What's special about Chorao Mancurad Mango?

Chorao, a picturesque riverine island at the mouth of the Mandovi, was once the refuge of Portuguese Fidalgos(noblemen). For centuries the unique, protected ecosystem on this island has provided an ideal environment for Mancurad mangoes to grow and flourish. These heirloom varieties have been maintained with the use of natural(non-industrial) cultivation techniques and are still grown in mixed orchards where many trees are several decades old.
