Why Mango Is Famous Worldwide?

65 / 100
Indian mango is among the finest in the world, and thus a much-loved symbol of national pride and identity. Because the delectable fruit is available for only a few months each year, mango season becomes a national sensation–both socially, and commercially.
Come March, everybody eagerly waits for the first batches of ripe mangoes to show up at local fruit markets. When they finally arrive, they make headlines, and newspapers provide regular updates on prices and availability throughout the summer.
India has long been the single largest producer of mangoes globally, growing over 40 percent of the world’s total supply. But it accounts for only about one percent of the international mango trade. Import regulation issues have meant that Indian mangoes aren’t easily available in the US, UK, and Europe. Domestic demand is so high though, that India is able to consume most of the millions of tons of mangoes produced annually, locally.
There are different varieties of mangoes ripen across different parts of the country. Southern and western states get warmer first, so the fragrant, sugary Alphonso from Ratnagiri is widely considered the best variety – though some think they’re too sweet.
Mild, buttery Badami’s and firm, tart Totapuris ripen earlier. Delicious North Indian varieties including plump, green Langras, and elongated Dussehris and Chausas become available a few weeks later, as they ripen around May and June.
Like a fine wine, people take pleasure in being able to identify the region a mango comes from based only on taste.
