The Indian Kesar Mango is so popular it has to be auctioned.
The Kesar mango is one of the most sought-after varieties in India. It is so popular that traders sell it via a huge auction in the western state of Gujarat.
Taste: Intense, sweet, flavoursome.
Kesar is India’s second mango variety in terms of exports. In terms of flavour, it is second only to Alphonso, which many describe as the best on the planet.
Kesar is a small to medium fruit with a roundish shape and a distinct curved tip. It has a relatively unexciting appearance, having skin that is a dull, slightly mottled yellow colour, perhaps with a green tinge when less mature.
Inside it is a different matter: a deep yellow-orange flesh, smooth and fragrant with intense sweetness when they are in peak condition.
There can be a slight acid edge to the flavour in less mature fruit, but many people will enjoy this complexity.
The medium sized stone has minor fibre attached which does not detract from enjoyment.
