The King of Summer Fruits Is Here (And 3 Delicious Recipes!)

Picture this! It’s the beginning of summer vacation and you are at your grandparent's place. You hurry back from the scorching sun into the cool confines of the house. You’ve spent the morning running around with your cousins and now all of you sit around the dining table, impatiently, waiting for a glass of a cold refreshment grandma has kept in the fridge. And then, the golden surprise arrives.

Kept in the center of the table is a plate filled with golden-yellow, juicy and ripe mangoes, neatly cut. All hands reach in at once to pick their favourite slice. Isn’t this a familiar memory? As Indians, our childhoods are irrevocably linked with the Mighty Mango!

And the one that reigns supreme, is the ever popular variant also known as the King of Mangoes, Alphonso.


So what makes Alphonso so special? Every alphonso you bite into has a signature scent and deep orange flesh that is non-fibrous, sweet and pulpy. Eating an Alphonso indeed is a luxury, and the best amongst alphonsos hail from Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg and Devgad in Maharashtra.  

If you’re looking for the perfect Aphonso, your search ends here! At Living Food, we source the best Ratnagiri Alphonso Mangoes, straight from the finest farms in Maharashtra. We collaborate with small, genuine farms across geographies to create a system that respects the growers, their skill, and above all, the quality of the produce. 



The Alphonso Mangoes we provide are not chemically ripened or plucked too soon. When your order reaches you, the mangoes will be ready to eat in a day or two! And with the fruit being naturally ripened and shipped right to your doorstep, you can enjoy the best, chemical free mangoes in the country, all with a single click.
