Indian consumers can now enjoy mangoes even during the October-December period, when these juicy fruits aren’t usually available locally. Malawi mangoes, which taste almost like Alphonso mangoes, will be imported from the African Country starting this week to be sold here, said traders.
The variety of mangoes that will be imported will be 99% similar in taste to Indian Alphonso mangoes, sources at Malawi Mangoes said. Malawi Mangoes is a company promoted by African and British nationals and involved in the production and processing of bananas, pineapple and mangoes.
Traders had attempted to import mangoes from Malawi last year as well, but that didn’t happen in the absence of phytosanitary approvals. “Now, the two countries have signed a treaty to permit mango imports,” said Khaire.
