The Mangifera Sensation, also known as the mango tree, is an evergreen tree with a dense, spreading crown. The leaves are long, dark green, and pointed.
Height and Crown Width
A mature mango tree can reach a height of up to 20 meters and have a crown width of about 10 meters.
The roots of the mango tree are extensive and shallow.
Mango is native to South Asia but is now cultivated in many tropical and subtropical regions worldwide.
Cultivation and Care
Mango thrives best in warm, tropical, or subtropical climates. It requires plenty of sunlight and well-drained soil. Regular watering is important, especially during dry periods.
Harvest and Taste
The first harvest of mangos usually occurs after 3-6 years, depending on the variety and conditions. The fruits have an oval shape and a smooth, thin skin, which can be green, yellow, or red depending on the variety. The taste of the mango is sweet and juicy, with a characteristic exotic aroma.
Mango fruits are versatile and can be eaten raw or processed into juices, smoothies, chutneys, salads, and desserts.
Mangos are rich in vitamins (especially vitamin C and A), minerals, and antioxidants. They can strengthen the immune system, improve skin health, and promote digestion.
Mango trees are usually self-pollinating, but pollination by insects, especially bees, can improve fruit set.
