Malgova is one of the original mango varieties and is very popular in the Tamilnadu, Kerala, some regions of Andhra and Karnataka states of India.

This variety is the base for many of the newer varieties and is extremely fragrant and sweet. It has been losing market share lately because of its lower shelf life, but in terms of it mango-ness there is none other quite like it.

The fruit is extremely sensitive and grows between mid May and mid June in India.
