Mangga is the Tagalog word for ‘mango.’
Green Pico Mangoes (Hilaw na Pikong Mangga)
Ripe Pico Mangoes (Hinog na Pikong Mangga)
Other mango varieties in the Philippines are Kalabaw (Carabao), Katchamita (Indian) and Pahutan (Mangifera altissima). The manggang kalabaw is by far the most popular.
The Pico mango is popular in Mexico, where it is called, “Manila.” (No, not “Manila mango,” just “Manila.”)
There’s another kind of mango I remember from way back. It’s the smallest kind, called, “Pajo.” (Paho.) It may have been where the place near Manila called “Maypajo” got its name.
The tiny Pajo is supposed to be the tastiest kind of mango when ripe. I’ve never tasted a ripe one because it’s more popularly eaten when green and pickled (buro), to accompany fried fish and rice.
