The mango is a fleshy stone fruit belonging to the genus Mangifera that has been cultivated in South Asia for thousands of years. With distribution now worldwide, it is one of the most cultivated fruits in the tropics.
Mango is the national fruit of India, Pakistan, Philippines, and the national tree of Bangladesh. Many tropical and subtropical regions only cultivate the "Indian mango."
Mango trees can grow to 115 to 130 feet tall and still bear fruit after 300 years. The fruit takes three to six months to ripen. Although almost half of the world's mangoes are cultivated in South Asia, particularly in Thailand and the Philippines, they're also grown in California's Central Valley and the Caribbean.
In this recipe, our dried Diced Mango rehydrates into a juicy, succulent base for a quick, sweet-savory chutney. Serve it with roasted or grilled meat and fish, spread it on sandwiches or serve it with a cheese plate as a unique accompaniment.
