Wonderfully sweet, and pretty healthy.
Mangos are now cultivated in nearly all tropical and subtropical countries. The stone fruit grows on a tree that can soar to heights of up to 30 meters (nearly 100 feet). A leathery peel, green and sometimes with red markings, surrounds the juicy fruit pulp and the flat, large mango pit.
A mature mango tastes wonderfully sweet and is considered very healthy despite its high sugar content – because mangoes are rich in vitamin C, vitamin E, and B vitamins, e.g., vitamin B1 and folic acid. Among all varieties of fruit, this exotic treat delivers the highest content of provitamin A, which plays an important role in cell renewal, the body’s defenses, and the visual process.
Mangoes are very versatile and especially popular in beverages, e.g., as juice or nectar, in cocktails, shakes, lassis, and smoothies. The fruit is also perfect for preserving as jam or compote.
