Haden Mangoes

In reading about this variety of mango, I found out on the Importer's website, that the Haden Mango could be considered the King of Mangoes. I disagree, and think that the Ataulfo, which they also import, has a superior taste. The Haden is much larger than the Ataulfo, and has a reddish and yellow skin. The flesh is orange, it tastes quite sweet, and it is quite juicy. There is, however, a fair amount of fibre. In the store where I purchased it, it was labelled Apple Mango, though I don't get the reference, it does not resemble or smell or taste in any way like an apple.
