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...
