This mango is from India, and should not be confused with “Baneshan” (which is also known as Banganpalli). It is a distinct variety, developing very little skin color (often remaining green even when ripe), and has a firm light colored, almost white flesh that is very sweet with strong resin and spice flavors, with a distinctive perfumey aroma. The seed is monoembryonic.
Alampur Baneshan is a delicious mango, and the tree is of low vigor and quite manageable.
Unfortunately, it is a disappointing producer and in Florida has the unfortunate distinction of losing many of its fruit on the tree to cracking. We suspect that the mango we know as ‘Alampur Baneshan’ in the United States is synonymous with what is also called ‘Iman Passand’ here, as the fruit and foliage appear identical.
Flavor: Indian/West Indian
