Mangoes of the Philippines

Mangga is the Tagalog word for 'mango.'

The most common variety of mango in the Philippines is what Americans refer to as champagne mango. It's been called Manila mango, Ataulfo mango (named after its Mexican grower) and Honey mango.  Filipinos call it manggang kalabaw (carabao mango) while the Philippine government refers to it as 'Manila Super Mango' and is reputedly in the Guinness Book of World Records as the sweetest in the world.
