Cultivated in India for several thousand years, mangoes come in hundreds of varieties.

With a taste described by many as a cross between a peach and a pineapple, mangoes make a delicious ingredient in sweet and savory salads, salsas, smoothies or desserts.

These tropical fruits are high in beta-carotene and other carotenoids, as well as vitamin C.

Culinary Caution! Be advised, these sweet fruits contain 24 grams of sugar per 1 cup serving.
