The mango (Mangifera spp.; plural mangos
or mangoes) is a genus of about 35 species of tropical fruiting trees
in the flowering plant family Anacardiaceae, native to India and
Indo-China, of which the Indian Mango M. indica is by far the most
Reference to mangos as the "food of the gods" can be found in the Hindu
Vedas, written in about 4000 B.C. The name of the fruit comes from the
Tamil word man-kay, which was corrupted to manga by the Portuguese when
they explored western India. The mango also features as a common motif,
known as the paisley, in Indian textiles.
