What is it about the Mango Seed

That gets kids so excited?
The cousins & us would compete with each other on "guthlee white karo competition"- who can suck on the seed so well that all traces of fibre and mango colour are gone! Those yummy mangoes from the village orchards!
Ojas & Tejas love sucking on the seed... so much so that I cheat to make them eat the pulp- place a bit of pulp on the edge of the seed and shove that edge into their mouth!!
I love the way they graduated from eating skinless bits to trying to imitate us as we eat - scrape the pulp from peices with the skin using our teeth...
I know some moms who don't give mangoes until the kids are 3 but I for one did not know you are not supposed to give and secondly it seemed such a shame to make them miss eating such yummy fruits.
All these years I would eat either the langda or the banganapalli (which is available in chennai).
But this time I decided to try even the others

1. Himsagar (from Calcutta)- I was amazed and pleasantly surprised at the nuances of taste that this mango offers- slightly green, milky, fleshy, skinny, sweet, aromatic, floral... a myriad of taste peaks
2. Imampasand- May be I picked the wrong ones but they were slightly flat, very fleshy, slightly creamy/milky, ripe - but overall nice
3. Totapari- very aromatic, skinny, juicy, slightly green, fibrous

and how do the favourites / now regular differ?
4. Malda/ Langda- prominent skin note, touch of green, fleshy, juicy
5. Banganapalli- juicy, fleshy, sweet, ripe... just can't go beyond- they tend to become over ripe estery very soon. That's what I hate about them
If you want to get the best of them- buy on the ECR road when you are driving to and fro between Chennai & Pondy!

Eating one of these innocent looking luscious heavens are equivalent to having a full meal in calories wise -:)
