Sugar Sweet Alphonso Mangoes
I remember reading from The Travelling Hungryboy about these and when we saw some at Mustafa in Little India, we brought a box of 12 home. These were pretty small, inspite of the "King Size" label on the front of the box.
These Alphonso mangoes from India are the sweetest mangoes I've eaten.
They don't look very good, I must say. But the flesh looked promising once you cut them open. And they were so sweet and so juicy... and also milky.. you couldn't stop eating them. Which is a good thing because they do ripen very quickly
These are by far the best mangoes I've ever had.
I'd be going by again to buy a box of Jumbo ones (9 instead of 12 in a box). Both kinds cost about S$20 a box. Apparently these are in season in April and May so if I don't hurry, I'd have to wait til next year.
