Mango's Origin

For the past weeks, i been thinking of making a mango float. It's a dessert we make for sweet tooth in the Philippines. I really missed it now. I've been bogging my hubby to drop by at Filipino store. But, we never have time since he always work. Well, we might purchase next week. lol!

Anyway, we already bought mangoes. But, we might eat it before we could make a mango float. lol! Who cant resist looking a sweet mango. Nobody does! Its yummy. Speaking of sweet mangoes, ill share something with you about the origin of mango. Since, i was confused why our very own country used "Mango" our Philippines fruit. So, i looked online and found out the reasons.

Based on my research, Mango is one of the most important and wide cultivated fruits of the tropical world. Its origin is lost in antiquity; according to some authorities, horticultural forms are derived from Mangifera indica, of the cashew family (Anacardiaceae), considered indigenous to the region of eastern India, Burma and Assam; but other species, such as M. laurina, may have entered into the composition of some, particularly those of the Malayan region.

Mango also called as " king of tropical fruits". No wonder, it only live in tropical areas. Its fruits is the most delicious and best tasted of any fruit in the word. Do you agree with that? Of course, nobody cant resist not to loved the wholesome st Mango fruit. You can even used this fruit as ingredients for desserts or for your menus.. Like mango float, mango shakes, halo-halo, mango soup and etc.... Uhhhhm yummy! huh! Anyway, that's all for now- i better go to the kitchen and make a mango shake.
