The 'Mallika' mango is the result of the hybridization of the Indian mango varieties Neelum and Dasheri.[1] The variety was introduced by Dr. Anand Singh. When grafted, the tree will remain a manageable size and is appropriate for dooryard growing. Fruit is normally ready to harvest from June to July.[2]

Fruit[edit]

Mallika produces high quality, fiberless orange fruit. The fruit has prominent citrus, melon and honey notes and is exceptionally sweet. The cultivar met a positive reception at the Fairchild Botanic Gardens International Mango Festival.[2]
