The name mango, by which the fruit is known in English- and Spanish-speaking countries, is most likely derived from the Malayam manna, which the Portuguese adopted as manga when they came to Kerala in 1498 for the spice trade. Mango is an edible stone fruit produced by the tropical tree Mangifera indica which originated in the region between north-western Myanmar, Bangladesh, and north-eastern India. M. indica has been cultivated in South and Southeast Asia since ancient times resulting in two distinct types of modern mango cultivars: the “Indian type” and the “Southeast Asian type”. Other species in the genus Mangifera also produce edible fruits that are also called “mangoes”, the majority of which are found in the Malesian ecoregion.
Globally, there are several hundred cultivars of mango. Depending on the cultivar, mango fruit varies in size, shape, sweetness, skin colour, and flesh colour which may be pale yellow, gold, green, or orange. The mango is the national fruit of India, Pakistan and the Philippines, while the mango tree is the national tree of Bangladesh. In Australia, mangoes are grown in tropical and subtropical regions of the Northern Territory, Queensland, New South Wales, and Western Australia.
