Mango Madness!!!!

In an effort to eat more fruit and to try local cuisine, I have been trying to try at least one of all the types of mangoes I can find in Bombay. Here everyone loves mangoes and has a favorite mango type (they come in different shapes, sizes, and tastes) and as mango season begins to wind down, I am trying to pick my favorite mango.
Here are three types of mangoes I have tried and liked:

Totapuri:
They are sweet and tart, light yellow in color on the inside and smooth in texture. On the outside they are multi-colored yellow, orange, red and green.

Alfonso (also spelled Alphonso):Alfonso's are the sweetest mangoes, they are yellow on the outside and a darker orange inside. They are so sweet that when I eat one all by myself my teeth hurt but they are good. (sorry about the pictures, I ate this Alfonso at around 7:00pm and it was dark out, and my apartment lights are not good for photos).

Badami:

Badami mangoes are one of my favorite, they are sweet, but not as sweet as the Alfonso mango. They are yellow on the inside and smooth, not stringy.
