Cultivar'Fazli'

The 'Fazli' mango is a mango cultivar from the eastern regions of the Indian subcontinent, primarily grown in India (specifically, Indian states of West Bengal and Bihar) and Bangladesh.[1] It is a late maturing fruit, available after other varieties. Fazlis are commonly used in jams and pickles in the cuisine of the Indian subcontinent. Each mango can be quite large, going up to a kilo. The Malda district area of West Bengal, is the major producers of fazli.[2][3][4] An important commercial variety, it is increasingly being exported.[1]

In 2009, India has filed a Geographical Indication for the name Fazli, but this is likely to be shared with Bangladesh.[5] There is a dispute over this issue regarding registration to the WTO manual by India.[6][7]
