    Everyday Mangos

    Drive along any street in Puerto Rico and you’ll find mature mango trees. Abundant with fruit, some nearly 40 feet tall, in back yards, front yards, and along sidewalks—encountering a mango tree is an everyday occurrence.
     
    Native to southern Asia, mango trees were brought to Puerto Rico around 1750. These prolific trees burst with fresh fruit dangling from their branches April through August.  A staple fruit in the Puerto Rican diet, mangos abound at every community market, grocery store, or street-side vendor. And because many Puerto Ricans enjoy “back yard” mango trees, the fruit is often shared among neighbors, families, and friends.
