Unripe Alampur Beneshan mangoes
The 'Alampur Beneshan' mango, sometimes spelled Banishan, is a named mango cultivar that originates from India. In southern India, it is sometimes known as Seeri. It differs from, but is related ancestrally to, the high-volume commercial cultivar Banganapalli. However, this is a much older and prized cultivar.
The fruit is medium-sized with thin skin, ranging in color from green to yellow. The flesh of the ripe fruit is fiberless, ranging in color from yellow to golden-yellow to orange-yellow. Many Indian strains stay green even on ripening, though a slight yellowing or blush is often noted near the stalk. The pores in the skin have a distinct whitish coloration. There is no distinct bouquet from the ripe fruit, but the flesh has a deep, slightly tart flavor with slight accents of cinnamon, pepper, jackfruit and other Indian mango cultivars like Alphonso.
