Karnataka is the largest producer of mangao's in india and bangalore has got the biggest mangao yard in india. The world famous alphonsa from rathnagiri(maharashtra) is very famous and its sister the badami from karnataka is equally good. The best mangao's i liked is mallige. Try punroti jackfruits probably the best in the world.

Alphonsa - so over-rated.

Give me a Langra or Dushheri any day over an Alphonsa (o?)

But to each, her own.

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

Looks like there are varieties of mangoes and tastes based on region. I love Kerala Mangoes.

I heard about Alphonsa and Banarasi mangoes. Wanted to try them. They must be very good.

Jackfruit ! Wow ! That is the best.

Yeah ! I also want to try Kerala Mangoes. In fact before today, I didn't even know that mangoes are grown in Kerala. I associated Kerala with Spices and Rubber only....

We get Andhra mangoes (Baiganpalli) in Delhi but not the Kerala ones..... May be I need to visit INA market soon....

And by jackfruit do you mean that big prickly thing which has sticky fibres inside. If yes, then here up north we use it only as vegetable and not fruit....

I haven't seen anybody eating it just like that !

Oh ! How vast and unfathomable is our country.....

We eat these as vegetables when they are green. It's not eaten as fruit here.

I love jackfruit even more than mango.

In Chennai it sells for one or two Rs a piece (I'm so totally out of touch with prices since I got married but Rs2, I think, depending on the quality. It is sweet and succulent, and the pieces that woudl have gone off by tomorrow are, as with many fruits, the nicest.

It is a lot cheaper to buy a whole fruit, but it is very hard work to cut open and prepare. It is very sticky work; it is full of a latex-like stuff. One puts coconut oil on the hands and knives to make it workable.

In Kerala, there are so many trees, I gather it has little value!

Yep... had lots of jackfruit chips too, though I prefer plantain for chips.

I love Jackfruit so much, I would not want to mix it with anything! I have not experienced it being fibrous at all, just succulent and delicious

Magos galore.

Get your skates on in the UK to the local Asian shops. Stacks of boxes of 'fresh, ripe and ready to eat' Alphonso, Langra and Honey mangos by the box full now available since beginning of the week. Imported from both Pakistan and India. Box of 6, approx 2kg Alphonso cost me £3.50 (about 260 rupees) or a box of twelve, (Honey) approx 4kg at £5.00 (about 380 rupees)
Bought my first box and now hoping for a long season here in the UK. Last year was very good and lasted not far off three months.

What a difference to those green and red 'things' on sale in Tesco and Sainsburys and even Waitrose at anything from £1.50 to £2.00 each.

Enjoy while we can

Regards all

Hi Vandy,
Is that the Kensington Pride variety as mentioned by Govindpuri? I remember my cousin carrying back some mangoes from Oz last year - those looked similar to what you have posted. I remember him saying that these were called Irwin, and were originally from Florida. Funny thing was when the customs stopped him because of the mangoes. Guess they were at a loss to understand as to why someone would bring mangoes from half-way around the world when you can get them abundantly in India.

No offence to Australian mangoes - but they simply can't compare with the Alphonso or Langra.

For the quizzically inclined - the Alphonso gets it's name from Alfonso de Albuquerque, Portuguese Governor of Goa from 1509-1515, who is said to have promoted the mango in Maharashtra and the Konkan regions.
