  • Mangoes belong to the genus Mangifera, consisting of numerous species of tropical fruiting trees in the flowering plant family Anacardiaceae.
  • Cultivated in many tropical regions and distributed widely in the world, mango is one of the most popularly exploited fruits for food, juice, flavor, fragrance and color.
  • Its leaves are ritually used as floral decorations at weddings and religious ceremonies.
  • Mango trees  reach 35-40 m in height, with a crown radius of 10 m. The leaves are evergreen, alternate, simple, 15-35 cm long and 6-16 cm broad; when the leaves are young they are orange-pink, rapidly changing to a dark glossy red, then dark green as they mature.
  • It is easily cultivated and there are now more than 1,000 cultivars, ranging from the turpentine mango to the huevos de toro .
  • Mango can be grown under both tropical and sub-tropical climate from sea level to 1400 m altitude, provided there is no high humidity, rain or frost during the flowering period.
  • Places with good rainfall and dry summer are ideal for mango cultivation.
  •  It is better to avoid areas with winds and cyclones which may cause flower and fruit shedding and breaking of branches.


  • Mangoes are widely used in chutney, which in the West is often very sweet, but in the Indian subcontinent is usually sharpened with hot chilis or limes.
  • A more traditional Indian drink is mango lassi, which is similar, but uses a mixture of yogurt and milk as the base, and is sometimes flavoured with salt or cardamom.

  • Mango is also used to make juices, both in ripe and unripe form. Pieces of fruit can be mashed and used in ice cream; they can be substituted for peaches in a peach (now mango) pie; or put in a blender with milk, a little sugar, and crushed ice for a refreshing beverage.
  • Fresh mangoes and mango pulp are the important items of agri-exports from India.
  •  India's main export destinations for mango are UAE, Kuwait and other Middle East countries with a limited quantity being shipped to European market.
  • Although, India is the largest mango producing country, accounting about 60% of world production, the export of fresh fruit is limited to Alphonso and Dashehari varieties.
