THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER MANGOES IN THE WORLD ....













While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.


The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

Alphonso





Alphonso (mango)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia








Alphonso (हापुस Haapoos in Marathi, હાફુસ in Gujarati, ಆಪೂಸ್ Aapoos in Kannada) is a mango cultivar that is considered by many[who?] to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor. 



It has considerable shelf life of a week after it is ripe making it exportable. 


It is also one of the most expensive kinds of mango and is grown mainly in Kokan region of western India.


 It is in season April through May and the fruit weigh between 150g and 300g each.



Overview



Dense Plantation of Alphonso Mangoes




The Alphonso Mango is named after Afonso de Albuquerque. This was an exquisite and expensive variety of mango, that he used to bring on his journeys to Goa


The locals took to calling it Aphoos in Konkaniand in Maharashtra the pronunciation got further transformed to Hapoos. 


This variety then was taken to the Konkan region of Maharashtra and other parts of India.

The southern district of Ratnagiri and south northern parts of Sindhudurg in Maharashtra state, including regions around the Dapoli and DEVGAD Talukas, produce the finest quality alphonso mangoes in India. 


The southern districts of Valsad and Navsari in Gujarat state and particularly Alphonso mangoes from the Amalsad region (including villages such as Dhamadachha, Kacholi, and all villages of Gandevi) produce Alphonso mangoes as well. Southern States in India are also major mango producing areas. From north to south, climatic changes occur which result in differences in the quality of the produce. In Ratnagiri the finest fruit comes from a patch of 20 km from the seashore.

The variety grown in Ratnagiri district of the Kokan region of Maharashtra is supposed to be the best. It's also the most expensive amongst the sub-breeds of Alphonso. In most of the Indian market sub-varieties are fetching the price of good quality alfonso. These varieties neither have the sweetness, nor have the flavour of hapoos.

The Alphonso is generally referred to as 'Hapoos' throughout South Asia.

In April 2007, the United States lifted its ban on the import of Indian mangoes, including the Alphonso. The first batch of Alphonso mangoes arrived in the U.S. after an 18 year hiatus. However, the mangoes must be treated before entering the country in order to stop the introduction of non-native fruit flies, destructive fungi, and other pests that could cause great damage to American agriculture. Individuals cannot bring mangoes into the United States in luggage or ship them by mail.

Haapus is used to make sweets, candies and smoothies - Mango Milkshake, Mango Lassi (both smoothies), Aamba-Wadi (a somewhat chewy sweet), Aam-Ras (Mango pulp which is eaten with puris - an Indian Bread), Sakhar Amba (Marathi word for a home-made mango jelly/jam), Mango barfi (see Barfi), etc.

Non aerated Mango drinks like Frooti (Parle Agro Co.), Jumpin (Godrej Industries Ltd), Maaza (Coca Cola Co.), Dukes Mangola and Slice (PepsiCo Inc.) are very popular in India. Many other local brands are also available. Alphonso mangoes are mostly exported from Ratnagiri and sindhudurg districts of Maharashtra

Philippine Super Mango (var. ‘Carabao’) – One of the best variety



Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo showing the Philippine Super Mango (var. 'Carabao')



According to the Guiness Book of World Records, the Philippine Super mango (var. ‘Carabao’) is considered the best mango in the world. The National Seed Industry Council of the Philippines has approved strains of ‘Carabao’ mango variety such as Guimaras Experiment Station (GES # 74, 77, 84 and 85), Talaban, Fresco, Golden and Sweet Elena.
The unique blending taste of sourness and sweetness, makes it uncomparable to other varieties. To measure the sweetness taste of ripe fruit, a gadget known as a refractometer is being used. In the case of the ‘Carabao’ mango variety, the highest reading is about 22 Brix.

The sweetness of mango is highly influenced by nutrient management (high in potassium or calcarious type of soil/ rich in lime) and cultural management practices such as harvesting at the right maturity age (110-115 days after flower induction during dry cropping season, and 120-125 days after flower induction during the wet cropping season).
