Mango Lesson Plan

Fun Facts About Mango

  • Mangoes are native to southern Asia, particularly eastern India, Myanmar (formerly Burma), and the Andaman Islands. Mangoes have been loved since Ancient times and cultivated for at least 4,000 years.
  • The first mango was cultivated in Florida in 1833, which is the largest US producer. (India is the largest producer world-wide.)
  • One cup of mangos is just 100 calories, so it’s a sweet treat that won’t weigh you down. Each serving of mango is fat free, sodium free, and cholesterol free.
  • The timber of the mango tree is used for boats, flooring, furniture and other applications.
  • In India, flour is made from mango seeds. Seeds are also eaten during periods of food shortages.
