Alphonse, often termed Alphonso, is among the finest of Indian dessert mangos. Originating in Goa, Alphonse weighs 10 oz, with an ovate-oblique shape. The fruit can be green or a bright yellow depending on the environmental conditions, and they often have a pink blush on the sun-exposed shoulder. The ripening fruit are the perfect accent for the kitchen, perfuming the air with a wonderful sweet and fruity aroma. The flavor also is intensely sweet, rich and full, with multiple aromatic overtones and a hint of citrus. There is no fiber in the orange, melting flesh. Alphonse is best eaten out-of-hand, and is exported from India to specialty markets in Europe, where it is sold for a good price. The fruit are harvested firm, at the mature green stage, and are not refrigerated prior to ripening. Mature-green fruit are ripened at 70F to develop optimal flesh texture, flavor and aroma.
Alphonso is considered by many to be the best Indian cultivar in terms of sweetness and flavor. One of the rarest varieties and sought after - sweet large juice fruit.
