The 'Shan-e-Khuda' mango (translated "God's magnificence") is a late-season mango cultivar grown in Pakistan, specifically the Multan and Rahim Yar Khan districts.[1]

Description[edit]

The fruit is sweet and ripens in October and November, after most varieties have finished.

The thick skin of Shan-e-Khuda gives it a long shelf life and high export value. It can be found in four colors – red, purple, green, and yellow. It is sometimes called 'Sun Session' because the more sun it receives, the more colors are produced during its ripening season.[1]
