It's flesh is bright orange and there is no stringiness. You have to eat it to believe it.
When I heard that the US was not able to import these I was very excited. I searched high and low and was willing to pay a premium (I had heard of them going for as much as $15 a mango) just to get a taste, but I was unable to find them. I love mango and from what I hear, no mango I have ever tasted even comes close to the Alphonso. I can only imagine how much better it can get.

I love all kinds of fruit except melons. I hate melons.
