Description

Spelled Dusheri, this mango is from northern India. It is considered one of the best of the north Indian mangos and has a unique citrus-type flavor.  The citrus flavor is more pronounced and present in its dependent, Mallika.  
It has an oblong shape and is mostly green at maturity but sometimes turning yellow.  The flesh is deep orange.  The tree is of medium size and is a regular and heavy bearer.

In the 18th century, the Dasheri mango first appeared in the gardens of Nawab of Lucknow. Since then numbers of Dasheri plants have been produced and planted throughout India. People from village Dasheri near Kakori, Uttar Pradesh have the mother plant of Dasheri mango which gave this variety of mango same name. This mother plant belonged to the orchards of Late Mohammad Ansar Zaidi. This mother plant is said to be around 200 years old. It bears fruit every alternate year. Though the fruit is of small size as compared to it's grafted counterparts but it's flavor and smell are unmatched. The plant is being well taken care of by Mr.Zaidi's decendents. It is often referred to as "The Mother Dasehri".
