The Alphonso mango is a seasonal, tropical fruit (in India, it is available in end March-May) and is delicious to eat.

  1. Alphonso is named after a Portuguese nobleman and military expert who helped establish the Portuguese colony in India.
  2. It was the Portuguese who introduced grafting on mango trees to produce extraordinary varieties like Alphonso. The fruit was then introduced to the Konkan region in Maharashtra, Gujarat and parts of south India.

Alphonso mangoes, known locally as Hapoos are not sprouted from a seed but all of them are grown from grafts.

An Alphonso seed produces an ordinary mango, not an Alphonso.
