It’s summer in India and it is as hot as heck. And it can get quite unbearable at times. But there is one reward to all this. It’s mango season and I’m on a mango odyssey.
So, over the course of my stay here I’ll be sharing with you mango I am sampling and I plan to end my odyssey by attending the International Mango Festival the day before I leave India.
So here are the first two mangoes I sampled in the south in Madurai.
This mango is called Kasalattu. It’s almost half the size of the mango above and delicious as well. This is going to be tough rating them all I can see. Less meaty obviously since it is smaller. Not stringy which is great. Sweet. Thumbs up. Dandapani’s seal of approval!
So far so good. Off to search and sample the next variety…..after I lick my fingers clean!
