Originated in the Caribbean and is still very popular throughout the region. I can’t wait for mangoes to arrive in market. Had author tried the great 'Chanusa' of Pakistan, he would have changed his mind. Glenn is a sweet, mild mango. Angie has a resinous taste, similar to the Carrie mango. Loved the article and its light-hearted tone. Great article! its out of this world when eaten ripe. Some speculate that removing the summer crop may increase the chances of a winter crop by allowing the tree to save the energy that would have been used for fruit production in the summer. It infuriates me when Pakistanis don't agree. It has thin, smooth skin. Haha It is not Anwar Ratol which is the best it is 'Chaunsa' I guess the writer does not even know about chaunsa . Mangoes and no mention of Pakistani Malda(it is originally from Malda in West Bengal) or Langhra- this is criminal negligence/hasty oversight and requires unconditional apology from the author and all commentators- no excuses please. How can i get the mango "Anwar Ratol?" Here in the USA mangoes are completely missing. Know the truth before making the truth. Most of the varieties of mangoes available in grocery stores in the United States can trace their lineage to the Haden mango tree, a tree planted by Jack Haden in 1902 in Coral Gables, Florida (Haden itself can be traced back to Malgova which is misspelled Malgoba in US and has its origin in Tamil Nadu, India). i haven't been home in the mango season for ages, missing them the most as everywhere else Pakistani mangoes are an exotic fruit. Most mangoes grown in the Far East are labelled as Indian (not Pakistani) Mangoes. the anwar ratol are very good, but more sinewy and better for milk shakes and as a dessert topping. You have talked about Anwar Ratol but may forgot to taste and discuss purely Pakistani originated Mango Sindhri. Dussehri, Chausa (after a place in Bihar) and Rataul (place near Delhi). The fruit is ovate in shape and medium to large in size, and round with a slightly flattened base. A mango grafter migrated from Ratol to Pakistan, transplanted a sprig there and named it Anwar, after his father. It is trash when compared to Alphonso. Already good quality Kesar is being grown in Kutch. This is an excellent piece. As my vendor told me when I asked him why they were so late in the market; 'who will buy then when Indian Chausa is available'? Of course our mangoes are better. Anyway a nice light article. The most famous Pakistani mango is known as Anwar Ratol. Known for its distinctively sweet, yellowish pulp and thin skin. There is no Delhi Bombay divide - it is actually the rest of India which appreciates good quality mangoes vs the unfortunate victims on whom the Dasseri is passed off as a mango. Very well written article on mangoes! He would have been a Pakistani mango lover then :-). Hardly. Oh of course.. agreed 100%. Voh gadhae he hain jo aam pasand nahin kartay - Mirza Ghalib. @indialovepakistan Can you rate yemeni mangoes? A variation of the mango that was implanted in Pakistan and has become very popular there. I am all for tasting other varieties. Mangoes are rated on sweetness, aroma, texture and it being soft on the palate. I am all for solving Kashmir, demilitarising Siachen, ending terrorism, increasing trade ties, visa on arrival and so on. They now sell them in Tesco on a mainstream scale durin Ramzan. You look too influenced by Jonathan Swift .....I wish if we could continue to strike the very silly mentality of Indian/Pakistani so that they get ready to accept that fact that we are Lilliputians in every aspect of our daily life......but the worst of it is they are proud of it... Why not start a mango competition between Pakistan & India, perhaps it will have good effect on Ratol village, ignored in India and some other in Pakistan. A Trendy Nature !
