We can’t forget Himsagars when counting the best types of mangoes. They’re exceptionally sweet and have green skin. They come from Malda, Murshidabad, Nadia, and Hooghly districts of West Bengal. 

    6. Banganapalli (बंगनपल्ली)

      You also need to try Neelam mangoes. They are more prominent in the South and are mainly found in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Karnataka. Neelams are a late-season variety and have golden yellow/red skin when ripe. 

      8. Badami (बादामी)

      Badami mangoes are only grown in Karnataka and are also called Karnataka’s Alphonso because they’re similar in taste and texture to Alphonsoes. You can relish them fresh, sliced into salads, or incorporated into juices, jams, and chutneys. 

      9. Chausa (चौसा)

      Types of Mangoes in India 9

      The Chausa mangoes, sometimes also called Chaunsa, are known for their rich sweetness and yellow color. They are grown in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh and are bigger than most other mangoes. 

      10. Totapuri (तोतापुरी)


      Totapuri Mangoes are a bit tangy and have many common names like Ginimoothi, Kallamai, Ottu, and Sandersha. The name means “parrot’s beak,”–which is a nod to their pointy shape. These mangoes are rich in Vitamins A and C. 

        11. Mallika (मल्लिका)

        Types of Mangoes in India 11

        Mallika mangoes are hybrids of the Neelam and Dussheri types of mangoes and have hints of honey, lemon, and melon taste. They are oblong and are ready for harvest in late June-July. 

        12. Raspuri (रसपुरी)

        Raspuri mango types are a bit smaller in size, but they make up for their sweetness. They are grown in Karnataka–the areas around Bengaluru, Ramanagara, Kolar, Chikkaballapur, and Tumakuru.

        13. Mankurad (मनकुराड)

        Mankurads are mainly found in Goa and have a long shelf life. They have a sweet flavor and flat seeds, so there’s plenty of flesh inside them.
