Mango morphotypes

Mangos. From sweet to tart, aromatic and perfumed. 
The distinction between a banana and a plantain is largely arbitrary - there's a wide diversity of seedless edible bananas, both things intended for cooking or eating plain. Likewise, there are a wide diversity of mangos. In Houston, we are lucky to get at least two varieties - the standard large red mango, and the smaller ataulfo (or champagne) mango. But in Southeast Asia, the diversity can be dizzying. Here, a small portrait of the morphotypes available.
