Mango is a sweet and juicy tropical fruit that is native to South Asia but is now grown in many parts of the world. It is a member of the Anacardiaceae family, which also includes cashews and pistachios. The mango fruit has a distinctive oval shape, with a reddish-yellow skin that is sometimes tinged with green or purple. The flesh is juicy and sweet, with a bright yellow-orange color and a fibrous texture.
Mangoes are a good source of vitamins A and C, as well as dietary fiber and antioxidants. They can be eaten fresh or used in a variety of dishes, including smoothies, desserts, and savory dishes like chutneys and salsas. Mangoes are also commonly used in traditional medicine for their potential health benefits, such as reducing inflammation and improving digestion.
