NeelKiran Mango
« on: September 12, 2016, 06:09:32 PM »
A friend from this forum sent me a small NeelKiran Mango and I thought it was delicious. NeelKiran is the cross between an Alphonso and a Neelam. It had much firmer flesh than both Neelam and Alphonso and it had a Brix of 20%. It has more of an Alphonso influence for its flavor with a nice Indian resin flavor. I cut one side of the fruit and noticed that it did not have any spongy tissue but then I cut the other half and there was minor spongy tissue. I like NeelKiran a lot more than Alphonso but I still prefer Kesar more than any other Indian Mango(Indian resin flavor).

Nice. How was the seed to flesh ratio?

It was medium. Medium sized seed relative to the size of the mango.

I'm surprised it has spongy tissue, given that all websites describing it indicate it is spongy tissue free, must be a case of misleading release hype. Thanks for the review!

Eric
it's too early to tell we are still evaluating this variety.Indian mangos in general preform well in our climate.

I'm growing Neelkiran ( full name 'Arka Neelkiran') . Waiting to see how it does here in south Florida. Should be large enough to hold fruit in 2 seasons.

In other half there is no spongy tissue. Spongy tissue is in white, faint yellow colour. It looks completely orange. May be over ripe.
