ORIGIN AND CHARACTERISTICS
Mangoes were first grown about six thousand years ago, and were a staple food for tropical peoples.
The shape varies, and they can be round, oval or kidney-shaped. Their smooth skin may be green, yellow, red or a combination. The flesh is yellow, sweet and juicy, with a heavenly fragrance.
Mango trees can live for over a century and reach a height of 40 metres.
