Amélie mango popular in Mali

Originally from Asia, mangoes where introduced to Mali in 1890. Today the main producing areas are in Bougouni, Yanfolila, Sikasso, Koulikoro, Kati, Siby and Ségou.

Mali's mango production reaches 200,000 tons. One quarter is grafted bananas (Zill, Irwin, Amélie, Smith, Kent, Palmer, Keitt and Brooks) and 75% non-grafted (notably Sabre, Mangotine and green mango varieties). Mango farming is normally a family-run activity.

The Amélie mango is amongst the most popular variety. With it's green, slightly orange, skin, orange flesh and lack of fibres, it has a very high quality in flavour.
