The first one that popped into my head was Ambika. It is late season in Florida. The one time I tried it I really liked it

Ambika is a late season mango.
Any US cultivar can be suggested.

My favorite early-season is Dwarf Hawaii
Precocious orange rich flavor but it is anthracnose prone. I'm not familiar with the commercial varieties

Translating USA seasons with the monsoon climate in India might be difficult. What part of India, there are several climate zones to deal with? You might consider looking at locally adapted varieties. Out of the more common ones, which ones fit
 closest to your criteria?

This doesn't fit any of his criteria but I would be curious to see how Valencia Pride would do in their Monsoon climate. When I think of a low maintenance Hardy excellent producing tree Valencia Pride comes to mind. Hello John 15 what say you :)

Valencia pride also late variety. Here mansoon will damage late varieties.
And I have amrapali and Rapoza planted.
Alphanso is for early-mid season.
Is Angie an excellent tasting variety?

I have Glenn and the flavor is great when not picked too early.  It's also disease resistant and consistent producer.

Ah Ping seems to fit your criteria. I was actually looking at Mapulehu that I remember as being red colored. Excellent very much enjoyed it thank you Alex.
Now that I've taken a close look at Ah Ping I may consider grafting it onto my honey kiss

Alison red is a dwarf tree and bears early, but the fruit are small. Itís polyembrionic and is one of the more disease resistant trees in my yard (similar to ndm).
