Have you ever tried an Alphonso Mango?
Alphonso is known as ‘The King‘ of mangos as it is considered as one of the best varieties in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor.
If you’ve ever had one you know exactly what we are talking about. If you haven’t imagine a cross between peach, nectarine, apricot and melon with notes of honey and citrus– but better.
It is primarily grown in Western India. Alphonso tastes and looks different from the larger, more familiar Latin American mangoes with red, green, and yellow skins The Alphonso is compact and round, with smooth, yellow and red skin. It smells sweet and faintly floral, and when you cut one open it reveals bright, almost neon-orange flesh.
