Just in case if you have never heard of a mango, then let it be my pleasure to introduce them to you! These are a tropical/subtropical medium to large tree that can grow in a container or directly into the ground. They need a minimum of 6 hours of full sun and can grow in a variety of soils. The very first mangoes originated from India hundreds of years ago, since they there are over 500 varieties in the United States alone! Every mango variety has different flavor profiles, shapes and growing habits but they all are a delicious sweet fruit to eat. Here in South Florida, our climate affords us the luck to grow some of the tastiest and hardiest varieties of mango trees just for you.
