Title: Silly question - how is "baneshan" pronounced?
Post by: ppk on September 11, 2021, 11:49:19 AM
Is baneshan (in Alampur Baneshan) pronounced BA-ney-shaan or ba-NEY-shaan or BAAN-shaan or some other way?

Just curious.

Are you sure it is Alampur baneshan, or it's Himam pasand? I have not seen a real AB in picture or video. Have a pic of your tree?

Would that change the pronunciation?

The plant on the right is Alampur Baneshan/Imam Pasand - that's what's on the label. If you magnify the image you can even see it.

Any thoughts on the pronounciation?

If the word is derived from Farsi language, then it has two parts - be and neshan. 'Neshan' or 'nishan' pronounced as in the car nissan, means blemish or trace or origins and 'be' pronounced like be in word better. means without. So could it be a mango without blemish or without trace or origins. However google says it is named after a 'zamidar' an aristocrat or a land-owner of those days in India.

It seems to look the  same as my Iman Pasand. Does the label say Alampur Baneshan/Imam Pasand? This means the grower also not too sure which one. We need to demystify what is Alampur Baneshan mango.

Thank you, Satya. I appreciate it.

Maybe "bey-ni-SHAN"?
