SWEET TASTE, GOLDEN COLOUR AND AROMATIC PULP
The desire to deliver farm fresh Alphonso Mango right at your door-step, lead to the birth of
Wah! Mango. It is an initiative taken by TCI Egift, a division of TCI Express Ltd..
Alphonso mango is known as the “King of mango” because of its delicious tropically fruity sweet taste and juicy saffron/golden coloured non-fibrous tender texture of its flesh. It has a significantly thinner more shiny skin. Fully ripened Alphonso mangoes also release an aromatic fruity fragrance in the air. These qualities have been attributed to a unique combination of geographical conditions which are only present in Western India, especially near coastlines of Maharashtra and Goa.
These mangoes are harvested only once every year in the months of April and May and most of the stock is sold and consumed locally within India. The rest is exported to countries like U.S.A, U.K, Australia with large populations of Indian diaspora. Exquisite taste and flavours, limited availability and local and overseas consumption has made Alphonso mangoes infamous for their high prices.
It is also one of the most expensive varieties of mango and is grown mainly in the western part of India including Sindhudurg, Ratnagiri and Raigad districts and in the Konkan region of India. Each mango weighs between 150 and 300 grams (5.3 and 10.6 oz).
