Yes, the best mangoes or Aam (Hindi) come from India with over 1000 varieties grown all over. This is a summer fruit unlike apple, and it ripens in the heat to compliment the Indian summer. Mangoes are grown in many countries including China and Mexico, but the taste and texture vary drastically. The fruit with a peel is consumed directly after cutting into cubes or slices or as the juice is extracted by plain squeezing. The juice is of a thicker consistency and is more like a puree. If you see a countenance smothered with orange-yellow pulp, the fruit is not hard to guess.
All mangoes are not the same, and the one's meant as juicy delights are not meant to be sliced. While most of these fruits are consumed after they have ripened, some are eaten raw or pickled for extended seasons. They are sliced for salads, and or shredded for kachumber which is a spicy and tangy side dish like a pickle, very popular in India.
Ripe or raw, this heavenly fruit will open up Pandora's box, if you are interested in Indian cuisine. Be it lunch or dinner mangoes, are a must as juice or slices, and yes in the ubiquitous North Indian Lassi. Fruit is very much part of meals as an accompaniment or dessert.
