Day 203 – July 22

National Mango Day 

Here are some fun facts I robbed from some random Mango website!!!

  • Mangos are one of the most popular fruit in the World
  • Mangos were first grown in India over 5,000 years ago
  • Mango seeds traveled with humans from Asia to the Middle East, East Africa and South America beginning around 300 or 400 A.D.
  • The paisley pattern, developed in India, is based on the shape of a mango
  • A basket of mangos is considered a gesture of friendship in India
  • Legend says that Buddha meditated under the cool shade of a mango tree
  • Mangos are related to cashews and pistachios
  • A mango tree can grow as tall as 100 feet
  • The bark, leaves, skin and pit of the mango have been used in folk remedies for centuries

Also, you should know they  provide 100% of your daily vitamin C, 35% of your daily vitamin A and 12% of your daily fibre!!!

I also robbed this info from the same website !!

I celebrated by buying one, cutting it up and eating it!
