The Secret Of...MANGO

Mango (English)
Aam (Hindi)
Maam Pazham (Tamil)

King of the Fruits:

Mango is one of the most significant trees on the planet. It is also one of the oldest cultivated trees.

Mangoes are native to southeastern Asia or India where they have been grown for more than 4,000 years.

The mango tree is not just the source of delicious fruit-to the Indians it is a symbol of love, a granter of wishes. Mango leaves are featured at all kinds of functions such as marriage and housewarming.

How it is Grown?

Mango trees are evergreens that will grow to 60 feet tall. The mango tree will fruit 4 to 6 years after planting.

The leaves are green, leathery and large, to 12 inches across. New leaves can be somewhat red or yellow in color. Mango flowers appear in spring to summer, depending on variety, are sweetly fragrant and attractive.

Mangos normally reach maturity in 4 to 5 months from flowering.

The Mango flesh ranges from pale-yellow to deep-orange. It is essentially peach-like but much more fibrous; is extremely juicy, with a flavor range from very sweet to tart.

Interesting Facts:

The Mango is the world's most consumed fruit and is the number one selling fruit in the world.

India is the major mango producer of the world. India grows more mangoes than all its other fruits combined.

There more than 1,000 different varieties of mangos throughout the world.

You can ripen them by putting the mangoes in a paper bag. Alternatively, you can leave the mango in a warm area away from the sun.

The tree is long-lived, some specimens being known to be 300 years old and still fruiting.

Goodness:

Well-being:

Eating mango is a healthy way to achieve your goal of five fruits and vegetables a day. Doctors recommend a minimum of 5 servings a day of fruit and vegetables to maintain good health. Just half a mango counts as one serving.

Vitamins & Minerals:

Mangoes are a rich source of Vitamin A, and have good amounts of Vitamins B and C. It also has calcium, iron, potassium and a little protein in mangoes.

Weight Reduction:

With an average calorie count of only 95 for a medium sized mango, it's no wonder smart slimmers choose mangoes. A ripe mango contains water, but little carbohydrates and no fat.

Fiber Source:

Mangoes are also high in fiber, and contain a small amount of carbohydrates, which the body converts to energy.

Antioxidants:

Dieticians recommend that we should eat large amounts of antioxidant vitamins - and mangoes are a succulent source of these.

Heart Disease:

Mangoes have more carotenoids than most other fruits - and that helps to ward off colds and reduces the risk of cancer and heart disease.

Use of Mango Flowers:

Dried mango flowers, containing 15% tannin, serve as astringents in cases of diarrhea, chronic dysentery and catarrh of the bladder.

How can you enjoy?

Eating a mango fresh and dripping with juice is an exquisite experience in stickiness. For fullest flavor, let chilled mangos reach room temperature before eating.

Green mangos (unripe) are used to make chutney and pickles.

Tender mango pickle is delicious with curd rice.

Green mangos (Half-ripe) are sweet & sour in taste and tasty with salt.

Green or ripe mangos may be used to make relish.

Mango lassi is delightful summer time special drink: Add 5 tsps of mango pulp and 1 tsp of sugar with Yogurt, beat it and serve chilled.

Bottled mango drinks are available all across the world.
