The 'Brahm Kai Meu' mango (known locally as 'Pram Kai Mea', or 'Phram Khai Mia') is a named mango cultivar of Thai origin.[1] Although it is relatively new in Florida, it appears to be doing very well so far, in terms of growth and yield.

Loosely translated, the name (from Thai: พราหมณ์ขายเมีย, RTGSPhram Khai Mia) means that this mango is so good that even a Brahmin would trade his own wife for a Brahm Kai Meu mango.

Description[edit]

In Thailand, Brahm Kai Meu mango is eaten also in its green state. When ripe, Brahm Kai Meu stays relatively green with hardly any change in color.[2]

This mango is sweet and fibreless.
