Mangos originated in East India, Burma and the Andaman Islands bordering the Bay of Bengal.

Mangos are bursting with protective nutrients. The vitamin content depends upon the variety and maturity of the fruit, when the mango is green the amount of vitamin C is higher, as it ripens the amount of beta carotene (vitamin A) increases. Mangos are a great source of potassium.

There are over 20 million metric tons of mangos grown throughout the tropical and sub-tropical world (India, Mexico, China, Pakistan, Indonesia, Thailand, Nigeria, Brazil, Philippines and Haiti).
