The Queen of Mangoes

The season has finally kicked off. I mean, of course, the season for Kesar mangoes the finest and sweetest variety that you can buy. April is the go month when the Kesar’s finally arrive. Forget Mexico and the Dominican Republic with their sour offerings.

If you seek the freshest and juiciest mango then only the Kesar will suffice.

Widely grown in the Indian state of Gujarat the price has risen since last years early rains destroyed a large part of the crop. Expect to pay about $30 for a dozen. It’s definitely worth the coin.kesar-mangoes.jpg
