INDIA IS A LAND OF MANGO DIVERSITY

The much-vaunted Alphonso is still considered the “king of mangoes” in India, but in Goa, the locals still prefer the more-rooted Mancurado variety, according to executive chef at the Taj Fort Aguada Resort and Spa Hrudananda Behera, who is anchoring the ongoing mango festival at the five-star resort. 
“Alphonso is considered to be among the most superior variety of the fruit in terms of sweetness, richness and flavour. Totapuri and langada are mildly sweet in flavour. When it comes to home-grown varieties, mancurado is preferred by the locals as the texture is thick and has a sweet and juicy pulp,” Behera told IANS on the sidelines of the event.http://www.thehealthsite.com/news/alphonso-mancurado-and-other-mangoes-in-goa-ag0518/
