India is very much famous for its sweetness, richness, and uniqueness of flavor when it comes to the tropical fruit. Over the summer, several varieties of mangoes ripen across different parts of India. The Alphonso mango is widely considered the most popular for its sweet-smelling and sugary taste, and then the Badami with its buttery flavor.
