Mango, India's or Asia's greatest gift to people with a good taste, is also known as the 'King of Fruits'. In their original form, Mangoes come from the forest of Assam in north-east India and Myanmar. The mango tree bears fruit in the height of summer. It is observed, the warmer the temperature the sweeter the fruit, and the sweeter it is the juicier it gets. There are more than a thousand odd varieties of this wonderful fruit to satisfy our taste buds. They come in different shapes like a ball, or oval in shape, kidney shaped or just long and thin. It can be of red and yellow colour like the setting sun or even green as a leaf.
How this king of fruits got its name is an interesting story. The name comes from Tamil. From Man-Kay, it was altered to manga. The Portuguese after coming in the country as colonisers changed the name to mango. It was their experimentation and inquisitiveness about the juicy fruit that we have so many different varieties of the sumptuous fruit. The famous Alphonso or Mulgoa that we cherish today, are the result of their hard work and research.
History is a witness to the existence of this fruit since time immemorial. The ancient scriptures like Upnishads have spoken about the fruit 3000 years ago, but, the world has savoured it for only for the last 300 years! It was mentioned in the Upnishads by the name of amra, rasala and sahakara. Down the ages, several qualities have got attached to the mango. It is seen as a symbol of good luck. In many parts of west and south India, mango leaves are put up at the front door. It is a belief that the mango tree has the power to make wishes come true. The mango tree is also associated with the God of love 'Manmatha' its blossoms are considered to be the God's arrows. Moreover, it is said that the Buddha created a white mango tree which was later worshipped by his followers.
