Just over a week ago I was in Leicester and I bought some Egyptian mangoes from someone near Jameah Masjid ends. Anyway the mangoes were big and sweet. Generally there's a difference in taste between Indian and Pakistani mangoes and others but these were up there with the South Asian mangoes . I've had mangoes when I went Zanzibar too but they were more sour than sweet. I've tried Brazilian and I think Ivory Coast mango in UK but I've not been tempted to buy it again. Just wanted to ask apart from South Asian mangoes which countries mangoes do members enjoy.

I don't buy mangoes.

There were rumours a couple of years back about the Indian mangoes being injected with some kind of chemical to preserve it for longer or to make them sweeter. I remember not seeing them around for some time.

Not sure how true that was, but not seeing them around as much, especially in places where they sell well, like Wembley, a highly populated Hindu area, gave more reason to believe the rumours.

Mirza Ghalib and Mangoes

Mirza Ghalib was the famous poet of India, Bahadur Shah Zafar was the last (Muslim) King of India. Mirza Ghalib loved Mangoes and Bahadur Shah Zafar hated Mangoes.

One day, both were walking in Delhi on a hot late afternoon when a donkey passed by , it smelled some Mango peels and then moved on (without eating).

Bahadur Shah Zafar was also a poet and well versed in sarcasm so he said

Bahadur Shah Zafar: See Mirza, even donkeys don't like Mangoes

Mirza Ghalib (instantly replied): Indeed Sir, donkeys don't like Mangoes!

Bahadur Shah Zafar enjoyed the retort so much that he sent a carton of Fresh Mangoes to Mirza's house as a gift.

Its hilarious in Urdu but may be not so funny in English and yes it has been thrown back at me so many times in life...

In my mind the best mangoes in the world come from Guimaras in the Philippines - Mangga Kalabaw (Carabao Mango) is the best variety and the sweetest variety of mango in the world. One of these fresh off the tree beats anything I've had from any other country in either the Eastern or Western hemisphere.

Best is Kesar from India, very sweet n we buy loads of them, other varieties from India are Badami, Alphonso.
Honey brand are from Pakistan not better than Kesar, however the Chausa brand from Pakistan are good.

All other brands fromother countries dont really like as not as sweet.

Alphonso and Kesar are the best. No wonder they are considered king and queen of mangoes respectively.

The problem we have in the UK is that they are expensive and you get many rotten ones in your box.

I wonder if many youngsters in the UK even buy mangoes nowadays considering the cost compared to other fruits and chances of getting a rotten one when you cut through it?

In India, mangoes vary from around $1 a kilo to about $5 a kilo. That sounds like about par with UK prices.

Only if you live in Maleehabad, or Warangal, or some other mango growing region. There are no mangoes to pluck and eat in many parts of Rajasthan and Laksha Dweep.

Is Brother Sharif alluding to the story of Shaykh Ibrahim bin Ad'ham RH when he talks about caution while plucking fruit? BTW, nice to see you posting here, brother Sharif.

Incidentally, Maleehabadi mangoes were the cause of friction between Shaykhul Hadeeth Hazrat Zakariyya Kandhelvi RH and a relative. The story is mentioned in his Aap Beeti.
