The Nam Doc Mai mango variety originated in Thailand and was introduced to Reunion Island a decade ago. It’s elongated ‘’S’’ form and pale green color are characteristics of the variety. When ripening, its creamy color gradually turns to soft pink yellow.
Its pulp is slightly honey-sweet, melting and fragrant with a fairly harsh taste close to the skin. Other appreciated features of this variety are its flat seed and absence of fibers.
Vitamin A, B and C as well as potassium and iron are present in important quantities in this fruit. Mangoes are also a significant source of beta carotene.
