The Most Surprising Things About Mango

Mangoes have been cultivated in South Asia for over 4,000 years. By the 10th century AD, they had made their way to East Africa and the Middle East via Persian traders. In many cultures, the mango is not only a fruit, but a symbol of love and prosperity. In India, for example, mango leaves are often used in floral decorations at weddings and religious ceremonies to bring good luck.

There are over 500 known varieties of mangoes worldwide. This diversity is due to the mango's ability to easily hybridize, resulting in a wide range of flavors, shapes, sizes, and colors. Mangoes are more than just delicious. They are also incredibly nutritious, packed with over 20 different vitamins and minerals. Particularly high in vitamins A and C, mangoes support eye health, immune function, and skin integrity.

Mangoes are one of the most consumed fruits in the world. In several tropical and subtropical countries, they are vital to the economy as a major agricultural export. 

The bark, leaves and skin of the mango tree contain urushiol, the same chemical found in poison ivy. While this makes the tree's parts somewhat toxic and irritating to some people, it acts as a natural pest repellent. Some mango varieties, especially those from Southeast Asia, have polyembryonic seeds, meaning that one seed can produce multiple seedlings, a rare trait among fruit-bearing trees.
