History

Also called “sumer bahist,” this variety of mango was originally made popular by Sher Shah Suri throughout the subcontinent. While commemorating his victory over Humayun at Chausa, he gave his favorite mango the name Chaunsa.

Description

The fruit has a golden-yellow color when it is soft, is almost fiberless, and has an aromatic, pleasant, sweet flavor. Commonly available varieties in India are greenish-yellow. The unique taste and richness in its flavor makes it a worldwide favorite. Overall, it is considered the best mango in terms of its rich aroma, sweet taste, juicy pulp and high nutritional value.

The season for Chaunsa in Pakistan normally starts at the beginning of June, and ends in the third week of August. It is heavily exported to the Middle East, Europe, and most recently to the United States.There are three known types of Chaunsa mangoes: Honey Chaunsa, Sweet Chaunsa, and White Chaunsa. White Chaunsa is considered best for export due to its longer shelf life.
