I have to say this is one of my favorite mangoes! A deliciously spicy flavor with no fiber makes this one of the best mango trees you can own. Here is a little more info...
'Neelum' is a popular South Indian dessert mango. The fruit weigh 9 to 12 oz., with the general shape of a fat cashew nut. They are smooth-skinned and bright yellow upon ripening and have no blush. The flesh is deep yellow or orange. There is no fiber and it has a rich, aromatic flavor perhaps a bit strong for the unaccustomed palate. 'Neelum' is best eaten out-of-hand or used as slices or cubes in mixed fruit salads, as the firm flesh holds its shape. 'Neelum' is a dwarf tree perfect for the home gardener, with a late fruiting season and excellent storage characteristics. Fruit should be harvested when mature green and ripened at room temperature off the tree.
