Alphonso Mango Disclaimer

Alphonso Mango is a highly celebrated fruit- “The King of Fruit.

Alphonso, the most delicious variety of mango (Mangifera Indica) is known for its excellent texture, taste, and richness in vitamins and minerals. Despite its great flavor and taste, this King is not perfect and comes with some internal pulp defect known as Spongy Tissue.

Spongy Tissue

Alphonso has incidents of a physiological disorder known as “Spongy Tissue” causing the internal breakdown of the pulp. It is characterized by unripe, acidic, pale yellow/white corky tissue with or without air pockets associated with an unacceptable off-flavor in a certain region of the mesocarp (pulp) adjacent to the endocarp (stone). Fruits affected by this disorder do not show any external symptoms and the malady is detected only after cutting the fruits open. Check spongy tissue pictures here.

Can you eat mango with spongy tissue?

A mango with white/yellow stuff inside should still be safe to eat but will probably be less flavorful.

The rest of the fruit, however, can still be perfectly fine and still certainly edible.
