Enjoy Tropicana Slice Alphonso - The King of Mangoes in a bottle

Go on and admit it. We love mangoes. We love them so much that secretly, we look forward to the scorching summers to welcome the lush, golden and delicious- Mango, the food of Gods. And we all have a wonderful mango memory that surfaces every time the sweet tropical aroma of mangoes announce the arrival of happy times. In summers, after a long day at work we often cut open a juicy and delicious mango and escape to an imaginary tropical island, blissful no? Apart from being tasty mangoes are loaded with goodness- vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants too.  

Alphonso Mangoes


Our love for the King of Fruit started in our childhood days and over the years we have eaten a variety of mangoes. Some were bought from the market after bargaining with the vendor, a few plucked fresh from a tree during summer vacations and the best ones…… were stolen from a neighbor’s garden . India produces a huge variety of this tropical fruit and we list the 10 popular varieties of mangoes we have enjoyed. So sit back, relax and read our list as you rustle up your own mango memory from your childhood days. 
  1. Alphonso - known as the “King of Mangoes” with sharp sweet notes and a rich tender texture, Alphonso tops our list. We remember travelling many a distance to secure dozens of this variety and then relishing “Aamras” with hot pooris every Sunday fro lunch- A Gujrati’s stairway to heaven: D
  2. Kesar - Known for its long shelf life and unique flavours, Kesar is mostly produced in Gujarat, Pune and Aurangabad. One can make amazing Aamras with Kesar.
  3. Baiganpally or Badami - Grown in Andhra Pradesh and other Southern states, Badami is a favorite because of its thin skin and meaty texture.
  4. Langra - Don’t let the name trick you, this mango is high on taste and low on prices.
  5. Chausa - Take a Chausa (literally it translates to sucker) and suck on it till the last heavenly drop of nectar is consumed leaving behind a white seed. The best way to have it.
  6. Safeda - Juicy and sweet, this mango is in demand globally too.
  7. Dashehari - It comes from a small town called Dussehri in Lucknow and is one of the leading mango varieties of North India.
  8. Totapuri - Known as common man’s mango- Totapuri yields good pulp.
  9. Neelam - Cultivated in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu in Orissa, this mango arrives just before monsoons.
  10. Payari - This is one elusive mango variety. Available for short duration, we Gujratis love to make huge quantities of Aamras with it and dazzling our guests.
