How to identify original alphanso

Smell
The fragrance of real Devgad and Ratnagiri Alphonso and Hapuz mango is the key. An original Alphonso mango will have a sweet natural aroma. And we are talking about real fragrance, one mango is enough to fill your house with its fragrance. However, there are times when vendors use chemicals to ripen the mangoes but the aroma will not be enough.

Shape
The best Alphonso from the mango groves of Devgad and Ratnagiri are usually oval in shape and do not become narrower from below.

Colour
The real Alphonso or Hapuz will have gradients of yellow and green on it. It will not be completely yellow like the Badami mangoes uniform yellow is not how Alphonso mangoes' colour should be.

Texture
Real Alphonso or Hapoos mangoes that ripe on the trees are softer than the ones that are artificially ripened. Sometimes the artificially ripened ones may look perfectly yellow from the top but may be hard to touch. more

We have to go to good dependable vendor ,pay reasonable price and take the delivery of material. In most of the cases,trust factor is important.As others has suggested ,keep one , two or three trusted vendors long term/ continuously and buy the fruits.Many times I get replacement of the fruit spoiled / bad fruit.But I pay him some amount so that he will not have any loss . more  
Good of you to give us some indications about the real Devgad/Ratnagiri Hapus. One more indication is that the Devagad/Ratnagiri mangoes have a very thin skin compared to others.

But at the time you purchase a box/crate of Mangoes it is difficult to judge the aroma or the shape because it is subjective.


Anyway one can use your guidelines while buying mangoes. more  
why dont you upload any pics to know how original alphanso looks like...because people are selling duplicate mangos in the name of alphanso more  
I CANNOT ALL THE PRECAUTIONS FOR BUYING DIFFERENT FRUITS. I BUY FROM A VENDOR ON A REGULAR BASIS WITH THE HOPE THAT SOMETIMES I MAY GET GOOD STUFF, GOD WILLING. IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD THERE IS SMALL ROOM WITH FACILITIES FOR ARTIFICIAL RIPENING AND HAS BEEN GOING ON UNCHECKED FOR YEARS . SIMILAR CHEATING HAPPENS IN VEGETABLES, GRAINS AND EVERY PURCHASE I MAKE SO I HAVE RESIGNED TO IT. I DO NOT HAVE TIME AND ENERGY TO SPEND ON ALL THESE ON A DAILY BASIS. more  
Perceptional dimensions seems good but needs strong base of earlier experience. Please update any physical tests like water floating test or any other similar physical kind. more
