Do you know what Alphonso Mango and Origin
Are there any who haven't heard of the King of Mangoes' Alphonso Mango' in their lifetime? We don't think so. Portuguese started the sweet and rich flavor of the Alphonso mangoes grown during the mango season in the Western Ghats of India. Their Viceroy Afonso De Albuquerque, who conquered the state of Goa in the fifteenth century, established the presence of the Portuguese in India.
Mango in India
Mango was grown since time undefined because of their reference found in Upanishads and other sacred religious texts of Hinduism. However, the specific Alphonso variant was Portuguese introduced with grafting on the Mango tree in Konkan. Alphonso Mango's history is way behind from the 12th century. Still, it was more developed by Afonso de Albuquerque; somewhere in 1508, he landed intending to gain control of all maritime trade routes for the East. Afonso de Albuquerque, who conquered Goa, wanted to make his Naval base in Goa against Muslim rulers. He first attempted Cochin and Tamil Nadu, but when unsuccessful, he tried to attack Goa with his 23 ships.
Afonso de Albuquerque did the naval base for diverting spice trade and used it to supply Persian Horses to Hindu Kings in India. He was Warrior in his career but a farmer and researcher by heart while moving around western India. He found Mango in India during the Mango season and the Indian variety of mango trees. That time it was good n taste firm flesh. Thought that these mango varieties could be traded on the spice route and sent back to the King & Queen of Portugal as there was abundant mango production in Konkan.
He did a bit of research on this tree, developed a new Variety by grafting on a mango tree, and developed King of mangoes Alphonso Mango. These Mangoes had firmer fleshy pulp and could withstand the transportation time on the sea. He contributed to this Variety of Mango, now world-famous King of Mango. Since then, it has grown in the Western India Konkan area of Maharashtra and the western seacoast of India. This fruit is the best and the most expensive variety of mangoes worldwide. Certain varieties of Alphonso mangoes are grown in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu in Salem. But they are not as tasty and juicy as Konkan Alphonso mango.
