For Food lovers

Food of the gods,Mango,the world's most popular exotic fruit.
Mango season starts from May to September,
The name 'mango' is from the Malayalam/Tamil word "Manga",which was popularized by the Portuguese after their Indian exploration.

Langra, Alphonso and Himsagar are considered among the most superior types of mangoes,these varieties are produced in East and North India, especially in Uttar Pradesh state,the main production of Langra happens in a small town of West Bengal, Malda.

The most common is Alphonso (known in Asia under the original name, Hapoos). Alphonso is very popular outside Indian subcontinent and one of the important export product of India. Grown exclusively in the Konkan region of Maharashtra.Alphonso is named after Afonso De Albuquerque.The locals took to calling this Aphoos in Konkani and in Maharashtra the pronunciation got further corrupted to Hapoos.

The best Alphonso mangos are reputed to come from the town of Ratnagiri and Devgad in Maharashtra.

Banganapalli(also called Banesha or Began Phali) from Andhra Pradesh, Ratnagiri and Devgad Hapoos from Maharashtra are among the most prized varieties in south India.

Dasheri from Lucknow,in Uttar Pradesh is famous for its aroma.

Langra from Varanasi in eastern UP is another variety which is extremely sought after for its fine flavour and aroma,but is not suitable for export because of the perishable nature.
