The one type that has struck a chord with almost everyone in India and globally is the alphonso mango. Also known as the hapus mango, Alphonso is the specialty of the Konkan coast of Maharashtra.

Alphonso mango was brought to India by a Portuguese military expert, Alfonso de Albuquerque. 

The Portuguese also brought the art of grafting to India, eventually leading to the grafting of mango saplings.

Today, hapus mango is grown all across Konkan. Konkan's climate, volcanic soil, and topography facilitate the cultivation and add to Alphonso mangoes' flavor. 

However, two regions: Devgad and Ratnagiri, grow unique variants of the hapus mango. These variants have a unique flavor, aroma, and texture.

Devgad is a tiny taluka comprising 98 villages, and mango orchids span over 45,000 hectares of land. 

It boasts a small harbor, a beach, a lighthouse, and a fort. However, this tiny taluka produces export-grade Alphonso mangoes.

Devgad produces a unique variant of the hapus mango, which has earned international fame.

It is unique to Devgad alphonso mango's medium size, an attractive yellow-orange color, thin skin, and thick pulp.

It has skin that is much thinner than other kinds of Alphonso mangoes. This thin skin ensures that the fruit yields more of that rich, creamy, and sweet goodness!
