Description: Mango (Mangifera indica) is the leading fruit crop of India and considered to be the king of fruits. Besides delicious taste, excellent flavour and attractive fragrance, it is rich in vitamin A&C. The tree is hardy in nature and requires comparatively low maintenance costs. Mango fruit is utilised at all stages of its development both in its immature and mature state. Raw fruits are used for making chutney, pickles and juices. The ripe fruits besides being used for desert are also utilised for preparing several products like squashes, syrups, nectars, jams and jellies. The mango kernel also contains 8-10 percent good quality fat which can be used for soap and also as a substitute for cola in confectionery.
This mango from Tamil Nadu, first introduced by the royal family of Banganapalli in Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh is super sweet, supremely delicious way and nearly not as inexpensive as the Alphonso. If you’re planning on gorging on mangoes and don’t want to break the bank – I’d recommend a Banganapalli.
It is a widely cultivated, early maturing mango of south India. It is the main commercial variety of Andhra Pradesh. Its fruits are large sized, weighing on an average 350-400 g. The pulp is fibreless, firm and yellow with sweet taste. Fruits have good keeping quality.
Care: Mango can be grown under both tropical and sub-tropical climate from sea level to 1400 m altitude, provided there is no high humidity, rain or frost during the flowering period. Places with good rainfall and dry summer are ideal for mango cultivation. It is better to avoid areas with winds and cyclones which may cause flower and fruit shedding and breaking of branches.
Mango can be grown on a wide variety of soils under varied climatic conditions. It can be grown from alluvial to lateritic soils except in black cotton soil having poor drainage. It grows well in soils with slightly acidic pH. It does not perform well in soils having pH beyond 7.5. Soils having good drainage are ideal for mango.
