What is a mango

The mango belongs to the family Anacardiaceae in the genus Mangifera.  The family consists of 41 species of which the mango (Mangifera indica) is the most important.  Compared to citrus and bananas, mangoes are the third most important crop in the tropics.

The mango tree is an evergreen medium to large (9 – 35 m) tree.  The tree has a long tap-root up to 6 m in depth and dense mass of feeding roots just beneath the soil surface.   Mango leaves are simple leaves that are entire, leathery, short, pointed and oblong to lanceolate.  Crushed leaves of many cultivars emit a distinct turpentine odour.  New leaves are formed in periodic flushes about two to three times a year.
