Badami

Category:

Badami is one of a number of delicious mangoes grown in India. It is slightly earlier than the sort-after Alphonse mango due to its more southerly production but is attractive as a fresh variety. The fruit has pale yellow, thin skin through which it is easy to detect the softness of the flesh. The flesh is an attractive yellow / orange colour, almost totally fibreless. The stone is of medium thickness.

Ripening: When softening of the flesh can be detected, the fruit is ready to eat. The result is a delicious sweet, juicy experience, with a wonderful flavour so evident in many of India’s mango varieties.
