Together with the banana, the mango is one of the most important fruits from the tropics. Mango goes perfectly well with other types of fruits as well as spicy and creamy ingredients. This large-stoned fruit is available in all kinds of shapes and sizes, depending on the variety. A mango contains just as much vitamin C as an orange. Ripe mangos are deliciously sweet, but unripe mangos can also be used in cooking, such as in sweet and sour curries.
