Mangoes have been around for over 4000 years. It is believed that Mango has originated in India. India grows several varieties of Mango but the GIR GI tag Original Kesar Mango belongs to the GIR region of the Gujarat State of India.
Mangoes are used to make murabba (fruit preserves), murabba (a sweet, grated mango delicacy), amchur (dried and powdered unripe mango), and pickles, including a spicy mustard-oil pickle and alcohol. Ripe mangoes are often cut into thin layers, desiccated, folded, and then cut. These bars are similar to dried guava fruit bars available in some countries. The fruit is also added to cereal products such as muesli and oat granola. Mangoes are often prepared charred in Hawaii.
Ripeness & Quality: Kesar is ready to eat when the fruit is tender with an overall softness coming through the thin peel. Avoid fruit with excessively soft patches or bruised or compressed areas. A little wrinkling of the skin is of no concern and often means the fruit is at peak eating quality
