    • Carabao mango may be the sweetest but according to many mango connoisseur Alphonso is the world standard with its complex taste.

    • 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.

  9. Khieo Sawoei, a Thai mango, the best mango in the the world that you can try – so Pranee, my student, tells me!

  10. Carabao mango is the sweetest mango in the world. Search it, it’s a fact. And should by #1 mango by its taste, shape and color.

  11. Of course – it’s subjective – different people have different tastes – but the best I’ve tasted is the Rabaul mango in Papua New Guinea. I think it might be similar to or the same as the varieties known as Cedar Bay or mangga golek

  12. Really i love Anwar Atol and sindhri with chunsa mangoes of sindh Pakistan sweet and pleasant taste and excellent and charming smell

  13. Have tried over 50 different varieties as I import fruit. Chaunsa from Pakistan is the best hands down!

  14. Believe the big ones are among: MULGOBA-KEIITT-FAZLI hope you get some of them for me.Live in Pinellas County,Florida.

  15. I have several mango trees in my backyard. Can’t tell the difference between leaves, they all look the same to me. They were all just thrown in my compost bend. With 14 trees, they all should be great. Planted with Love. Happy Gardening, most of all SHARING.

  16. Thank you for this information. You say that Number 11 is not for everybody. Why is that? We have a local mango here that is very fibrous and I don’t like it at all. Someone just gave us 2 number 11 to plant in our garden, I want to make sure they are good mangos.

  17. This article has completely incorrect info, listing the topmost Pakistani mangoes as from ‘North Indian subcontinent’ instead of clearly saying Pakistan. They have deliberately added ‘Indian’ to the name in the usual sneeky Indian way.
    And btw, Alfonso doesn’t come anywhere close to the “Pakistani” Chaunsa, Sindhri, and esp Anwer Rathol in taste.

  18. Wow, everyone is so passionate about their favorite. I will eat most any Mango, but do not like the fiber in some that I have had. How about, you all send me fresh mangos in refrigerated boxes so I can try them all. LOL

  19. If I did a blind fold test and let most people try 10 different mangoes that were all low fiber. Few would be able to tell me what they are eating

  20. I have two mango trees in my central Florida yard but I don’t know the variety. Fist sized, green – turn slightly reddish yellow when ripe with LOTS of fibers. Very sweet but not sure if I’m using at the proper time – they get very soft very fast. Would love to learn more.
