Introduction:

Mangoes: the golden, juicy treasures of India’s orchards, are not just a fruit but an experience. With over a thousand varieties cultivated across the country, each offering a unique blend of flavours, textures, and aromas, mangoes have earned their place as the king of fruits. From the sweet Alphonso to the tangy Totapuri, India boasts an impressive array of mango varieties that enchant fruit lovers worldwide. Let’s embark on a flavourful journey through some of the most popular mango varieties in India that deserve a place on your plate!

1. Alphonso (Hapus):

Known as the “King of Mangoes,” the Alphonso mango reigns supreme for its exquisite taste and buttery texture. Cultivated mainly in the Konkan region of Maharashtra, this variety boasts a vibrant golden hue and a distinct aroma that tantalises the senses. Its rich, sweet flavour makes it a favourite among mango aficionados. Whether enjoyed fresh, as a dessert, or in mango lassis and desserts, the Alphonso never fails to delight.

2. Kesar:

Named after its saffron-like hue and fragrant aroma, the Kesar mango hails from the foothills of Girnar in Gujarat. This variety is celebrated for its balanced sweetness, slight tartness, and smooth, fibreless flesh. Its unique flavour profile, reminiscent of ripe tropical fruits with floral undertones, makes it a sought-after choice for both culinary and dessert preparations. From mango shakes to traditional Indian sweets like Shrikhand, the Kesar mango adds a touch of royal indulgence to every dish.

3. Dasheri:

Originating from the gardens of Dasheri village in Uttar Pradesh, this mango variety is renowned for its juicy pulp, sweet taste, and distinct aroma. With its elongated shape and vibrant yellow skin tinged with hues of red, the Dasheri mango captures the essence of summer in every bite. Its tender flesh, free from fibres, melts in the mouth, leaving behind a lingering sweetness that is simply irresistible. Whether savoured fresh or used in chutneys and pickles, the Dasheri mango promises a symphony of flavours that is both comforting and nostalgic.

4. Langra:

True to its name, which means “lame” in Hindi, the Langra mango boasts an uneven shape due to its irregular ripening process. Originating from the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, this variety is prized for its tangy-sweet taste and fibrous texture. Despite its humble appearance, the Langra mango captivates taste buds with its unique flavour profile, characterised by a perfect balance of acidity and sweetness. Whether enjoyed as a snack or incorporated into savoury dishes like salads and salsa, the Langra mango adds a refreshing twist to every culinary creation.

5. Totapuri:

Named after its distinctive parrot-beak shape, the Totapuri mango is one of the most widely cultivated varieties in South India, particularly in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu. This mango variety is renowned for its tangy-sweet taste, firm flesh, and minimal fibre content. Its elongated form and bright yellow skin make it easily recognisable, while its refreshing flavour profile, with hints of citrus and tropical fruits, makes it a versatile ingredient in both sweet and savoury dishes. Whether sliced and enjoyed as a snack or blended into tangy mango sorbets and curries, the Totapuri mango offers a delightful burst of flavour in every bite.

6. Banganapalli:

Hailing from the town of Banganapalle in Andhra Pradesh, this mango variety is prized for its large size, oblong shape, and smooth, fibreless flesh. With its vibrant golden-yellow hue and sweet, aromatic flavour, the Banganapalli mango is a favourite among mango connoisseurs for its rich taste and juicy texture. Whether eaten fresh, sliced into salads, or pureed into smoothies and desserts, this variety offers a delightful sensory experience that captures the essence of summer.

7. Malda:

Originating from the Malda district of West Bengal, this mango variety is revered for its unique flavour profile, characterised by a perfect balance of sweetness and acidity. With its medium size, round shape, and bright yellow skin tinged with red blush, the Malda mango exudes an irresistible charm that beckons fruit lovers far and wide. Its tender flesh, free from fibres, melts in the mouth, releasing a burst of tropical flavours that evoke memories of lazy summer days. Whether enjoyed fresh or used in jams, jellies, and preserves, the Malda mango promises a taste of pure bliss with every bite.
