Origins and history of cultivation

Mango is one of the most important and cultivated fruits of the tropical world, where it comes from. The mango tree is thought to derive from the territories of southern Asia (Myanmar and Assam), and numerous varieties have been developed over the centuries. The fruit is very linked to the religious and popular ceremonies of India, and according to tradition a mango grove was given to Buddha so that he could rest under his shade. The name mango probably derives from the Malay manna, which the Portuguese translated as manga when they arrived in Kerala (1498) in search of spices. The difficulty of transporting mango seeds (they last for a short time) led to its introduction elsewhere only in the eighteenth century, when it was planted in Brazil. Mango is now cultivated in most of the warmer tropical and subtropical areas, especially in southern Asia. There are now two main variations, the Indian mango and the Southeast Asian mando. Even today, the infusion of mango leaves is consumed, a very popular drink in Asia and India.

The fruit was known and appreciated for its nutritional and medicinal values, in addition to the ornamental use of the plant.

Today the pomegranate tree is cultivated in several tropical and subtropical regions of the Northern Hemisphere, as it is easily adaptable to various climatic and soil conditions. The best quality fruits appear to be those that grow in arid regions.
