It’s the season of summer, the season of the ‘King of the Fruits!’ – Mango. It isn’t difficult to guess why Mango is called the ‘King’. But let us tell you anyway. Its sweet & sour but rich taste and healthy nutritional properties are the primary reasons. But, apart from that, what’s not to claim it as the best fruit ever? From its early origins in South Asia, to its grown fame worldwide, mango has become versatile over time. With nearly 300 varieties of mangoes grown and found in India, and other parts of the world, including some well known varieties – Alphonso, Kesar, Dussehri and Totapuri, this summer fruit has got the world hooked to its unique taste!
