Can you believe i paid $5 a piece for these mangoes? Actually i didn’t, Big Bossman did but they enjoyed it as much as i did. These mangoes rock!
I was a little bit suspicious at first but after a bite i knew it was worth every penny. The flavour is intensely rich, sweet and full with multiple aromatic overtones and hints of citrus and flower aroma. Nothing like i ever tasted before. These are Kesar mangoes imported from India and available for the first time in the US. Look for the Alphonso variety too which is a bit bigger but just as good. Those are the King and Queen of all Indian mangoes which is a big deal since nearly 70% of the world mangoes are produced in India, but none taste like these two. Their flavour is out of this world.
A ban on imported Indian mangoes was lifted last year in the US and many other countries and they are now available in fancy markets and online stores – but for a bundle of cash of course. The season is short though, april to june only, so hurry up if you want to get a taste. Go to the web address on the sticker www.wholechoice.com if interested or do a web search. Cheers!
