Take a trip to a mango farm in Guatemala!
Happy Arbor Day, mango fans! We’re back with a special trip to a mango farm in Guatemala to celebrate our favorite trees. We had the opportunity to tour through the farm, learn about the process of growing the fruit, and taste mangos straight from the tree.
Watch the latest National Mango Board vlog here for a glimpse into our visit, while learning a few fun mango facts. During our visit, we were lucky to see three varieties of mangos growing on the trees – Tommy Atkins, Keitt, and Honey mangos. You should be able to find Tommy and Honey mangos in your grocery store right now, and Keitts will be available later in the summer.
In addition to these commercially available varieties, Guatemala is home to many other locally grown mangos – many are even grown in people’s backyards! What are your favorite mango varieties and where are they grown around the world?
