The bright yellow fruit are a flattened oblong shape, with a rounded base and an irregular, non-waxy skin, and weigh from 10 to 18 oz. When properly ripened, the pasty, but completely fiber-free flesh is a deep orange, with an intensely sweet, rich and highly aromatic flavor with hints of citrus and melon.
Mallika are usually grown in tropical to subtropical climates. However, if grown in colder temperatures, the Malika has a higher chance of showing signs of a disease called malformation. Malformation is most prevalent in species of mango that are grown between a range of temperatures of 10-15 degrees Celsius.
