Though many countries grow them, mangoes have thought to be native to India and  have been cultivated for more than 4,000 years. The tree is related to the pistachio and cashew and grows to an average of 50 feet in height. Each tree produces about 100 mangoes.


Cut fresh mangoes lengthwise, along the pit. Once you learn to locate the mango pit, the rest is easy.  The long, 1/2- to 3/4-inch-thick pit runs the length of the fruit between the two plump cheeks.
