions of the nation. However, Badami isn’t as sweet as the alphonso and kesar are.
  • Dasehri:Also called Dasheri, this mango is predominant in northern parts of India. It first made an appearance in the gardens of the Nawab of Lucknow in the 18th century. Uttar Pradesh is a top producer of this mango – Andhra & Telangana also produce the fruit is large numbers and the Dasheri is another top exported item from India.
  • Langra:While the Langra actually originates from Benaras, the Bengalis have made it their own along with most of the neighbouring states of West Bengal. Never get into an alphonso versus langra debate with a Bengali. These mangoes retain their greenish tinge even when they ripen and are among those few mangoes that are still available after it rains, often well into July.
  • Banganapalli: Banganapalli or Banganapalle is the fruit of the town of Banganapalli, which lies in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh. It’s a yellowish mango with a meaty texture and we love it because it doesn’t have those weird thready fibres that most mangoes have. Ideal if you don’t want to floss later on.
  • Totapuri:Also known as Bangalora, this is a very popular mango in Bengalooru. But we have seen them selling like hot cakes in Mumbai too and we love these slightly reddish tinged, elongated mangoes. Incidentally, Totapuri mangoes are the parents of two popular mango varieties in Florida, namely Brooks and Anderson (we are trying to not crack a Matrix joke here).
  • Chaunsa: This mango is a Pakistani mango – if you pay heed to the maps of today. But long before those lines were drawn, Chaunsa was simply the mango most popular in the northern parts of our country, including what is now Pakistan. Chaunsa is the mango of choice in the northern parts of India today and is such a delectable, rich and sweet mango that it’s probably the one mango an Alphonso lover can make peace with. And that is saying a lot.
  • Neelam: Neelam mangoes are popular in western and southern India. They are also prevalent in Pakistan. Slightly elongated, maintaining a greenish tinge and also a reddish hue, these mangoes are also the most popular with birds. It’s a miracle human beings can salvage enough for themselves.
  • Sindhura: Sindhura mangoes have a very distinct reddish hue, sometimes speckled with green, and are not very large in size. They dominate the southern parts of the country and are among the first mangoes to arrive in summer – which means they are our starters before we graduate to the main course of Alphonso, Chaunsa, Banganapalli and then Langra!

So go buy mangoes,  you may even see names we have not mentioned in this post! And we are pretty sure we can add ten more names to this list on top but that’s another post for another day!
