The Benefits Of Mango

Origin And General Information


Latin Name : Mangifera Indica

Mango is the national fruit of India, Pakistan and the Philippines.

The Mango tree is the national tree of Bangladesh.

Mango is called 'Aam' in India.

Mango is also known as the 'King Of Fruits'.

Mango tree is a native to India for over 4000 years and it spread the world over from here. Mango is a widely cultivated fruit in tropical and subtropical regions. The fruit is exported worldwide.

The mango tree grows to a height of about 50 to 60 feet and the branches spread wide. A perennial tree, some have been found to be fruiting even after 300 years.

The ripe mango fruit is available several colours like yellow, orange, yellow and red, green, green and red, purple green etc. The fruit is sweet with various combinations of sweet to sour tastes. The ripe mango gives off a distinct sweet aroma and you can find people sniffing the fruit, before buying mangoes.

India is the biggest producer of mango. Most of it is locally consumed though some of the popular varieties like the 'Alphonso' called 'Hapoos' in India is widely exported. Alphonso is the highest rated mango in quality and the most expensive mango that is available in India.

Some mangoes have hairy, fibrous seeds but most are free of fibre. The fibrous ones are ones commonly sucked and consumed since cutting them is difficult.

Mango skins of some mangoes varieties like 'Langda' etc and the raw mango can cause itching, burning and biting and inflammation of the skin around the mouth due to the anacardic acid content in them. The sap of some mangoes causes these symptoms too because of the caustic nature of the sap.

Mangoes. A very important staple in Southeast Asia. My wife is from Cambodia and her parents own a mango farm there. Mangoes are only ripe in Cambodia for about a month so most of the recipes require Green mangoes (unripened). I just read your Hub on Papayas. In Cambodia the papaya are often used in recipes while they are green and unripened as well. Feel free to check out my recipe for Green Papaya Salad: http://hubpages.com/food/How-To-Make-Healthy-Green...

As always, voted up and useful!

J.S, thanks for the read. In India, mangoes are available from start of the summer season till the onset of the monsoon, a good 4 months in a year, different varieties ripening at different times. It starts off with the unripe green mangoes we make pickles, chutneys, etc with.

Thanks for your input. I'll definitely check out this recipe.

I am including a link to this wonderful recipe in my just published hub on benefits of papaya.

Thanks for all the appreciation and votes.

That is very interesting Rajan! You have a great harvest season of mangoes where you are. Where I live in the US I don't have monsoon season but we do have winter and snow. In my wife's native Cambodia, they have only heat and little water. We have a very short growing season in Northern New England. I appreciate the link to my Salad Recipe on your Hub: http://hubpages.com/health/Benefits-Of-Papaya...

Thank you Rajan Jolly!

J.S, Asian countries as such or in fact the tropical regions in Asia, have a longer fruiting season for mango.

Still as mangoes are exported world wide and to the US too, I think it should not be too difficult to get them. Though only the creme de la creme varieties are usually exported.

It's been a fruitful interaction with you. I learned a lot.

Thanks.
