About the Mango

Mangoes are among the most prevalent fruits in the world. Having been first grown in India, they still revere the mango as a gesture of friendship.

The mango tree grows up to 65 ft. tall and produces an expansive canopy of leaves, which is most likely why it was Buddha’s choice spot for both shade and meditation. The oldest mango tree is said to be approximately three hundred years old and still produces fruit. When a mango sapling is first planted, it is quite fragile and must be protected from cold temperatures and frost. However, once the tree is between two and four years old, it becomes heartier.

The actual mango fruit ranges in size from around 8 ounces to 24 ounces and between 2 inches and 9 inches long. It is shaped like a kidney and in the center is a large stone pit. While mangoes that are not fully ripened are fine for cooking or pickling, it should not be eaten fresh during this stage, as it tends to cause mouth irritation.

Mangoes are high in calcium and vitamins, providing support to several bodily functions and organs. The fruit, native to India is still highly regarded, not to mention it worldwide popularity.
