Alphonso's Portuguese Connection

by SaleBhai Team - 29-May-2017 - #AamBaat

What are the things that we would have missed if Portugal didn't exist?

 

The magical dribbling of Luis Figo, the unbelievable goals of Cristiano Ronaldo, and the heavenly aroma and sweet taste of Alphonso mango are some of the examples.

 

Confused?

 

Don't bother checking online, you know it correct - Alphonso is produced exclusively in India. Then why do we need to thank Portugal for it?

A Portuguese general named, Afonso de Albuquerque, is a classic example of a person who can both be hated and loved by us at the same time.

Hated because he helped the Portuguese army to establish their colony in India and loved because he introduced Alphonso mango to our country.

No wonder, they decided to name this luxury fruit after this general.

Fascinating, isn't it? Check out authentic Alphonso from the farms of Ratnagiri on https://www.salebhai.com/aamrai-ratnagiri
