Mango

The mango plant is native to South and South-East Asia, and is now cultivated worldwide in many tropical and subtropical regions. The fruit varies in size and colour and is available in many varieties. It has a unique rich flavour and frangrance. Mangoes are rich in nutrients including vitamins A, B and C, and contain nearly 20% sugar. They are used in popular Thai dishes in the unripe form, and in the ripened form, served in several desserts.This delicious fruit is great with ice cream or for making a traditional mango mousse or sorbet. Mango can be cooked in curries and other savoury dishes – it goes especially well with chicken. It can be also made into a sweet chutney, or into mango pickle that is often served with curries.
