The king of summer fruits is the delectable and juicy mango. The fruit is a great source of vitamins A, C, and D which is why it is consumed widely all over the globe.

In India alone, mangoes come in more than a hundred different varieties with unique colours, shapes and sizes. Some of the most popular varieties include Alphonso, Mallika, Malda, Balia, Amrapali, Himsagar, Fazia, Gelchia, Nigarin Kheria, Ruchika, Chorasya, Dhaman, Dhoon and Shamasi.

Hence, National Mango Day is observed on 22 July every year to honour this much-loved fruit and to keep mangoes as the focus of the day.

History and Significance:

Mangoes were first grown in India almost 5,000 years ago. With time, the word mango (which was derived from the Malayalam word manna) began to be used by English and Spanish-speaking nations. When the Portuguese arrived in Kerala in 1498, they heard the word  as 'Manga' and slowly began using the term mango.

The mango tree was not introduced into the Western Hemisphere until around 1700 owing to the difficulty of transporting its seeds. In the 18th century, it was successfully planted in Brazil. This juicy fruit is cultivated mostly in frost-free tropical type of climate.
