The Aussie Mango beats the Indian Mango

Apologies to all those I might offend with my comments but I have to say the QLD Mango wins hands down in the world mango comp. in my opinion and that of my children.From Kashmir to Bombay we tried many varieties and did not find one that came close to equalling our Aussie variety,were we unlucky?Any other Aussies out there would like to hear your thoughts,kindest cheers,Carol.

Was it a knockout or a hard-fought points win over ten rounds?

Did you try out the mangoes in Goa and Ratnagiri? The Konkan area produces the most delicious mangoes in India. The mangoes from Northern India are not that good in my opinion.

I don't believe it

I have tasted good no. of Indian varities and have really liked some of them..can't name them all. North India also have some varieties that I have liked..here is link on Delhi Mango Festival which has been happening for 17 years and every year I try to go an pick-up some new varities.

I have not tasted any Australian variety so can't compare.

RTP, The word mango comp has not happened..let there be a fight before the result...

Callous, I am ready to exchange a box of Indian Mangos for a box of Aussie and give a honest report on how I liked it in exchange of a similar report.

I have friends in IM who can help me choose a match winning variety..SO don't take the challange lightly :ThumbsUp

I just have this bizarre image now of a couple of mangoes wearing boxing gloves and slugging it out! I think I drank too much last night....

We were actually in Delhi when the Mango fair was on Ashish and much to my shame we were in too big a hurry to get to Baristsa for a cappucino and a slice of apple cake for our 5 year old so hence did not sample any mangos.Anyway the challenge will be met[any plans for a visit to Aust in the near future,would be more than happy to shout you a Bowen Mango]we have been to India twice this year so I think the kids will send me there permanently if I mention the Motherland again this year.That's not to say we won't return but maybe without the troops for a little skiing in Gulmarg 2007.Anyway hope delightful Delhi has cooled down a little,we were there around the 5th July and it was quite hot.
As for you Rob,that warm english beer must be distorting your brain.Maybe that is your cricket teams dilemma,bring on the Ashes.

3,209 varieties

This could be a messy one, I would have to say that some of the Aussie Hybrid mangoes are exceptional but I have not tried any of the 3,209 Indian varieties as in this link. So we might have to reserve our judgement for a short recess.

I have yet to find an Indian mango to beat varieties like Haden, Parvin, Tommy Atkins, Keitt & Kent.

Indian mangoes I can buy in the UK always taste sickly sweet to me. I have tasted better Indian mangoes in India but even they do not come close to the above mentioned varieties.

Now now Callous..Aussie mango better than India mango? ..That's like saying Indian wine better than Australian. And then what about the Indian women as compare to...

YOU started it..:)

on a more serious note sic..The mangoes on the market look pretty small and taste different than they used too years back. Could this be a result of new farming techniques, ripening process etc? Or bad farming care..or that other countries actuaaly have tastier mangos..oh no

I bet most the "Florida" varieties taste better. :D

Indian varieties I have tried include : Langra, Mankurad, Mulgoa, Neelum, Chausa, Suvarnarekha, Vanraj ,Kesar, Baiganpally, Chausa, Rajapuri,
Daseri and Alphonso. None of these are patch on the like of Haden, Parvin, Tommy Atkins, Keitt & Kent.

I did plant a Mallika sapling on my last trip to India. I have not tasted this but it is said to be a hybrid mango that tastes very good.

The premo mangoes come from the Northern Territories, these are what we compare everything else to. Australian Mangoes from the Northern Territories The R2E2 Hybrid is something else.

That's the problem. Try southern grown mangoes and you will spit out the Aussie variety of mangoes. May you aussie slip on the peel of a aussie mango! :D :D :D :D (Of course I sure don't want you to get hurt and all).
