My 3 kg. Mango
« on: October 25, 2018, 10:35:56 PM »
This is the Malaysian 'King' mango.  Most of the fruits weigh slightly more than 2 kilos.  However, this one hit the 3 kg. mark.  Nice flavor and no fiber at all.  Enjoy viewing.

How big is the seed in a mango like this? Looks great!

Yes, it is called 'King' mango and sometimes it is called 'S' mango because of its shape when small.  The seed is very thin and long.

The seed looks like Lancetilla which is a Honduran big mango. Could Lancetilla became King in Malaysia?
