Take a Journey with Mango
The farm-to-table journey of a mango is full of colorful moments, joyful memories, and encounters with many fascinating people along the way.
Though mangos come to the U.S. primarily from South American countries and the Caribbean, such as Mexico, Haiti, Ecuador, Peru, Guatemala, and Brazil, they are known as the “King of Fruits” because of their extensive popularity among the world’s tropics. This fruit, originally from India, can be found throughout East Asia and the Pacific, along with South Asia and Australia.
