Fresh Indian Mangos

    Newer Older

    Indian mangos became available in the US recently after a many-year embargo. They're flown over right after being picked (ripened on the tree) so while they're pricey, they're super delicious.

    I bought a box this morning for my dad for father's day at my favorite Indian grocery store in jackon heights, patel bros.

    They reminded my mom and dad of India, and they really do taste qualitatively better than the ones we get from Mexico. They have a very faint lemon/lime taste and aren't fibrous at all. The skin also holds up really well compared to the mangos we're used to in the states, which usually ripen after being picked, a process that leaves them with mushy skins that fall apart.

    Since they just started shipping these, we're getting the cream of the Indian mango crops, hand-selected for export. Every mango in the box was perfect and unmarked.

    They're fantastic.

      i love mangos more than any other fruit, except for maybe little stawberries. i haven't had the "new" indian mangos yet but am dying to try them. this pic is definitely inspiring me to go out of the way to get them.

      Now I want a Mango!
      In India, I think Calcutta has like the best mangoes not that I have been there for along time but since my family lives there - they once sent those BIG mangoes to Delhi.
      It was yummy!

      Now they just need to start offering them on Fresh Direct and have you as their spokesman!

      The mangoes I had in southern India were so delicious -- they tasted like jasmine, the flowers the Karnatakans offer in worship and hang from their hair. I wonder which variety the imports are, as there are hundreds of Indian varieties?
