The Hapoos Mango


 It's the mango season and the Hapoos mango is here! Hapoos is the Indianised name of the delicious Alphonso mango. 

The 'Alphonso' mango is a named mango cultivar that originated in India. The variety is named after Afonso de Albuquerque, a Portuguese general and military expert who helped establish Portuguese colonies in India. The Portuguese introduced grafting on mango trees to produce varieties like Alphonso. The Alphonso is also one of the most expensive varieties of mango, and is grown mainly in western India.
