Chaunsa, also known as chausa, is a mango cultivar indigenous to South Asia. It is grown mainly in Pakistan and some parts of North India; both countries export significant quantities of the fruit. Chaunsa mangoes are considered to be the best mangos in the world. Pakistani mangoes are exported primarily to the Western hemisphere.
History of Chaunsa Mango Origin
The chaunsa variety of mango was made popular by the Indian invader Sher Shah Suri while commemorating his victory over Humayun at Chausa, Bihar. Suri ultimately named his favorite mango “chaunsa” to honor his victory. The mango was also known as the Ghazipuriya mango due to its early large-scale cultivation in Ghazipur.
Characteristics of Chaunsa Mango
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 Pakistan are greenish-yellow. The unique taste and richness in its flavor makes it a worldwide favorite. Some consider it the best mango in terms of its rich aroma, sweet taste, juicy pulp and high nutritional value. Chaunsas have higher vitamin C content than other mango cultivars.
