Why is mango called bathroom fruit?

The British never understood and tried to twist the name for mango.

That too, if it was an Alphonso Mango, it was under their enmity as Alfanso D Albergue, the king of Mango fruits.

The late Dr. M S Randhawa once wrote that the British did not savor the sight of Indians squatting on the floor and sucking on mangoes, with the juice flowing down their elbows. They often referred to it as the 'bathroom fruit.
