1st Mallika Mango
A friend gave me one of these. I gave her one of my few Rosigold mangos and she gave me one of her few Mallikas.
The taste is very sweet, silky (no fiber), and very good. It reminded me of a super-sweet Kent mango. The Mallika has a very strong floral bouquet (when cut) and leaves a floral aftertaste. The taste itself is not too complicated (extremely sweet...a little "piney" near the skin, which I liked). I was surprised at how large the mangos are...about the size of a Valencia Pride mango. Interestingly, on the back of the mango, near the bottom, is a tiny point or horn-like protuberance. I'm happy I have a tree! Here are some pics:
I was told that the green area on the skin is where it was rubbing (branches, other fruit...I don't know; it's not my tree).
