To produce its purée, Maison Ponthier has selected the prestigious Alphonso mango from Ratnagiri. Mangoes from this region are known for being among the best in the world and the Alphonso is the most popular among dozens of other varieties. The coastal region of Ratnagiri guarantees an excellent quality of fruit thanks to a high level of humidity and soil that is both acidic and rocky. At the Maison Ponthier partner plantations, the trees are abundantly irrigated as soon as the fruit reaches the size of a grape, with more than 50 litres of water per day and per tree. Strict control of the mangoes’ Brix level allows for harvest at full ripeness. Small in size and highly concentrated in sugar and pigment, they are perfectly flavoured, fleshy and non-fibrous.
