    Are Indian mangoes still banned in Europe, including Russia? We are looking for a reliable supplier of organic mango varieties that would survive the 50-60 day seat journey to Russia in an isothermal (climatically controlled) shipping container. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

    I’m newly open a firm. I’m interested to supplying the Fresh Mangoes from the West Bengal in INDIA. How can I contact with you. Kindly send me an e-mail.


    The best in north India are Dusshehri and Langda — these can be cut and served. Dusshehri used for milk-shake too.
    Next are Bambaiya and Chaunsa. Bambaiya should be sucked upon. Chaunsa is cut and served.
    Small in size and full of sweet aroma are Gulab-khas and Sindooriya. The local tastes use them differently in sorbets, shakes, ice creams and sweets and baked treats.
    The most local and small in size is Choonsa. Every piece tastes different and definately not the sweetest variety. Kids love these. Well all kids love all mangoes.
    Totapuri is not a respectable variety as it is better eaten semi-ripe with Chaat-masala Or black/white salt + red chilli powder.

    • Farooque

      Amit, If you are a mango enthusiast then you must know that whatever you might be calling Bambaiya in the North, no such variety in Mumbai. The famous variety from Konkan is Alphonso or Aapus in Konkani. The best mango from the South by far is the Imam Pasand or Imayat. I wish you tasted both, the Alkphonso and Imayat. Enjoy the season.

  • Zhenkar

    There is another famous variety in southern India Called “Katthe tholdu mavinkai” . which translates to “Donkey ball sack mango”. B’coz it literally looks like a donkey’s ball sack.
