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.

The mango is also deeply symbolic. Buddha was said to have been "presented with a mango grove that he might find repose in its grateful shade."
