The Jill Pasanth mango also known as the Ice Cream mango from India - so named because one scoops the flesh off the mango once halved. When properly chilled, the consistency of the flesh is similar to that of eating mango ice cream - only that it is pure fruit!
The season comes around once a year around early part of June. These mangoes are air flown from India after they are harvested from the southern part of India. According to leaflet in the box, these mangoes are left on the trees without protection from the elements and harvested when they mature to the right size and ready for export. Unlike the varietals from Thailand, these mangoes are round shaped instead of oval.
