Mango

Mango is one of my favorite fruits, and many people around the world consider mango to be the most delicious fruit. On the one hand, of course, it is difficult to call it exotic, because you can buy it in any large supermarket in Russia, but anyone who has tried mango in the places of its growth will say that fruit in the store is absolutely not the same as fresh. Mango originally from India, now it is grown literally around the world, where there are suitable conditions. And in every country mango will have its own flavor notes!

The classic color of ripe mango is yellow, but among 35 massively grown varieties there are other colors, such as purple, green or black. Therefore, when buying mangoes of green color, it is necessary to clarify, maybe this is such a variety and the fruit is already ripe.

In addition to its amazing aroma and rich, easily recognizable taste, mango has very useful properties, for example, it affects the organs of vision very well and strengthens the immune system.
