World’s Sweetest Fruit


What can be considered as the world’s sweetest mango is produced in the island province of Guimaras. While other countries have different varieties of the tropical mango (Mangifera indica), none of them tastes like the superbly delicious Guimaras mango, which is a variety of the popular Carabao Mango (Manginera indica).

In 1995, the Guinness Book of World records listed the Carabao Mango as the sweetest fruit in the world. In the Philippines, mango ranks third among fruit crops in production, next to banana and pineapple. The country supplies mangoes to Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and recently the United States. In 1995, the Philippines produced 432,322 metric tons of mangoes, with an average production of 6.35 metric tons per hectare and 250 kilograms per tree from a total production area of 68,056 hectares.

  8. Dates are undoubtedly the sweetest fruits with their high sugar content.Deglet noor dates has a sugar content as high as 63.3%.This is followed by seedless raisins(59%),dried sulfured apple(57%),dried apricots(53%),dried figs(47%).Fleshy or dry dates are always high in sugar content much more than any fresh fruit and are sweetest of all fruits.Guiness book of records recognises Guimara mangos of Philippines as sweetest fruit in terms of taste though sugar content of mangos is less than 20%.
