Summary
Mangos are in-season all year long making it a fruit that can be celebrated every day, not just today!

Mango is one of the most consumed fruits worldwide. It is more than simply a fruit; in many nations around the world, it is an integral component of culture and history. Mangoes were first cultivated in India more than 5000 years ago.

Mango is a fruit that belongs to the cashew family and has the scientific name Mangifera Indica (Anacardiaceae). 

The name "mango" is likely derived from the Malayam word "manna," which the Portuguese adopted when they arrived in Kerala in 1498 to trade in spices. The tree was not introduced into the Western Hemisphere until around 1700 due to the difficulty of transporting the seeds, and after being planted in Brazil, it reached the West Indies in approximately 1740.
