Introduction

The Alphonso Mango is renowned for its unparalleled sweetness and buttery texture. Considered the "King of Mangoes", this mango is thought to be superior to all others in flavour, texture, and sensation.

History

Alphonso Mango has a fascinating historical background that traces its roots back to ancient India. Named after the Portuguese nobleman Afonso de Albuquerque, who introduced the fruit to the western world, it holds a place of distinction in Indian culture and cuisine. This mango variety has long been celebrated for its luscious flavour and is considered the "King of Mangoes" in many parts of the world.

Regions

Alphonso Mango originated in the western regions of India, specifically the Konkan region of Maharashtra. The ideal tropical climate, fertile soil, and abundant sunshine in this area contribute to the mango's exceptional quality. Today, it is also cultivated in select regions of Gujarat and Karnataka in India, and its popularity has led to limited cultivation in other parts of the world, including Kenya and the Caribbean.

Flavours & Texture

The Alphonso Mango is bursting with an exquisite sweetness. Its flavour profile features notes of honey, apricot, and tropical fruit. The flesh is incredibly smooth, velvety, and buttery, melting in your mouth with each bite. The texture is tender, with minimal fibre, allowing the luscious flavours to take centre stage.

Preparation

Begin by gently washing the fruit and removing the skin. Cut the mango into slices or cubes, discarding the large seed at the centre. The succulent flesh can be enjoyed as is.

Nutritional Value

Alphonso mangoes contain plenty of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C, and K, and magnesium, manganese, and phosphorus.
