A mango is a ripe stone fruit grown from tropical trees in the Anacardiaceae flowering plant family and the genus Mangifera. It is believed to have originated in India. A seasonal fruit, the Alphonso is available from the middle of April through the end of June.
The weight of the fruits varies, but typically ranges between 150 and 300 grams. The flesh of Alphonso mangoes is soft, non-fibrous, and delicate with a rich, creamy texture.
A fully mature Alphonso mango develops beautiful golden-yellow skin with a reddish tinge that covers the top of the fruit. The fruit’s flesh has a saffron hue. These qualities make the Alphonso the preferred fruit in India.
