For the people with limited space, this thread is useful.
I am planning to start poll about top 3 mangoes tastewise.
If any other variety to be included feel free to reply.
It looks like you need to include CeciLove!  I had a Providence tree that produced mangos that tasted and looked like Kent on steroids.  Exceptional fruit, but supposedly too disease-prone, like Kent.  I had no problems, but the tree was removed by new owners right after it first started producing.

It would be easier for me to make a top Mango in each flavor profile list than a top Mango of all time, everyone has different tastes. Some people hate the resin-y strong flavored ones and some love it.

Yes will add Ceci love. Also alampur baneshan is quite popular.

I agree. There are distinctly different flavor groups/profiles, which may as well be different fruits entirely (imo). Rank the classic, spicy Indian, Thai, citrus, peachy, guava-esque, sugar bombs, sweet n sour, durian, parsnip,. etc.; separately. While many mangoes cross groups, a better way to classify mango quality. Let's stop solely comparing apple mangoes to orange mangoes.

But if it's Top 3, they would definitely cross categories, and it would be an interesting poll.  My 2-cents.
