Alampur Benishan, often incorrectly spelt as Baneshan, is a mango cultivar that originates from India. The mango is a medium-sized fruit, with its appearances ranging from green to yellow, thin skin and fiberless. The flesh of the ripe fruit ranges in colour from yellow to golden-yellow to orange-yellow. Most Indian strains stay green even on ripening, though a slight yellowing or blush is often noted near the stalk. The pores in the skin have a distinct whitish coloration. It differs from, but is related ancestrally to, the high-volume commercial cultivar Banganapalli. There is no distinct bouquet from the ripe fruit, but the flesh has a deep, slightly tart flavour with slight accents of cinnamon, pepper, jackfruit and other Indian mango cultivars like Alphonso. However, this is a much older and prized cultivar and sometimes goes by the name Seeri in Southern India.
