From the producer:
Alphonso mangoes are highly regarded for their rich taste, vibrant color, and smooth, buttery texture. Alphonso mango puree is naturally sweet, so no need to add additional sugar. Use on top of ice cream; blend with milk or yogurt to make lassies; add to fruit salads, jellies, smoothies, pastries, and cakes. Try in broths & curries.
If you’ve ever tasted an Alphonso Mango, you’ll know why they’re a national obsession in India. Smooth and buttery with hints of honey, sweet fruits, melon and citrus, these “King of the Mangoes” rule India during their short eating season. There are several varieties of Alphonso mangoes, many that are showcased by top-rated chefs at mango festivals. Vendors on the street squeeze the fresh juice, home cooks add them to curries and lassi drinks, desserts, sweet treats and pakoras, while others hang out at mango parties dunking puris (Indian fried bread) into cream-thickened Alphonso-Mango puree. Whatever your favorite way is, you’ll love our Organic Alphonso Mango Puree for its rich taste, vibrant color and natural sweetness. No need to add sugar; it’s perfectly sweet just as it is.

In case you’re wondering, these luscious mangoes are named for Alphonso de Albuquerque, a nobleman who co-founded a Portuguese colony in India. It was the Portuguese who began grafting mango trees to grow exceptional varieties like these that were eventually introduced to Maharashtra, Gujarat and other regions of South India. Interestingly, this variety of mango has only been successfully grown in India. The climate and soil of India is unmatched, and the mango has failed to grow anywhere else in the world, making it extremely rare to come by in other regions.
