This variety of mango was made popular by Sher Shah Suri throughout the subcontinent. While commemorating his victory over Humayun at Chusa, he gave his favorite mango the name chaunsa. It is widely regarded as the best mango in terms of its sweet taste and juicy pulp. For this very reason its often regarded as "King of the mangoes".
The season for chaunsa in Pakistan normally starts at the beginning of June, and ends in the third week of August. Due to demand, it is heavily exported to the Middle East, Europe, and the USA.
