The mango tree is an evergreen just like pine and spruce trees, though it has flat leaves like a deciduous tree. Mango fruit can be small or large - the biggest can weigh up to 5 pounds!
Did you know? Mangos are described as having a spicy-sweet taste. Some people like to eat fresh mangoes sprinkled with salt, lime juice, or even hot pepper!
They are also used in salsas and other savory dishes. Mangoes are a member of the cashew family. Cashews are a popular tree nut.
