I'll be in India in March and April. Am I likely to find any manges? What other fruit will be in season?

Mango season starts in mid-April with the safeda mangoes from Tamil Nadu.
See another recent thread for Fruits in Season around that time.

...Or even sooner; Mrs N came home with three a few days ago.

But it'll be a while before the streets are full of them, and they are full of that utterly overpowering lusciousness that makes eating mango in India an entirely different experience

Thanks for those links, Sanjay. I did a search for "mango" before starting this thread, but got a lot of results which had nothing to do with the divine fruit.

Nick - thats good news,

Any season - if you are the sauve, debonair type .... Ohhh not those type of Mangos

.... well the Ottaur commence the season in February in Kerala .... and culminates with the Chausa in the north.

March through May is peak though ......

Northern Mangoes

I spent a lot of time in Varanasi last spring/summer. Certain mangoes dropped off around April or so, as I remember. Varanasi is also know for a special kind of mango - seemed smaller than others I've seen in India - but when they come, and I think it's May/June/July they are EVERYWHERE.

They use to have a Mango Festival in Delhi each year (still on?) - I went to it once - after an hour of sampling the various varities - they all began to taste exactly the same ... it was mango mania .... be careful if you go though - there were wasps flying around like they were in some WWII dogfight.

I think there is one in Pondicherry as well (festival that is).

Mango Season? Summer. Stops just before the monsoons.

North India has its own varieties.. Langda, Dussehri, Chausa to name a few... and gadha aam (donkey mango... a term used by mango experts to indicate a large mango with not the flavour of the other better breeds)

But in the last few years I am slowly seeing the south indian varieties of mango (which are usually cheaper) creeping into Delhi.

I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.
