Mangifera indica L.

Another variety of mango originally from Florida, U.S., where it began to be cultivated for commercial use. Available year-round in markets and fairs in Brazil, the skin can vary from purple to red as it ripens. The golden yellow pulp barely has any fibers – reason why it is a favorite for fresh consumption, and to use in desserts and salads. For its sweetness, is also used to prepare juices, smoothies, ice creams and mousses. Like other mango varieties, it can be combined with cachaça to make caipirinhas, as well as chutneys and sweet-and- sour salsas and sauces.
