Alphonso Mangoes in Dallas

Hey Everyone,

Now that US has removed the restriction of importing Mangoes from India and the batches have been arriving into the country for the past few weeks, I am wondering if anyone has seen any Alphonso Mangoes in any grocery or Indian stores in Dallas. Thanks in advance.

  1. Yeah I'd be really interested in the same.

    Please post any locations if you've seen desi mangoes in Dallas - Fort Worth area.

    1. The Plano Central Market has them. I assume the other locations would have them also.

      1. Hapoos!!

        I bought an Alphonso Mango from the Dallas Central Market. WOW - that may have been the wettest, sloppiest, sweetest thing I have stuck in mouth for a while. I'm salivating just thinking about it.

        I'm no expert, but the one I purchased was quite soft to the touch - it almost felt overripe. The flesh was golden colored and while I'd love to be able to give a description like this: "it exhibited notes of Salman Rushdie's head sweat , overripened Alaskan butterscotch and the musk of an adolescent female tapir", all I can tell you is that it was much sweeter than the other mangos I remember eating.
