Country of Origin – India
Average Weight – 350 Grams per fruit

Introduction

Mango is the fruit of the tropical tree Mangifera indica. Mangoes are regarded as some of the most consumed fruits in the world, originating in India approximately 5,000 years ago. Cultivated in South and Southeast Asia since ancient times, the mango is an oval-shaped fruit with uneven sides and a large seed or stone in the middle of its flesh. The skin of the fruit can vary from yellow-green to red.

History

Mangoes spread from India throughout Asia and eventually reached other parts of the world. Mango seeds were transported to the Middle East, East Africa, and South America starting around 300 or 400 A.D. Brazil saw the introduction of mangoes in the early 16th century, and during the 19th century, they made their way to Mexico from the Philippines and the West Indies.

Regions

Mango is produced in many countries worldwide, with India being the largest producer. Other significant mango-producing countries include China, Thailand, Mexico, Indonesia, Pakistan, Brazil, Egypt, Bangladesh, and Nigeria.

Flavors & Texture

Mangoes have a slightly pine/evergreen taste with floral, terpene-y, and sweet flavors. Texture-wise, different cultivars may vary. Some mangoes have a soft, pulpy texture like an overripe plum, while others are firmer like a cantaloupe or avocado. Some varieties may have a fibrous texture.

Preparation

To prepare a mango, use a sharp knife to slice it lengthways on either side of the stone. Score a lattice into the flesh, being careful not to cut through the skin. Gently push out the flesh, slice off the cubes, and discard the skin. Cut the remaining flesh from around the stone into cubes and enjoy. Mangoes can be used in fruit salads, smoothies, juicing, or even in cocktails.

Nutritional Value

Mangoes are low in calories and are a good source of vitamins, fiber, and carbohydrates.
