Why the Alphonso Mango?
If you’ve ever tasted an Alphonso Mango, you’ll know why they’re a national obsession in India. Smooth and buttery with hints of honey, sweet fruits, melon and citrus, these “King of the Mangoes” rule India during their short eating season. There are several varieties of Alphonso mangoes, many that are showcased by top-rated chefs at mango festivals.
Vendors on the street squeeze the fresh juice, home cooks add them to curries and lassi drinks, desserts, sweet treats and pakoras, while others hang out at mango parties dunking puris (Indian fried bread) into cream-thickened Alphonso-Mango puree.
Whatever your favorite way is, you’ll love our Organic Alphonso Mango Puree for its rich taste, vibrant color and natural sweetness. No need to add sugar; it’s perfectly sweet just as it is.

Did You Know?
These luscious mangoes are named for Alphonso de Albuquerque, a nobleman who co-founded a Portuguese colony in India. It was the Portuguese who began grafting mango trees to grow exceptional varieties like these that were eventually introduced to Maharashtra, Gujarat and other regions of South India.
Interestingly, this variety of mango has only been successfully grown in India. The climate and soil of India is unmatched, and the mango has failed to grow anywhere else in the world, making it extremely rare to come by in other regions.
There are over 1,500 varieties of mango. Due to its popularity, Alphonso mango production in India employs over 1 million farmers and uses approximately 400,000 acres of land for cultivation.
Alphonso mangoes were banned in the United States from 1989 until 2007 due to political reasons. The ban was eventually lifted when the U.S. made a deal with India the allow the import of mangoes if India allowed the import of Harley-Davidson motorcyles.
“India is to mangoes as Bordeaux is to wine...
...There’s nothing better than a great Alphonso mango.”
