    • No, they are not all good. The ones that have a lot of fiber are not very good, IMO. I like the Carrie, M4 and Coconut Cream the best. The ones in the store are not good at all. I never even knew I liked mangoes until moving to Florida.. now I am trying to grow my own.

  1. Oh it’s a competition! And Kesar is no.1 , followed by either Alphonso or Badami!

    You can’t touch Indian mangoes, no time to be eating Carapoopsies.

  2. Mankurad has been No 1 and shall remain so, my open challenge anyone in this universe,
    those who have not seen,heard or tasted yet to ascertain same with a statement that all these mangoes are not to match a callibre of Mankurad even 0.1% , so now you can imagineg guys

  3. Badami is good but Mallika is very sweet.
    It is all depending of cutivation & soil.
    Kolor of karnataka is good for manogos.
    Like wise konkan of Maharasta for Alphonso.

  4. Consumers,

    The “Rainbow” mango is the best tasting mango available….it will become more popular as soon as it gets more exposure to the U.S. Mangoes are very excellent tasting fruit which most people are not aware of. The previous varieties such as Tommy Atkins are not as edible as the new varieties that coming on now. The Tommy Atkins looked decent, shipped well, and had excellent production for the growers but that where it stopped as far as advantages. Be patient, the Rainbow, Coconut Cream, Honey Kiss, and Lemon Zest mangoes are to be available soon. The mango for informational purposes, is the most consumed fruits in all the world, it retains almost 40% of world fruit consumption. Appreciate the contact with the readers.

  5. Alphonso mangoes are maybe marketed well but reality is atleast in India there is no match for Kesar. Must try and compare yourself.

  6. The Cuban bizcochuelo is one of the best for me. Grew up eating them. It is not mentioned. Have my own tree in south Florida.

  7. I tasted my first mango 20 years ago: it was disgusting! Yellow one. Probably wrinkly. I never ate a mango until recently it was meh and expensive. I bought another from the Mexican market (cheap) red mangoes and THE BEST IN THE WORLD!!! So yes, it IS a competition. Some are really sour and tasteless and not sweet. They should be EXTINCT! Why aren’t red mangoes from MEXICO here?? They’re the best! (And why are Haden, Kent and Neelam different varieties? They all look the same with little red.)

  8. can yall just shut the frick up. no fucking mango is better. stop turning this into an argument. different people can have different fucking opinions so shut the fuck up.
